The NBA’s reigning MVP literally rolled into his first press conference since undergoing right foot surgeryKevin Durant rode a scooter to protect the joint.

Durant is dealing with the first major injury of his career – expected to keep him sidelined for up to two months – but is in no hurry to get back on the court.

KD knows that Russell Westbrook is good enough (and certainly willing) to carry the OKC Thunder while he recovers.

Per The Oklahoman:

“It’s something that’s definitely going to help my foot and make it better in the long run,” Durant said about surgery.

 

The 2014 NBA Most Valuable Player was positive about missing time to injury, particularly in regard to his teammates. When asked about Russell Westbrook, Durant said he’s had conversations with the Thunder point guard about doing what he always does.

 

“Stay who you are,” Durant said. “You may get more opportunities but you don’t have to change what you do.”
