We already knew that Kevin Durant wouldn’t suit up again until next season—the OKC Thunder announced Tuesday that the NBA’s reigning MVP underwent successful bone graft surgery for the fifth metatarsal of his right foot.
Thank you for all the support people, it really means a lot, my mommy here givin me for head kisses. This is the life.

The timeline for KD’s return to basketball activities is four-to-six months.
It remains your show, Russell Westbrook.
From the press release:
The procedure was performed by Dr. Martin O’Malley with Thunder medical personnel present at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Durant will miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season and is expected to return to full basketball activities in the next four to six months.
The reigning NBA Kia Most Valuable Player appeared in 27 games (all starts) during the 2014-15 campaign, averaging 25.4 points on 51.0 percent shooting from the floor (238-of-467), 6.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 33.8 minutes per game.
