The Oklahoma City Thunder will be without Kevin Durant for the next 4-6 months as he is scheduled for another foot surgery.
Kevin Durant is going to miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season, and his career now seems to be on the ropes after another foot surgery has been scheduled. This most recent surgery is going to put Durant out of basketball action for the next 4-6 weeks and that’s troubling on a number of levels.
For now, Thunder fans are dealing with the confirmation that Durant will be out for the rest of the season and this year may end up being lost. That’s bold since Russell Westbrook is having an MVP season, but Durant has been out for since February and he’s not returning any time soon.
According to reports, Kevin Durant is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks as he is undergoing foot surgery that will end his season.
The troubling part about this is that Durant’s injuries are starting to pile up and cost the Thunder in a big way. It’s also looking like Durant is on a dangerous road that has claimed the careers of other big men who ran into injury problems that derailed their potential.
Derrick Rose won an MVP and then his body broke. Kevin Durant won an MVP and the season after, his body began to break at a high rate of speed. His foot injury is dangerous, as it’s something that big men have struggled with and lost with in the past. Hopefully Durant doesn’t fall into that pit, but right now his future is uncertain and the Thunder would be wise to take their time bringing him back.
