OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kevin Durant has a fractured foot and the Oklahoma City Thunder say they are not sure how long the NBA's MVP will be sidelined.

General Manager Sam Presti said in a statement Sunday that Durant informed the team of "discomfort" in his right foot after practice a day earlier.

He underwent tests and the team says he was diagnosed with a "Jones" fracture. The team says traditional treatment requires surgery, and recent NBA cases have resulted in a return to play in six to eight weeks.

The team says it is "collaboratively evaluating the most appropriate next steps with Kevin, his representatives and Thunder medical personnel." It adds, that until a course of action is set "we are unable to provide a timeline specific to Kevin's case."
