With news of a second surgery to his right foot, Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder’s chances of making the playoffs in the tightly contested Western Conference seem to be slipping away.

“As we have conveyed, Kevin has experienced increased soreness in his right foot recently and as a result we initiated a process to determine the best way to manage it moving forward,” Thunder general manager Sam Presti said, per a team statement. “In order to alleviate that discomfort, it was determined after consultation with Dr. Robert Anderson, and after receiving a second opinion from Dr. Martin O’Malley, that because the fracture itself has continued to heal as anticipated, there was an opportunity to address irritation from the screw, and make an adjustment to a different piece of hardware within the foot to relieve the symptoms of his soreness.”
