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.

Over the past week, Adrian Peterson, the Minnesota Vikings' all-world running back and one of the NFL's biggest stars, has become the face of corporal punishment in America. Peterson turned himself in to police over the weekend on charges of child abuse after he allegedly hit his son with a switch that left welts on his body.
Morrow, who played for New Orleans last season, has career averages of 10.4 points and 2.5 rebounds per game in six NBA seasons. He helps fill a void created when starting shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha signed with the Atlanta Hawks after becoming a free agent.
