Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Thunder officials confirmed Sunday morning that Kevin Durant has been diagnosed with a Jones fracture, and he could miss six to eight weeks. 

According to a statement released by Thunder officials, after practice on Saturday, Durant made officials aware of discomfort in his right foot. Officials said they proceeded to perform the necessary imaging studies to determine the cause of his discomfort. At this time, Durant has been diagnosed with a Jones fracture.

According to officials, traditional treatment of this injury requires a surgical procedure, and recent NBA cases have resulted in a return to play in six to eight weeks.

Officials said they are in the process of collaboratively evaluating the most appropriate next steps with Durant, his representatives, and Thunder medical personnel.

Until a course of action is determined, officials said they are unable to provide a timeline specific to Durant's case.
