"Over the last several days, Cameron has had consultations with multiple specialists to determine the best course of action to treat his right foot injury," Presti said in his statement. "Based on these consultations and the options provided, Cameron has chosen to pursue a non-surgical route provided by the physicians that is intended to ideally allow the bone to heal on its own and avoid surgery. Cameron, his representatives, and the Thunder fully understand that if the bone is not healing appropriately, or if at any point there is a setback in his return to play, surgery may still be required. He will be re-evaluated in 6-8 weeks."

Payne had surgery on a Jones fracture in his foot earlier this summer, but was cleared for training camp until the second injury occurred. Payne's official injury is an acute fracture to his fifth metatarsal (outside bone) on his right foot.

Last season Payne averaged five points and nearly two assists per game in only 12.2 minutes per game as a rookie.
