Thunder star Kevin Durant has bone graft surgery

AP Sports Writer

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Thunder star Kevin Durant has had successful bone graft surgery for a fracture in his right foot.

The team has said the league's reigning MVP will miss the rest of the season and is expected to return to full basketball activities in four to six months.

The Thunder said in a statement that Dr. Martin O'Malley operated Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, with team medical personnel present.

It was the third surgery Durant has had on the foot. He had the initial procedure last October, then had a screw replaced in February.

Durant appeared in just 27 games this season, averaging 25.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists.
