I recall many wondering what in the world the Thunder were doing with Westbrook last season. Seems like that worked out to me.
Also: This decision was made in collaboration with three of the top foot/ankle specialists in the world. This wasn't just a Thunder thing.
They did the same thing with Westbrook's full meniscus repair in the 2013 postseason. They prioritize long-term health over the present.
Many are going to spin this however they want, but by going with the bone graft, the Thunder are taking a proactive long-term approach.
With Jones fracture repairs, 92-95% experience full recovery with the screw insert. For the 5-8% that don't, the bone graft if the next step
I need to stop everything and call my mother for her birthday. I missed my bro's yesterday and feel awful. Some things are bigger than bball
Season 9 TPB!🙌🙌🙌
FYI: None of the 6 surgeries on Russell Westbrook's rt knee or Kevin Durant's rt foot will have been performed by the Thunder's medical team
Four months from now is late July. Six months from now is late September. Training camp is in October, season starts around Halloween.
Durant's initial fracture was showing signs of "regression" and will undergo a bone graft procedure. Will return to basketball in 4-6 months
Kevin Durant out for the rest of the season, per Thunder.
The Thunder has announced that Kevin Durant will miss the remainder of the regular season and needs a third surgery on his right foot.
Thunder announce Kevin Durant will miss the remainder of the 2014-15 regular season.
Thunder GM Sam Presti is scheduled to release a written statement shortly updating the status of injured forward Kevin Durant.
Steven Adams on his elbow http://t.co/3CTFtzxuUm
Steven Adams went through all of practice today. Said elbow hurts and he's a bit banged up, but a go tomorrow vs Jazz.
Scott Brooks would provide no hints about the forthcoming release. I even asked what the first word was. Wouldn't say.
Scott Brooks said Sam Presti will release a statement on Kevin Durant today. Wouldn't provide a hint to what it is.
Scott Brooks says the Thunder will release an update on Kevin Durant later this afternoon.
Play from that film room that perfectly illustrates Serge Ibaka's irreplaceable defensive capabilities: http://t.co/GZX2hXJXj7
Billy Dee Williams just subbed into the game 😭😭😭
Dönersem Kalleşim.! Dönersek Kalleşiz..!

Suns lose to the Kings in Phoenix, so despite losing by 39 in San Antonio, the Thunder don't give up any ground.
Russell Westbrook is apparently a little confused: http://t.co/BT2yZgsS9f
Russell Westbrook: "They just played harder than us. We just weren't ready to play. Simple as that."
Tonight's 39-point loss was the second worst in Thunder history. Lost to the TWolves by 42 on Jan. 7, 2009 (inaugural season).
Meanwhile, the Suns are trailing by 13 on their home floor to the Kings. Thunder could catch a second break tonight. Pelicans already lost.
Final: Spurs 130, Thunder 91.
Final: Spurs 130, Thunder 91. A 39-point loss in which Spurs go for 32, 39, 29 and 30 points by quarter.
Spurs beat the Thunder 130-91. That's pretty much all you need to know.
Wait, I thought the Spurs called off the dogs.
Life update: Spurs up 33, and Get That Ball Lady has yet to stop demanding the Spurs get that ball.
I don't think I've ever seen a player have more rotations on his shot than D.J. Augustin. Watch how the ball rotates next time he shoots.
Spurs points by quarter tonight: 32, 39, 29 = 100 before the fourth.
Spurs lead 100-74 after three. Only scored 29 that quarter.
Good news for the Thunder tonight: Pelicans lost at home to Rockets, Suns trailing Kings at halftime in Phoenix.
With OKC down 30, PJ3 will go nuts and the rest of my week will be spent answering questions about why he doesn't play more. Guaranteed.
Hey, good news: Enes Kanter has his 11th double-double with the Thunder (seventh straight). (Also: The Thunder are currently down 30.)
And oh, yeah, Thunder down 30. Wouldn't be a terrible idea to rest Westbrook/Kanter and others for the night.
Enes Kanter has extended his point-rebound double-double streak to seven games. Longest in Thunder history previously was five.
From the replays, it looks like a right forearm thing with Steven Adams. Staying in.
Haha. Westbrook with an old school move. The old 'you ain't just gonna keep getting wherever you want to go.'
Adams stays in, continues to flex his right hand. This dude is tough as nails.
Steven Adams goes down hard, gets up favoring his right hand.
Steven Adams appears to be in some serious pain. Flexing his formerly broken right hand.
71 is the most points the Thunder have allowed in any half this season.
Spurs up 21 at halftime. Thunder defense has been a massive issue of late. SAS really exposing it: 71 points on 63!!! percent shooting.
Spurs lead the Thunder 71-50 at half. Westbrook 16 and 3 assists, Kanter 10 and 5 rebounds. Spurs shooting 62.8 percent.
At the half, San Antonio leads Oklahoma City, 71-50. Spurs shooting 62.8 percent. Thunder shooting 43.2 percent.
Looks like Scott Brooks just got a warning for barking too much. Next time might be a tech on him.
Rockets beat the Pelicans, giving the Thunder a bit of a free pass tonight in San Antonio (Suns are playing the Kings right now).
If Kyle Singler were really, really, really, really good, he'd be Kawhi Leonard.
We've seen this Spurs offense against a Thunder defense without Serge Ibaka before. Didn't end well. SAS shooting 60% right now.
So it's pretty obvious: The Thunder can't guard the Spurs right now.
Spurs burst out for eight straight right after Westbrook enters. SAS up 12.
Spurs still look like the Spurs to me.
Took 16 minutes, but the Thunder finally attempted a three. Steve Novak drills it, OKC trails Spurs 41-37.
Wasn't pretty, but that OKC bench unit just played the Spurs even for the first four minutes of the second quarter. Big victory as Russ sat.
That last Spurs possession is why I love watching San Antonio. They play a beautiful game.
This Matt Bonner/Steve Novak matchup is what I came to San Antonio to see.
My goodness the Spurs can move the basketball!
Thunder going with Perry Jones and Mitch McGary as the 4-5 frontcourt combo right now.
A decent defensive quarter at this point for the Thunder is, what, 27 points or less? Spurs go for 32 on 64% FG in first quarter.
All five of Westbrook's FGs came on layups in the first quarter. He's getting into the paint at will. But so are the Spurs, who lead 32-28.
