Sam Presti also says Reggie Jackson may miss a little time as well with a right wrist contusion but will be back relatively soon.
Presti: "He could be playing on it today but he'd be doing further damage to it."
Sam Presti on KD's fracture: "He could be playing on it today. But he'd be doing more damage to it."
Sam Presti quoting Ernest Hemingway is the most Sam Presti thing ever: "forget your personal tragedy"
Presti says he's been told a Jones fracture is the most common injury for NBA players.
Presti: "In these cases you can either withdraw or advance, and we're going to advance."
Presti: "With any adversity, we're looking for the opportunity."
Sam Presti said the team, Durant and his reps will decide best course of medical action in next couple days.
Presti says they are fortunate that Durant alerted them early and that they caught it on the "front end" of the injury.
Sam Presti: "We're really fortunate we're catching it when we're catching it...before it becomes an acute issue."
Sam Presti said Kevin Durant 'felt a little bit of aching' after practice yesterday.
Presti says Durant told the medical staff he felt an "aching" in his foot.
Morning world! Stay positive today! Enjoy life
Before that was the 2010-11 season where Westbrook played four games without KD. OKC went 3-1. Russ: 26.7 pts, 7.0 asts, 22.5 shots per game
The last time Westbrook played without Durant was the last game of the 2012-13 season where Durant sat and Westbrook only played 7 minutes.
If Kevin Durant became the Slim Reaper last season, Russell Westbrook might just become the devil himself.
Bright side for the Thunder: Early-season injuries are a lot better than late-season ones (Westbrook 2013 playoffs, Serge 2014 playoffs).
Per Wikipedia: "A Jones fracture is a fracture of the diaphysis of the fifth metatarsal of the foot, at the base of the small toe."
Kevin Durant has never missed more than eight games in a season. A 6-8 week timetable would mean he'd miss 15-20 games to start year.
Six weeks would have Durant returning in late November. Eight weeks, early December.
Six to eight weeks is what's typical of a Jones fracture surgery but Durant doesn't currently have a timetable until after the procedure.
Russell Westbrook heard the Durant news and was like ... http://t.co/WgEFkwEZ26
Rough preseason so far for the Thunder. Two games, three key injuries. KD (foot, 6-8 weeks) McGary (foot, 5-7 weeks), Jackson (wrist, dTd).

Watching the Baylor/TCU game on the DVR! This game is crazy!
The Thunder say Reggie Jackson is just day-to-day with a right wrist contusion. Took a hard fall last night against the Mavs.
Too much good football today!!
Steven Adams when told he is 15-of-17 shooting in the preseason: "Layups, bro. Just layups."
No update on Reggie Jackson postgame. He was gone before media entered locker room. No player/staff member wanted to speculate.
Steven Adams on the lefty baseline hook: "That's all luck. Ask me again I can't do it. It was honestly a Hail Mary."
Nice bounce back night for Jeremy Lamb. After going 1-14 against the Nuggets, had 19 points, 11 rebounds and four assists and three steals.
Thunder beat the Mavs 118-109. Morrow leads OKC with 21 points (4-7 from 3), Lamb 19, 11 rebounds and 4 assists, Adams 19 and 5 boards.
Two-guard redemption tonight: -Jeremy Lamb: 19 pts, 11 rebs, 4 asts, 3 stls -Anthony Morrow: 19 pts, 4/7 3FG
There have been 67 combined fouls called in this game, and 83 free throws. EXACTLY what you want to see in a meaningless preseason game.
Anthony Morrow: 19 points, 4-of-7 from 3.
Great bounce back game by Jeremy Lamb. Has 17 points, 10 rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes.
Official word on Reggie Jackson is a right wrist injury. He'll be re-evaluated in OKC on Saturday.
Thunder officials calling it a 'right wrist injury' for Reggie Jackson. Will be reevaluated in OKC.
Meanwhile...We're still waiting on an update on Jackson from team officials.
Anthony Morrow has two 4-point plays in two games with the Thunder.
Two games. Two 4-point plays for Anthony Morrow.
Make it 19 now on 8-9 shooting for Steven Adams. I'm starting to feel a leap year...
Steven Adams just tossed in a silky left-handed hook, then dunked in transition. Adams line: 19 pts, 5 rebs, 4 stls, 3 blks.
After scoring 15 on 7-8 shooting in the opener, Steven Adams is sitting on 15 on 6-7 after three quarters (plus 5 rebs, 4 stls and 3 blks).
One Jeremy Lamb positive: He's been getting to the line a ton. Sixteen FT attempts in seven preseason quarters.
Still waiting on an update on Jackson from team officials.
Dirk: "I played with his dad in Germany and now I'm playing against his son. That's pretty embarrassing."
Dirk just shared a story about Andre Roberson coming up to him and telling him he played with his dad in Germany.
Westbrook done for the night. Jackson has left with an injury. Telfair out with a thumb strain. It's now camp invite Michael Jenkins' show.
Reggie Jackson just left the game with an apparent right elbow injury. Stayed in the game to shoot his free throw and then checked out.
Reggie Jackson then screams, fouls and takes himself out of the game. Heading to locker room holding right elbow. Didn't look good.
Reggie Jackson has to come out of the game with a right arm injury. Happened on a hard fall after a drive to the basket.
Crazy and-1 layup completed by Reggie Jackson, but he landed awkwardly. Shaking his right elbow. Staying in the game.
No Kevin Durant or Russell Westbrook in the second half tonight. KD finishes with 12 pts, 4 ast in 18 mins. RW with 13 pts in 18 mins.
Second half starters for the Thunder: Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb, Andre Roberson, Perry Jones and Steven Adams.
Appears Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are done for the night. Neither is starting the second half.
Durant just shot a one-legged 3-pointer just before the halftime buzzer. It was...interesting.
Andre Roberson 3-point alert. Takes and makes his first of the preseason.
Four Thunder players in double-figures in the first half: -KD: 11 pts on 4/7 FG -Westbrook: 10 on 2/6 -Jackson: 10 on 4/9 -Adams: 11 on 5/6
Steven Adams last two first quarters combined: 11-of-12 FG, 23 points.
Steven Adams 4/4 FG for nine points. His offensive game continues to impress.
Mavs PG Raymond Felton being helped off with what looked like a bad right leg injury. Fell awkwardly on a drive.
Dallas pick-and-rolls killing the Thunder defense right now. Alley-oops, easy dunks, wide-open threes.
The Thunder's new warmups http://t.co/4KNtn2ZcTy
Large hug between Kevin Durant and Tyson Chandler at center court. The two won Olympic Gold together in 2012. About the same height.
Sebastian Telfair is out of tonight's game with a right thumb sprain.
Sebastian Telfair (right thumb strain) will not play tonight.
