The 2014 NBA MVP will be on the shelf for a longer time than expected, according to Oklahoma City Thunder general manger Sam Presti. Presti announced today that Kevin Durant has been removed from all basketball related actives and is now out indefinitely. Oklahoma City has been without Durant for most of the 2014-2015 season after Durant broke his right foot before the season started after pulling out Team USA in fear of getting injured.

Durant recently underwent surgery on his right foot again on February 22nd to remove soreness in his right foot that had been lingering throughout the season. The injury has limited Durant to just 27 games this season, and it looks like the Thunder could be without Kevin Durant for the start of the playoffs at this rate.
Durant is currently averaging 25.4 points, 4.1 assists, and 6.6 rebounds per game this season. Durant has also not played since February 19th versus the Dallas Mavericks where he shot 4-12 from the field or 12 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists in the Thunder’s 104-89 win.
