Thunder shut down Durant indefinitely

Oklahoma City, OK ( - Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant is still not ready to return because of a right foot injury and has been shut down from all basketball activities.

Thunder general manager Sam Presti made the announcement Friday.

"He's not making the progress we had hoped," said Presti, who indicated that Durant could miss the remainder of the season.

Durant hasn't played since Feb. 19 and underwent a procedure a few days later in an effort to alleviate soreness from a screw that was inserted when the reigning NBA MVP had surgery in October to repair a fracture in the foot.

The initial surgery was performed to repair a broken bone at the base of Durant's small toe. He returned on Dec. 2 and has averaged 25.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists in just 27 games this season.
