Kevin Durant went under the knife on Sunday to help alleviate the discomfort and soreness he was feeling in his right foot. Back in October, Durant had a screw placed in his foot after it was discovered that he had a Jones fracture, which is a break at the base of the pinky toe. Now, in a statement released by Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti, KD was feeling pain because the screw inserted at the fifth metatarsal was rubbing against another bone. 

Durant, who has been trying to play through the pain for the past two weeks, had a new screw inserted and according to Presti, the 2014 NBA MVP will be re-evaluated in a week. It is believed that KD will return during the regular season.
