OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma City Thunder say star forward Kevin Durant had successful surgery Thursday to address a bone fracture in his right foot and will be out at least six weeks.

General manager Sam Presti said the procedure was performed at a clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina, after the team, Durant and his representatives "jointly decided" surgery was needed. Durant will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

The reigning NBA MVP was diagnosed over the weekend with a "Jones fracture," a broken bone at the base of his small toe.

The Thunder open the season Oct. 29 at Portland. A six-week absence could have Durant back for the start of December, with about 65 games remaining.
