Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star forward Kevin Durant hasn’t appeared in a NBA game since Feb. 19 after undergoing another procedure on his right foot on Feb. 22.
It’s been a rough season, to say the least, for Durant and the Thunder, too, but KD has no plans to shut it down the rest of this season according to a report from ESPN’s Royce Young:
Kevin Durant asked if he’ll return this season: “No doubt.”

It’s not a surprise that Durant plans to come back before season’s end, as Thunder general manager Sam Presti told Young last month that he expected Durant to not miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season.
Presti: “All expectations are [Durant] will return during the regular season.”

Even without Durant, the Thunder have stayed afloat winning four of their last six games without their 2014 MVP.
Durant is averaging 25.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game in 27 games this season.
