OKLAHOMA CITY -- There is more bad news for Thunder star and reigning NBA MVP Kevin Durant.

General manager Sam Presti says Durant still has pain in his right foot and will remain out indefinitely. Durant will see specialists to determine the next step.

Earlier this month, coach Scott Brooks said Durant could return to the lineup in 1-2 weeks. Instead, Oklahoma City is facing the prospect of trying to make the playoffs without him.

Durant last played Feb. 19 against Memphis and had surgery three days later to replace a screw that was causing discomfort in the right foot that he broke during the preseason.

Thunder forward Serge Ibaka could miss the rest of the season after having an arthroscopic procedure on his right knee earlier this week.
