Thunder Guard Thabo Sefolosha Sees Foot Specialist; Now In Protective Boot

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha went to a foot specialist to check out an injury that has sidelined him for the last 10 games. He's now in a protective boot that will hopefully help him heal faster.

According to's Darnell Mayberry and John Rohde, Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha visited a foot specialist Wednesday to get a second opinion on the foot injury that has sidelined him for the last 10 games in a row. The diagnosis is still the same, the only difference is that Sefolosha is now wearing a protective boot that will hopefully quicken the pace of the healing process.

But it was, however, determined that Sefolosha, who has been listed as day-to-day, will now wear a protective boot to aid and perhaps speed the recovery process. The goal is to immobilize Sefolosha's foot and maximize the rest that he is being given by the team's medical and training staffs.

According to the report, there is no timeline for Sefolosha's return to the team. In the 18 games that Sefolosha did play in this season, he averaged 5.2 points per game. The Thunder are currently sitting in first place in the Western Conference and are first place in the Northwest division.
