Prior to Friday’s game against the Warriors, Thabo Sefolosha sat at his locker with a hard cast on his right foot. The Thunder swingman has been suffering from a lingering tendon injury that's already kept him out of the lineup for 11 straight games.

Recent reports indicated Sefolosha would get a walking boot for the foot, so the hard cast is definitely a bad sign.

The Swiss-born Sefolosha told reporters Friday he’ll miss another month because of the injury. He will wear the hard cast for a week, switch to a walking boot and then rehab for two weeks.

Sefolosha last played on Jan. 27 against the Warriors. Daequan Cook, who has been starting in his place, will continue in that role.

Thunder's Sefolosha (foot) out another month

He will be back long before the playoffs so no big deal.

I think this is great for Cook. Not that he has outplayed Sefolosha, but he has looked to be ready for a chance to prove he can be a consistant player. Harden and Cook can handle all the minutes at SG. The more time Cook gets now, the more he will be ready to handle minutes in the playoffs if needed. And that means more sound options for the coach.

Tough loss, Sefolosha adds more than depth to this team.
