Tim Duncan goes down with lower leg injury
Apparently, Tim Duncan has a habit of getting hurt against the Warriors. Last time around he scared the greater San Antonio area when he went down with a knee injury during the Spurs’ January 24 win over Golden State.
In the first quarter of the Spurs’ game Monday night against the Warriors, Duncan hit a basket and landed awkwardly on the foot of Golden State’s Ekpe Udoh. Duncan held his foot and ankle area in pain as the teams went the other way, before the Spurs purposely fouled to stop play.
Spurs trainer Will Sevening checked on Duncan and Steve Novak helped support Duncan on the way to the locker room. Duncan wasn’t able to put much weight on his left leg as he left the floor.
[Update] According to the team, Duncan has a sprained left ankle and will not return.
[Update numero dos] Early word via Art Garcia via Sean Elliott, is that Duncan will be out about two weeks.
