Duncan's Injury
Still too soon to say until he gets his knee examined today, but how huge of a loss would Tim be to the Spurs if he was gone for the season. :confused:

Looks like his replacement would be none other than the "Red Rocket". Watch Bonner pad those stats. :D


Duncan injured his right knee against Portland. Initial prediction is that his ligaments are intact, but an MRI on Monday will determine his status for the remainder of the year.

Imagine a playoffs without the Spurs, that would be different. I hope they lose the rest of their remaining games, they get away with more stuff then the Lakers did when they had Shaq and Kobe, it's ridiculous.

James Jones FTW!

It would be a big loss of course, but they are too good to go anywhere near to the 50% win percentage. Parker and Manu will take over and this can be even positive for San Antonio.

Don't fret Spurs fans, Duncan's knee will be fine and will only miss a couple games.


The San Antonio Spurs received some encouraging news Monday afternoon when an MRI exam came back negative on Tim Duncan's right knee and right ankle, both injured in the first half of Sunday's home victory over Portland.

Duncan has been ruled out of Wednesday's showdown with San Antonio's longstanding rivals from Dallas, but Spurs spokesman Tom James said that a firm diagnosis on how long Duncan will be out is at least a day or two away.

The Spurs say they want to see how Duncan responds to treatment before putting an estimate on his return date. But they are treating it as a short-term injury, which naturally comes as a great relief to the defending champs. Things didn't look especially promising when Duncan went down hard after tangling with Portland's James Jones in the second quarter Sunday, with the two-time MVP requiring the help of teammates to leave the floor.

"It's not a big deal at all," Spurs spokesman Tom James said.

"It's more scary than anything else -- at least that's what I'm hoping," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said initially.

Although Duncan's right knee is still sore, he'll be listed as inactive with a sprained right ankle Wednesday when the Mavericks visit the AT&T Center for the first time season. The Mavs won the teams' first meeting in Dallas on Nov. 15.

Even if Duncan winds up missing a week or two, San Antonio has a favorable schedule in December to cope with his absence. The Spurs are one of only two teams in the league still unbeaten at home this season at 10-0 -- Boston is the other at 9-0 -- and will be on the road for only three of their 12 games this month.
