A broken nose, another possible broken nose, food poisoning, lower back tightness, and rest. These were some of the injuries and reasons the San Antonio Spurs walked in and out of Brooklyn with on Thursday, in a 103-89 loss to the Nets.
Before the game even tipped off, the Spurs would be without Tony Parker who was injured in the first half of the Spurs’ Wednesday night game against the Washington Wizards, with lower back tightness. Then, after playing 40 minutes against the Nets, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich decided to rest Tim Duncan Thursday. On top of that, Boris Diaw came down with food poisoning so he too would miss Thursday’s game.
The player’s who were left on the Spurs’ active roster weren’t all spared from the injury bug, as Nando De Colo fractured his nose in the second quarter, and needed to wear a mask in the second half. Then Matt Bonner, who was already wearing a mask, might have re-fractured his already broken nose in the second half as well.no comments
