SAN ANTONIO, TX – San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green has broken his left index finger and is expected to miss the next four weeks of the NBA season, the team announced Monday.
Green’s injury, which came in the first half of San Antonio’s 104-86 home victory over Minnesota on Sunday, is the latest in a series of mishaps over the past 10 days for the Western Conference leaders.
The Spurs are without Brazilian center Tiago Splitter for another two to four weeks after he suffered a right shoulder injury earlier this month and have been playing without Argentine guard Manu Ginobili the past two games due to a tight left hamstring.
Despite the setbacks, the Spurs are 29-8 and on a four-game win streak. San Antonio owns the second-best record in the NBA after Indiana (29-7) and leads Houston by 5 1/2 games in the Southwest division.
Green, 26, has averaged 7.4 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists over 37 games, 28 as a starter, for the Spurs this season. – Rappler.com
