San Antonio Spurs point guard and towel-waving expert Patty Mills is out for the rest of the NBA Finals after foot surgery.
“Mills had an infection in his right foot and, in turn, an abscess developed between his fourth and fifth toes,” the Spurs said in a news release. “The abscess was removed during a short out-patient surgery on Friday afternoon.”
The unusual injury means Nando De Colo will be active on the Spurs’ roster going forward, as the Finals are even at 2-2 entering Sunday’s Game 5.
Mills’ role has been small during the playoffs, as the team’s third- or fourth-string point guard behind Tony Parker, Cory Joseph and combo guard Gary Neal. He has played nine postseason games, averaging 3.4 minutes and 1.3 points. He did see extended time in the fourth quarter of blowouts in Games 2 and 3 of the Finals, totaling 14 minutes and scoring four points on 2-for-5 shooting.
