Spurs Not Using Injuries as an Excuse
The Spurs were already down one starting small forward before they even walked into the AT&T Center on Monday night. Eleven minutes and nine seconds into the game against the Los Angeles Clippers, they lost another one.
Already absent Leonard to start the game — he’s out at least another six games with quadriceps tendinitis — the Spurs will be without Jackson for the next four-to-six weeks.
“Every team goes through injuries,” said point guard Tony Parker, who had 11 points and six assists. “We’re just going to have to have a lot of guys step up. Kawhi does a lot of stuff for us and Jack too, but we’re going to have to play without them.”
