Spurs' Duncan out indefinitely with sprained ankle


San Antonio Spurs All-Star forward Tim Duncan has a sprained left ankle and there is no timeline for his return to the lineup, the NBA's first-placed team said on Tuesday.

Duncan, a two-time league most valuable player and 13-times All-Star, had an MRI on Tuesday that the team said showed no signs of structural damage.

The 34-year-old forward will not travel with the Spurs on their three-game road trip that ends on Sunday in Memphis and will receive daily treatment.

"We will have a better idea of what the timeline is probably in the next 48 hours but he won't travel on the trip," Spurs General Manager R.C. Buford told reporters.

Duncan suffered the injury early in San Antonio's win over the Golden State Warriors on Monday when he landed awkwardly on his left foot and collapsed to the court. He left the game and did not return.

The Spurs have a NBA-best 57-13 record with the help of the post presence of Duncan who is averaging 13.3 points and nine rebounds per game.

Duncan, who has won four NBA title with San Antonio, has played in all but one of his team's games this season, and an extended absence could be a major blow with the playoffs
approaching next month. - Reuters
