Spurs captain Tim Duncan does not expect his sore left knee to keep him on the sidelines for long.
Duncan, who sat out Wednesday’s victory over the Hornets, said he fell on the knee during Monday’s 90-85 victory over the 76ers in Philadelphia. Though he was able to finish that game, he said the knee stiffened after a four-hour post-game flight back to San Antonio.
“It’s sore but I don’t think it’s serious,” Duncan said. “Maybe one more game, but we’ll see.”
If Duncan misses time, Tiago Splitter has been the fantasy player to gain the most value. During the teams 6 game win streak, Spiller is averaging nearly 15 points (on 81% shooting) and 8 rebounds. Even if Duncan is back soon, Splitter figures to be more involved as the season progresses and the Spurs prepare for the postseason.
