Spurs captain Tim Duncan does not expect his sore left knee to keep him on the sidelines for long. The San Antonio Spurs played and won without him last night but the sooner he gets back on the court the better.
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.” The Spurs play at Dallas on Friday, and point guard Tony Parker hinted that Duncan won’t be available for that game. “We’re going to play without Timmy (against Dallas),” he said, “so we’re going to have to be ready.”
