Tim DuncanThe San Antonio Spurs announced that Tim Duncan will be day-to-day with a chest contusion. 

Duncan, doubtful for tomorrow's game against the Los Angeles Lakers, traveled with the team on their three-game west coast road trip. The Spurs are slated to play in Portland on Saturday and Denver on Tuesday. The 17-year-veteran collided with Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard Tony Allen in the third quarter. He left the game, and Memphis outscored the Spurs by 10 points in the final 21 minutes of the game to cut the final margin to seven points. 

San Antonio is 13-8 in the past two seasons without Duncan in the lineup.
