(Audio) Spurs vs. Portland Pregame Report: Leonard, Parker, Batum, Lopez out

AT&T CENTER – After falling in their last two games, the San Antonio Spurs (17-9) are looking to rebound with a win Friday evening against the visiting Portland Trail Blazers (20-6). Both teams will be without some of their core players, as Tony Parker (left hamstring) and Kawhi Leonard (right hand) will be out for San Antonio, while Robin Lopez (right hand fracture) and Nicolas Batum (right wrist/left knee) will be out for Portland.

After Wednesday’s triple-overtime thriller between the Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies, Popovich confirmed that Tim Duncan and the rest of the group is expected to play, despite the increase of minutes most of the core players played on Wednesday.

In the audio pregame report, I spoke about some of the key topics from Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich’s pregame media session, including the latest on Leonard and Parker’s injuries, Popovich’s “no thoughts” comment on the Rajon Rondo trade, and I also spoke with a few players like Kyle Anderson on his post play and Tiago Splitter, on how his calf is feeling thus far.

Spurscast 347: Checking it Twice…

Happy Holidays to you and yours! Have you been good this year? The San Antonio Spurs have… sorta. San Antonio, currently sitting at 17-9, is still reeling from their fourth loss within their previous six games. Some healthy players would be great but the Spurs better hope Santa delivers on some much needed passion.

The remainder of the 2014 schedule for San Antonio is a gauntlet of doom. The next eight teams feature seven currently seeded for the Western Conference playoffs. That other team is the surging Oklahoma City Thunder. On top of that, the Dallas Mavericks just traded for Rajon Rando (Spurs and Mavericks meet on December 20th).

Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) also look back at the wild finish between the Spurs and the visiting Memphis Grizzlies plus the insanity that is the Western Conference. Guest Benjamin Bornstein (@THE_BOOMSTEIN) of Project Spurs joins the fun.
