Injury bug bites guard corps yet again as White expected to miss 6-8 weeks


According to San Antonio Express-News beat writer Jeff McDonald, the Spurs’ thinning guard rotation is getting even thinner, with Derrick White being sidelined with a heel injury.

To recap, the Spurs have lost rookie Lonnie Walker IV to a meniscus injury for six to eight weeks, Dejounte Murray likely for the remainder of the season, and his replacement at starting point guard will now be out six to eight weeks.

It’s been a rough start for Spurs guards to say the least. The Spurs reportedly had no intention to sign a free agent point guard after the Murray injury, but this may force their hand as the only point guards remaining on the roster are Patty Mills and Nick Johnson, and Johnson has never been a lock to make the opening day roster.
