Time for you massively important injury update of the week. Brace yourself, Red Rocket fans. I have some bad news.
The Spurs sharpshooting big man will miss 10-14 days with an ankle sprain. As the San Antonio Express-News reported, Bonner's right ankle had swelled to the size of a baseball and he was quite eager to show everyone.
Bonner said: “Pretty ugly, don’t you think? I came down on somebody’s foot. That’s what I get for jumping."
Yeah, stick to the outside shooting if you know what's good for you. Since when did you think you could jump?
Bonner of course is one of the Spurs most underrated bench weapons. He's deadly on kickouts from Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili and is actually a better post defender than people realize. The Spurs are hurting a bit on the inside right now as Tiago Splitter isn't fully ready for his debut so Tim Duncan and Antonio McDyess will likely be playing more minutes than usual, as well as DeJuan Blair.
