Spurs’ White out 6-8 weeks

Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - SCOREBOARD -

San An­to­nio point guard Der­rick White will miss six to eight weeks af­ter in­jur­ing his left heel in his first game as a starter since re­plac­ing De­jounte Mur­ray, who was lost for the sea­son with a torn ACL.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich an­nounced dur­ing Fri­day’s shootaround that the sec­ond-year guard will be out for up to two months. White was al­ready ruled out of the pre­sea­son fi­nale on Fri­day with the Or­lando Magic.

White in­jured his heel dur­ing San An­to­nio’s 130127 pre­sea­son loss to At­lanta on Wed­nes­day.

White’s in­jury caps an in­jury-filled week for the re­vamped back­court. The Spurs lost Mur­ray to sea­so­nend­ing surgery af­ter his knee buck­led Sun­day against Hous­ton. Rookie Lon­nie Walker IV will miss at least six weeks af­ter sus­tain­ing a knee in­jury last Fri­day.
