MVP Duncan returns from injured list for Spurs

San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) – San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan
returned from the injured list to score nine points in 15 minutes Wednesday in
a 108-90 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

The league’s reigning MVP missed six games with an irritation of the
patellofemoral joint just above his left knee. The Spurs were 4-2 without him.

“It felt good to get up and down the court,” said Duncan.

Duncan was eligible to return on Tuesday, but sat out San Antonio’s 94-88 road
loss to the Memphis Grizzlies

Entering Wednesday’s action, Duncan was averaging 23.2 points and 13.0
rebounds over 54 games this season, both team-highs.

To make room for Duncan on the active roster, the Spurs placed guard Matt
Carroll on the injured list with left patella tendinitis.
