MVP Duncan sits against Warriors

San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) – San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan missed
Friday’s game against the Golden State Warriors as he continues rehabilitation
on his left knee.

The Spurs still managed to rout the Warriors, 99-74, as they had seven players
finish in double figures. Kevin Willis even came off the bench to score 16
points and grab seven rebounds to help ease the loss of Duncan.

Duncan, who returned from the injured list to score nine points in 15
minutes Wednesday in a 108-90 win over the Los Angeles Clippers, is listed as
probable for San Antonio’s game against Sacramento on Sunday.

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

Duncan is averaging 22.9 points and 12.8 rebounds over 55 games this season,
both team highs.
