Tim Duncan will be sidelined at least two weeks because of a sprained right ankle and could miss the rest of the regular season.
The San Antonio Spurs placed the two-time MVP on the injured list Monday following an MRI exam. He flew home to San Antonio on Sunday to begin
treatment while the rest of the team went to New York for Monday night's game against the Knicks.
The Spurs activated forward-center Sean Marks from the injured list to take Duncan's roster slot. Robert Horry started in Duncan's place against the
Duncan -- the Spurs' leading scorer, rebounder and shot blocker -- crumpled to the floor in the opening minutes of a 110-101 loss to Detroit on Sunday
after scoring inside and coming down on Rasheed Wallace's foot. After the landing, Duncan's ankle turned in a gruesome fashion.
The 7-footer missed two games earlier this month with a sprained right ankle.
We'll see if the Spurs can hang on to one of the top 2 spots in the Western conference playoffs. Obviously, Timmy is the heart and soul of that Spurs
team and they're a totally different team without him.
