I doubt it will make much of an effect on their success- he is just a bench player right? His minutes are very replaceable.




:D


Seriously though- big loss of he is gone for any significant time.

I think they'll be fine. They're still a solid team.

Depending on his time out.

I think this will effect the Spurs, maybe not as much as most teams if they lost one of their best players, but it will hurt.

It will probably affect them to a certain extent, but they've got other players more than capable of stepping up.

If he misses 2-3 months, I would imagine the Spurs will get him back around game 18-19, and be around 12-7. Takes him 15 games to get his rythm back, they are around 20-11. This may hurt their shot to win the west, but they will be fine. It may be a blessing in diguise, he will be rested, but could cost them if they don't have home court somewhere along the lines in the playoffs.

Depends on how long he is out. It was said that it will take 8 weeks to recover..but if he is out for a while, then it will hurt us alot.

how long will he be out? there's still some time until the beginning of the season.
I doubt he'll be out that long. but if he misses like 15+ games, the spurs will miss out on home court advantage for the playoffs.

I forgot they do play in the West so this could effect them majorly seeding wise.

Well the Spurs have proven they can win on the road, so homecourt advantage isnt absolutely neccessary..but to have it is nice no matter what.

I'm just hoping he doesnt miss a whole lot(if he doesn't get healthy by tipoff) because of how tough the West has become.
