The Spurs have never missed the playoffs in consecutive seasons.
After having its 22-year playoff streak snapped last season, San Antonio (31-30, tied for eighth in the Western Conference) is right back in the postseason mix. The Spurs are probably headed for the play-in tournament.
But probably without Derrick White, who injured his ankle.
Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News:
In his first season since signing a four-year, $73 million contract extension (which begins next season), White had been acclimating to a larger role.
But his progress keeps getting interrupted. He has already missed 25 games this season, mostly with a toe injury but also due to coronavirus.
San Antonio will miss him.
With White: 117.9/111.9/+6.0
Without White: 100.8/106.7/-5.9
It’s on Spurs coach Gregg Popovich to keep tinkering in search of a new winning formula – which isn’t the worst situation down the stretch.
