MIAMI (AP) – The San Antonio Spurs do not expect starting guard Derrick White back this season because of a sprained right ankle, coach Gregg Popovich said Wednesday. White was injured in the Spurs’ win in Washington on Monday. The fourth-year guard is averaging a career-best 15.4 points for San Antonio, which played 18 of its first 19 games this season without White because of a toe injury.
“You can imagine, his spirits are not high,” Popovich said.
“When he gets minutes, he’s played well,” Popovich said of Vassell.
