On Wednesday night, the San Antonio Spurs will go to New York City to face the Brooklyn Nets. A look at how to watch it online.
The San Antonio Spurs enter Wednesday night’s game on a down note. They fell to the formerly 11-31 Atlanta Hawks on Martin Luther King Day, arguably their worst defeat of the 2017-18 season. It highlighted road woes, too, as the Spurs have played better at home (19-2) than at other team’s venues (10-14). This disparity will look to trend in a positive direction vs. the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center.
The Silver and Black will not have multiple players, again — a common theme of this season. Rudy Gay (right heel bursitis) and Manu Ginobili (right thigh contusion) were ruled out. Pau Gasol (right wrist sprain) was listed as “questionable,” as of this writing.
However, look for Kawhi Leonard to play. The Spurs rested him vs. the Hawks for “return from injury management.” He should get the start and play heavy minutes, taking the burden off LaMarcus Aldridge, a potential member of the 2018 NBA All-Star Game. Expect Brandon Paul, Davis Bertans and Kyle Anderson to receive extra minutes as well, as long as the injury report remains the same.
Update: The Spurs shut down Leonard, according to MySanAntonio.com.
