The San Antonio Spurs will face the Utah Jazz on Saturday night. Who will not play in this game? Was there a new name featured?
On Saturday night, the San Antonio Spurs will host the Utah Jazz as part of their homestand at the AT&T Center. It will be the first game since Thursday’s loss to the Houston Rockets, 102-91, which featured a slew of 3-pointers from the opposition that extended the lead early and kept it open for the rest of the matchup.
Injuries have provided hardships for the Spurs in the 2017-18 season, something that’s well documented. Two or three players are often on the official report, whether it’s Kawhi Leonard, Pau Gasol, Danny Green or almost anyone else.
Before Saturday’s game, the Silver and Black announced the official injury report. It featured Leonard (return from injury management), Rudy Gay (right heel bursitis) and Brandon Paul (back spasms. Leonard and Gay will not play, while Paul remains “questionable” to appear.

Paul was the only new name added to the injury report. However, given his lack of minutes, his potential absence may not provide a noticeable impact vs. the Jazz.
As for Leonard and Gay, it’s the same, usual thing. These players have not played for most of the past month (Leonard), if not all of it (Gay). When these two return remains to be seen, so the team will continue to carry on without them.
The Spurs and Jazz will go head to head at 9:00 p.m. ET on KENS and ATRM.
