Spurs' Duncan, Leonard to sit out vs. Wolves


Posted Mar 12, 2013 2:05 PM

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- The San Antonio Spurs will play without forwards Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night.

Neither traveled with the Spurs following a 105-93 home win over Oklahoma City on Monday night in a meeting of the top teams in the Western Conference. Both Leonard and Duncan played 35 minutes apiece and are diagnosed with sore left knees.

Staying home means the Spurs will face the Timberwolves down three starters. All-Star Tony Parker is still expected to miss another three weeks while recovering from a sprained left ankle.

The Spurs return home Thursday to play Dallas.
