Rudy Gay suffers a right heel injury in the second half and heads to the locker room.

Rudy Gay will be out at least two weeks with a right heel injury, the team announced.

"Spurs forward Rudy Gay underwent an MRI examination this morning in San Antonio. The exam revealed that Gay has right retrocalcaneal bursitis. He has started a rest and rehabilitation program and will be re-evaluated in two weeks."

The 12-year veteran suffered the injury when coming down from a contested shot near the basket. He finished with six points and seven rebounds in the Spurs' 119-107 win.

Gay missed the second half of last season with Sacramento after tearing his left Achilles tendon in January. He joined San Antonio in the offseason and has averaged 11.6 points and 5.1 rebounds in 33 games.
