Matt Bonner breaks handPosted by Inside Hoops
Mike Monroe of the San Antonio Express-News reports:
At some point late in the first quarter of Saturday’s Spurs-Pacers game at the AT&T Center, Matt Bonner broke the fourth metacarpal — the bone in the meaty part of the hand that leads to the ring finger — on his right hand.
X-rays taken at the arena showed a partial fracture, and the initial diagnosis does not appear to indicate a need for surgery to repair the bone. Bonner will be re-examined on Monday before a final timetable for his return is announced, but he is certain to miss a significant number of games. He is optimistic his hiatus will last no more than a month.
“It’s not broken all the way through, so it should heal itself in about four weeks,” he said. “That’s about it.”
