Found January 07, 2013 on Project Spurs:
There's some good news for San Antonio Spurs 2012 NBA draftee guard Marcus Denmon and his road to recovery from foot surgery. As you may recall, Denmon broke his right foot in the opening game for French team Chalon-Elan. He underwent surgery to repair his broken right foot where a metal rod was placed in his foot to strengthen it and to avoid further injury. According to French site Le Journal, Denmon's rehab is going great and the boot to protect his repaired foot is off and could be back on the practice court for Chalon in the near future. "He's happy as a kid," laughs (Chalon coach) Gregor Beugnot who is hopeful that the American will be able to resume group training January 7 with the rest of the team.  Morover, according Le Journal, Denmon could be back on the court in two weeks once the Spurs' medical staff approves. "This is part of his treatment protocol" said Beugnot. Project Spurs reported the Spurs were keeping a watchful eye on Denmon's growth and Chalon coach Beugnot spoke highly of his development. Also according to the report, Denmon was in San Antonio late last month for some medical testing before traveling back to France. Denmon also posted a photo via Twitter celebrating he now can put two shoes on rather than having the protective boot. It feels good to have on two shoes again!! instagr.am/p/TdYK15Hk9N/ — Marcus Denmon (@MizzouMonster12) December 20, 2012

Gregg Popovich thinks food and drinks shouldn’t be ordered court-side during games

Gregg Popovich doesn’t like many things. He doesn’t like using the word “Happy” during basketball games. He doesn’t like that there is a 3-point line.

Especially since Stephen Jackson was injured after running into a waitress taking an order for food and drinks court-side in New...

Spurs-Hornets Preview

The San Antonio Spurs appeared to solve their recent road struggles with back-to-back wins away from home, but a lopsided loss to finish their most recent trip could be cause for concern.
