Yasiel Puig (hip) left Friday's game after the top of the 8th inning.
Puig limped off the field after flying out in the top of the 8th Friday and did not go back out into the field in the bottom half of the inning as he continues to be bothered by a sore hip he sustained a couple weeks ago. Puig is listed as day-to-day with a mild left hip muscle strain and could miss at least Saturday's game, but that decision will not be made until closer to game time so be sure to check our MLB Lineups page before their 10:10 pm ET start time Saturday.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Tim Duncan (rest) will not play Friday against Denver.
The Spurs will take advantage of the holiday and give Duncan an extra day of rest and get ready for Saturday against the Hawks. The Spurs could go with LaMarcus Aldridge at center for Friday and use David West at power forward or they could just give Boris Diaw the start. Either way, those are the three players likely to see the extra work in Duncan's absence. Analysis: Howard Bender
