An MRI performed on Indians OF Michael Bourn confirms mild to moderate left hamstring strain. He is expected to be out 3-4 weeks.
Bourn was forced out of Saturday's game with the injury and it seems to be the same hamstring that he had surgery on last year and that has given him problems throughout this season. Tyler Holt has taken Bourn's spot on the roster. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
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
