Rob Gronkowski is doing some light team work with the quarterbacks and skill players in the skeleton drills.
So at least he's out there doing something, right? We're probably at the point where no one cares what Gronkowski is doing at practice anymore as the only question on everyone's mind is, "when will he play in a game?" No one wants to hear that he's doing a light workout. No one wants to hear he's practicing drills with quarterbacks. Is he going to play or not and the unfortunate answer to that question is...maybe? Probably not? We hope? The fact that it's now been leaked that he's 50/50 for Week 1 probably takes him out of the equation for that week.How many more weeks he misses is still a guess. The only thing we can say for sure is that if you haven't drafted your fantasy team yet, using a third round pick on Gronk is likely to be a mistake.ANALYST: Howard Bender
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
