The (19-6) Blazers continue to roll, beating the visiting San Antonio Spurs handily 108-95 Monday night.

It came at a cost, however.

Center Robin Lopez broke his right hand going for a rebound in the third quarter, and is reportedly expected to miss up to four weeks. The big fella is averaging 9.6 points and 7.2 rebounds.

Per The Columbian:

“I haven’t seen the play,” said Lopez, with a cast covering his right hand. “I think it’s a couple of fractures.”

 

Lopez said he thought he jammed his finger before determining he was a liability on the court and asked out of the game. While he thinks there could be multiple fractures, he will be re-evaluated Tuesday.

 

“I don’t like it,” said LaMarcus Aldridge, who finished with 23 points and 14 rebounds. […] “With him out tonight and going forward, other people, whether it’s Thomas (Robinson) or Joel (Freeland) or Meyers (Leonard) or Dorell (Wright), we have to pick up the slack while he’s gone,” Stotts said.
