RJ Has a Dislocated Thumb

by September 16, 2009

Jefferson’s thumb injury could force him to miss the start of training camp: “The injury is not considered serious, and the Spurs are expecting Jefferson’s absence to be measured in weeks, not months. Still, it remains unclear whether he will be a full participant when the Spurs open camp Sept. 29. X-rays taken of Jefferson’s thumb showed no bone or ligament damage. He is set to be re-evaluated next week, at which point the team will establish a firmer timetable for Jefferson to return to basketball activities.”
