Duncan hurt in game
San Antonio Spurs All-Star Tim Duncan injured his left knee and had to be helped off the court in the first half of Saturday night’s game against the Wizards.
The severity of the injury was unknown.
Duncan lay on the court clutching his knee for a few minutes after Washington forward Martell Webster rolled into the back of it while fighting for a rebound. Duncan got up on his own, but limped to the locker room with the assistance of teammates Stephen Jackson and DeJuan Blair.
Pargo gets more days
The Atlanta Hawks signed guard Jannero Pargo to a second 10-day contract.
In five games since signing with the team Jan. 21, Pargo has averaged 5.2 points and 2.6 assists. The Hawks announced the second 10-day deal before Saturday night’s game against the Chicago Bulls.
Pargo played seven games earlier this season with Washington.
The Hawks signed Pargo last month after they lost guard Lou Williams for the season and another guard, Devin Harris, sprained his left ankle. Harris has returned, but Pargo, a nine-year veteran, is still needed as a backup.
