During the San Antonio Spurs recent two-point win over the Memphis Grizzlies, center Pau Gasol suffered a shoulder injury after a collision with brother Marc Gasol.

Spurs' Tony Parker spoke about Gasol's injury following the game on Pau's injury.


"He hurt his shoulder, and he told me it was bad," Parker said.
"We will see, but I'm pretty sure he's not going to play against Golden State."

As Parker mentioned, San Antonio now heads to take on the Warriors with an already depleted roster.

As of now, Spurs' Kawhi Leonard remains on the injured list though is expected to return to the court this month.

In addition, Rudy Gay suffered an ear injury versus Memphis.

In other injury news, Spurs forward Rudy Gay suffered what he called an injury to his left eardrum in the first half. Gay immediately left the floor and headed to the locker room with a member of the Spurs medical staff.

This recent visit by the injury bug just sums up the season San Antonio has been dealing with. The team has used 22 different lineups this season and will likely continue to shuffle their lineup as the season winds down.

In 23 minutes, Pau finished with two points, four assists and seven rebounds. Gay finished with seven points in 14 minutes.
