Blair has sprained wrist, but so what?

An MRI conducted Sunday morning confirmed Spurs center DeJuan Blair has a sprained left wrist, but it is not expected to keep him out of Monday’s game against Golden State.

Blair suffered the injury at some point during the first half of Saturday’s victory over Charlotte, but wasn’t immediately sure after the game how  it happened. The team’s medical staff examined Blair in the locker room and he played sparingly in the second half of a blowout, returning with his injured wrist heavily taped.

A starter for the first 63 games of the season, Blair is averaging 8.1 points and 6.8 rebounds. In six games since shifting to the  bench in favor of Antonio McDyess, Blair is averaging 7.3 points and 5.7 rebounds in 14:48 per game.
