Former Tar Heel Danny Green to miss four weeks with fractured hand

Former North Carolina star guard “Dancing” Danny Green has been injured with a fractured left hand and could miss up to the next four weeks of the season.

On Sunday, the San Antonio Spurs were playing the Minnesota Timberwolves when Green was injured and initially diagnosed with a sprained finger. He only played one minute in the second quarter before he would leave the game for good.

Despite shooting 38.4 percent from behind the line this season, it hasn’t been Green’s best season in terms of long range shots.

Green has be rotated in the starting lineup and played from the bench this season as Popovich has tried everything he can to jump start the San Antonio offense. He has played an average of 22.4 minutes per game so far this season and averaging 7.4 points per game with 3 rebounds per game.

Should Green recover from his injury on time it appears he should return to the Spurs in time to play the Boston Celtics on February 12th or the Los Angeles Lakers on February 18th.
