SAN ANTONIO -- Spurs reserve Matt Bonner broke a bone in his right hand during the first quarter Saturday against Indiana and will not return.
It is the fourth metacarpal -- the bone leading up to the ring finger in Bonner's shooting hand -- and the injury will be examined again on Monday. At that point the Spurs will decide how long Bonner will miss.
Bonner, who has five starts this season, is eighth in the league in 3-point shooting with a .449 percentage (40-for-89). On Saturday against Indiana, Bonner played almost five minutes off the bench and scored seven points on 3-for-4 shooting. He made one of his two 3-point attempts.
Indiana also lost Jeff Foster for the game when he again experienced soreness in his lower back in the first quarter. Foster, who missed Wednesday's game against Charlotte because of the back, played three minutes before coming out.
