San Antonio Spurs guard Derrick White out indefinitely

White’s season hits a speed bump

The San Antonio Spurs will be without guard Derrick White indefinitely after he suffered a fractured right wrist.

White was injured during Saturday’s G-League game between the Austin Spurs and Texas Legends, per an announcement from the San Antonio Spurs on Monday.

The former Buffs guard was selected in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft (No. 29 overall) by the San Antonio. In his lone season at Colorado, White averaged 18.3 points, 4.4 assists and 4.1 rebounds and earned the honor of First Team All-Pac-12. He transferred to Boulder after starting his career at Colorado-Colorado Springs (Div. II).

White has only played four games in San Antonio and he was limited to 21 combined minutes, exclusively in garbage time. He’s 0-2 from the field this season, but he did convert a free throw in a 27-points loss to the Orlando Magic.

White was assigned to the G League on November 4th and played his game that night. Unfortunately, he played only 15 minutes before suffering the injury, and because the world is cruel, White was replaced in the game by former Arizona star Nick Johnson.

Best of luck to White in his recovery. Basketball isn’t as fun with him on the bench.
