Spurs doctors sent Boris Diaw for an MRI on what they thought was a lower back strain last week and were surprised to find the real culprit for the French forward’s pain — a small cyst pressing against the base of his spine. Diaw had surgery to remove the synovial cyst, just a few centimeters in diameter, and is expected to miss three to four weeks, including the start of the playoffs. “Very strange,” said point guard Tony Parker, Diaw’s best friend on the team. “It looked like he was fine. Then they said surgery. I’m like, ‘Surgery, what?’ Everybody was shocked.” San Antonio Express-News
