According to a report, the San Antonio Spurs have cleared forward Davis Bertans to continue to play for Team Latvia at EuroBasket 2017 after suffering a finger injury in a game versus Serbia. Bertans did not suit up for the team’s game against Belgium and was held back as a precautionary move. After suffering the injury, he did say he was not in any pain and X-rays showed no break.
Davis Bertans suffered a finger injury in Latvia's loss to Serbia in pool play. X-rays revealed no break and he is not feeling pain. He sat out of the team's 92-64 win versus Belgium. Q. Are you going to be available for next week? Bertans: I don't know, that's a question for the doctor. I'm not a doctor so I can't really answer that. Tomorrow is the day off and then we'll see."
Reports go on to say he did not suffer a break after x-rays were conducted and he's not feeling any pain. "I'm waiting for what the doctor will say, it's hard to say because I have not had the ball in the hands since Friday, but I do not feel pain. We have a morning off, and we will see what we can do. There was a X-ray, nothing broken."

When the Spurs open training camp next week, they will do so with arguably their best player on the shelf. Keldon Johnson is expected to miss at least the start of the team’s preseason slate with a dislocated right shoulder. He suffered the injury during an open gym scrimmage at the team’s practice facility.
Anthony Slater: Andre Iguodala wasn’t at practice today and won’t be tomorrow. Steve Kerr said Iguodala planned on retirement and had prior plans this weekend, but team made a “last minute” push to get him back. He will be at practice on Monday.
Madeline Kenney: Andre Iguodala wasn’t at practice today and will miss tomorrow for personal reasons. But on what he brings, Steve Kerr said: “His presence is going to mean the world to us. We have so many young guys that the more mentoring and coaching from within our team the better.”
Kendra Andrews: Steve Kerr said the first day of camp was a “heavy load” day. Kerr specifically named Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Kevon Looney as stand outs, but said all of the starters from last year’s team “dominated.”
