More on Lonnie Walker Injury

The comeback of Spurs rookie Lonnie Walker IV takes another step forward Sunday, with the team announcing he would be practicing with its G-League affiliate. Walker will work out with the Austin Spurs through Wednesday at the NBA club's practice facility in San Antonio. The Spurs are on the road until then, finishing a four-game trek in Chicago and Minnesota.
Spurs guard Lonnie Walker IV underwent an MRI examination this morning in San Antonio that revealed a right medial meniscus tear. The injury occurred at the 6:55 mark of the fourth quarter of last night’s Spurs-Pistons preseason game.
Jeff McDonald: Spurs say Lonnie Walker IV has torn the meniscus in his right knee and will have to undergo Monday to repair. He tore meniscus in the same knee last fall before his freshman season at Miami. Story to come.
Michael C. Wright: Per a source, Spurs first-round draft pick Lonnie Walker IV sprained an ankle and is out for the rest of summer league. Nothing major here. Just no need to push it at this juncture.

Young only played one game against the Bucks this season. He had a rough one in the 11-point loss to Milwaukee with 15 points on 3-of-17 from the field. He was 0-of-3 from deep and 9-of-9 from the free-throw line. Young also dished out nine assists but committed six turnovers. It was a forgettable game for the most part for Young and the Hawks. Milwaukee had Jrue Holiday defending Young, and we can expect a healthy dose of that in this series. Depending on which side you’re pulling for, it might be an unhealthy dose. We’ve seen Holiday dominate some of the best guards in the NBA with his defensive genius and commitment. In their one game against each other this season, Young shot 11 runners against the Bucks. That’s 11 of those vaunted runners mentioned above in those 17 total shot attempts. Young made just two of them. He made just one of them against Holiday with Brook Lopez often stepping up to defend him. For the most part, they looked like good, comfortable attempts by Young. He just didn’t make them.
