                 === Spurs' Duncan, Popovich out for Friday ===
 
 San  Antonio,  TX (Sports Network) -  San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan and
 head  coach Gregg Popovich did not travel with the team to Dallas on Thursday,
 leaving them unavailable for Friday's matchup with the Mavericks.
 
 Duncan is nursing a sore left knee that has forced him to miss two of the last
 three  games,  while Popovich  will miss  his second  straight contest with an
 illness.
 
 Coach  Mike  Budenholzer, who guided  the Spurs to  a 106-102 victory over New
 Orleans on Wednesday, will lead the team in Popovich's absence.
 
 The  36-year-old Duncan is averaging 17.5 points and 9.8 rebounds per game and
 has the Spurs sitting atop the Southwest Division with a 34-11 mark.
