SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Spurs forward Richard Jefferson could miss the start of training camp after dislocating his right thumb.
Jefferson was injured Tuesday while working out at the Spurs' practice facility. X-rays were negative, and the 29-year-old swingman is expected to be re-examined next week.
The Spurs called the injury minor. Training camp begins Sept. 29.
Jefferson was the marquee addition in a busy offseason for San Antonio, coming to the Spurs in a four-player deal with Milwaukee. He has not missed a game the past two seasons.
