Spurs send Walker to G League

Updated: 26-11-2018 01:25 IST

The San Antonio Spurs have assigned first-round draft pick Lonnie Walker to the NBA G League, his first step back from a right medial meniscus tear.

He will play with the Austin Spurs, who are scheduled to practice in San Antonio from Sunday through Wednesday, the team said.

Walker sustained the injury on Oct. 5 in a preseason game against Detroit. He underwent surgery days later and was expected to miss six to eight weeks.

The Spurs made Walker, a Miami product, the No. 18 overall pick in the NBA draft in June. He turns 20 next month.
