With Tony Parker already back home nursing his latest injury, the Spurs survived a potentially season-altering incident when Tim Duncan collapsed to the floor clutching his right knee during the first quarter of Thursday’s 109-100 victory at Dallas.

Replays showed Duncan’s knee buckle while battling for a rebound, sending him spilling to the court in obvious pain. He limped back to the locker room with 5:58 remaining and the Spurs holding a 17-8 lead. Three minutes later, Duncan was back on the court and no worse for wear.

“It really wasn’t that bad,” Duncan said. “It just scared me more than anything.”
