Spurs: Report on Popovich leaving team bus with chest pains inaccurate

Coach Popovich boarded team charter for Charlotte Tuesday night


SAN ANTONIO – Don't worry, Spurs fans, Coach Pop is just fine.

Comcast Sports Network out of Washington, D.C., tweeted late Tuesday night Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich left the team bus with chest pains.  

At least one source with the Spurs told KSAT-12 Sports that report was inaccurate. There was apparently a very minor issue, but Pop was fine.  

He was on the private charter with the rest of the team scheduled to fly to Charlotte for the Spurs next game against the Hornets Wednesday night.   

Popovich and the Spurs had been in Washington to play the Wizards. The Spurs lost, 101-93.
