SAN ANTONIO – The Spurs have revealed the timetable for Derrick White’s return to the lineup.

During his media availability prior to San Antonio’s road game against the Timberwolves on Saturday night, head coach Gregg Popovich said that White will likely miss the next four to six weeks due to injury. White fractured his left second toe during the Spurs’ game against the Lakers on Jan. 1, but the injury was not officially reported until three days later. The game marked his season debut, and looks to be his last until late February.

After successful surgery, White did not travel with the Spurs on this current road trip. Pop said that he is currently recovering at home. San Antonio will face Minnesota tonight at 7 p.m.
