This injury is not new for him, as White had an offseason surgery on the same toe, but the Spurs revealed the fracture is a new injury.
OFFICIAL: Derrick White has suffered a non-displaced fracture of the proximal phalanx of his left second toe. The injury occurred after White fell at the 3:33 mark in the second quarter of the Spurs-Lakers game on Jan. 1. pic.twitter.com/HHviduUiDh— San Antonio Spurs (@spurs) January 5, 2021
The four-year veteran, who signed an extension with the organization during the offseason, was the 29th pick in the 2017 draft out of Colorado.
White averaged a career-high 11.3 points last season along with 3.5 assists. In seven games after the restart, White averaged 18.9 points, 5.0 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 29.8 minutes.
While he recovers, DeJounte Murray, Patty Mills and rookie, Tre Jones are expected to play a significant larger role in Gregg Popovich's rotation.
