Diaw confident he’ll play Monday
By Nick Borges
Boris Diaw (cyst removed from his lower spinal cord) has improved his conditioning and fitness levels this week during practice and he expects to play in Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors on Monday.
“It’s been a process, getting back, staying in shape and being able to get the core back so I wouldn’t feel any pain,” Diaw told the San Antonio Express-News. “It’s been good so far. I think I’ll be ready. I’m playing five-on-five already, and we don’t play until Monday, so I should be good.”
Diaw started during the 2012 playoffs, but against Golden State is he will likely come off the bench.
