You can now resume breathing: Tim's gonna be okay.

Here's the good news, per this injury update:

Spurs forward Tim Duncan underwent a CT scan this morning in San Antonio which confirmed that he has a chest contusion. He suffered the injury during the third quarter of last night's Spurs-Grizzlies game. His status is day-to-day and he is listed as doubtful for Friday night's Spurs-Lakers game. Duncan will travel with the team this afternoon when the Spurs depart for a three-game trip that begins in Los Angeles.

Nice to know we can put the fears to rest and look forward to seeing Big Fun back on the court in the very near future.
