It's been reported that shooting guard Danny Green, who left the game against Minnesota on Sunday, has a non-displaced broken finger on his non-shooting hand. Here's what the Spurs' injury report says:

SAN ANTONIO - Spurs guard Danny Green underwent an exam on Monday in San Antonio that included both an X-ray and an MRI on his left hand. Results revealed he has a nondisplaced fracture of his second metacarpal. Green suffered the injury in the first half of the Spurs-Timberwolves game on Sunday night. He is expected to miss approximately four weeks

The outlook is a bit worse than what Green had tweeted earlier today:

With Splitter (shoulder) and Ginobili (hamstring) both out, Green will be the third major rotation player that San Antonio will be without tonight against New Orleans and beyond. The shooting guard position is now growing thin for the Silver and Black, and guys like Marco Belinelli and Kawhi Leonard, as well as members of the supporting cast, will be counted on to step up even more.

The good news, beyond the fact that the Pelicans are pretty banged up as well, is that the injury is to his left finger, which means his shot should return to normal (whatever that's been for Green so far this year) once he's back.
