Tim Duncan will not play against the Eastern Conference leading Cleveland Cavaliers. The Spurs all-time great has missed three of the last four for San Antonio, including the much-hyped slaughter at the hands of the Golden State Warriors.

According to ESPN, Duncan had an MRI scheduled Wednesday; Coach Gregg Popovich has not given a timetable of the Big Fundamental's return.

Duncan has averaged 8.9 points and 7.5 rebounds this season -- both career lows as he's focused on defense: he is leading the league in defensive real plus minus.
