The unusual measurements of the physique of Victor Wembanyama impose on the San Antonio Spurs extreme care, even in pre-game drills. So far the Frenchman, first overall call-up in the last Draft, had played 25 of his team’s 27 games, but tonight he missed the third: the derby against the Dallas Mavericks. It was all due to a snag in the warm-up: while he was getting ready Wembanyama accidentally stepped on the foot of a Mavs employee positioned under the basket..
The result was a sprained ankle, to be evaluated to what extent, that did not allow the Spurs star to participate in the game. Immediately after the incident, Wemby seemed more impatient than sore, and Gregg Popovich spoke of simple “pain.”.
