Lonnie Walker IV is dealing with a wrist injury.

The San Antonio Spurs guard has missed three games with what's described as "soreness" and is expected to miss more time.

How's his recovery going?

"Slowly but surely," head coach Gregg Popovich said Saturday. "I'm thinking another week or so."

'Rest up, Lonnie'

One Spurs fan site is taking the news particularly hard. Spurs Nation posted a well-made Twitter graphic on Saturday featuring a somber-looking Walker captioned "let's all wish Lonnie Walker IV a speedy recovery." The tweet also included the ubiquitous "prayers up" emoji. Or is it a high-five? We're guessing in this case, it's prayers.
