San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said Friday that point guard Derrick White will miss six to eight weeks with a heel injury, according to Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News.

Popovich's announcement came two days after he named White his starting point guard.

White had been tabbed by Popovich to take over for Dejounte Murray, who suffered a season-ending torn ACL Sunday.

San Antonio selected White with the No. 29 overall pick in the first round of the 2017 NBA draft.
