Spurs' Elson Hurts Eye, Will Have Surgery

SAN ANTONIO -- San Antonio Spurs center Francisco Elson injured his left eye during a game this summer and will have surgery in the coming week.

Elson suffered a "blowout fracture" of his left eye orbit during a game against Belarus on Aug. 19 while playing for the Dutch national team, the Spurs said.

Elson should be cleared for full-contact play by mid- to late September but will have to wear a protective face mask during the upcoming NBA season.
