The Spurs announced Wednesday that backup point guard T.J. Ford has suffered a longitudinal tear of his left hamstring and will miss 4-6 weeks.

The injury happened Tuesday in the first quarter against Milwaukee.

Not coincidentally, the Spurs recalled rookie Cory Joseph from their D-League affiliated, the Austin Toros. The Spurs are thin at point guard behind starter Tony Parker. Ford was off to a good start this season backing up Parker too. It's not a devastating blow, but another for the Spurs to deal with as Manu Ginobili is still out for a while with a broken hand.
