Cory Joseph has become the first player this season to be recalled from an assignment to the D-League. Less than a week after sending him to the Austin Toros, the Spurs have recalled Joseph to help shore up a roster depleted by injuries. The team confirmed the move in a press release.
The D-League season doesn't get underway until later this week, so Joseph didn't get a chance to appear in a regular-season game for the Toros. The Spurs likely would have preferred to keep him in the D-League a little longer, but the team's hand was forced by injuries to Kawhi Leonard and Stephen Jackson. San Antonio also signed James Anderson to add some depth at small forward.
