Villanueva day-to-day with back spasms
Villanueva missed Sunday’s loss to Orlando because of back spasms and is questionable for Tuesday’s game at New Jersey.
“It’s a little better, but it’s still bothering me to bend down and what not,” Villanueva said Monday. “Hopefully tomorrow I’ll give it another try and see where it stands.”
Villanueva is unsure how the injury occurred, but said it had been bothering him for a couple days before he woke up Sunday in a lot of pain.
Monday Villanueva was using steam and massages to treat the injury and had it wrapped to keep it tight.
Villanueva admitted all the injuries this season have been frustrating for him, but he doesn’t expect to miss much time with the latest set back.
“This is something that’s not going to keep me out for a long time. I know that,” Villanueva said. “I’m just going to take it day by day and see where I’m at, but it’s not going to be long.”
