Shane Battier is going to miss a week of practice after pulling a muscle, according to the Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen. Since it's still early October, Battier will take it easy:
"I was pretty disappointed last night," Battier said. "I got home and told my wife I'll see here tomorrow and locked myself in my room. I want to be out here with these guys and playing. I don't think it's too severe of a pull. ...
"It's not something I want lingering. It's not worth rushing back to where I'll have to deal with it the rest of the season."
