Tim Duncan's father passed away in North Carolina Monday night.

William Duncan, the father of Wake Forest star basketball player Tim Duncan, passed away in North Carolina Monday.

Duncan left his practice early on Monday to head to North Carolina after hearing of his father being hospitalized. Duncan's father died later on Monday.

The late William Duncan, often seen watching Tim at Wake Forest, was a man who always had a smile on his face. Our thoughts and prayers are with Tim and his family.

Although basketball is secondary in this story, Tim will miss game four of the Spurs' NBA Playoffs series with the Seattle Supersonics on Wednesday.
