Tony Parker said after a light practice on Monday, "I feel fresh, I feel like I'm rested."
The Spurs gave Parker permission to skip the first few days of training camp while wrapping up loose ends in France, but he's back and ready to defend the championship. His restful offseason bodes well for his fantasy outlook, and with any luck he'll exceed both last season's minutes per game (29.4) and games played (68). Oct 1 - 10:57 AM

Tony Parker returned to practice on Monday morning.

He was expected to return on Sunday night from an excused absence, but his flight was delayed out of Chicago. Parker is entering the season healthy and should put up nice numbers as long as he's active. Fantasy owners can probably let him slide into the middle rounds before grabbing him.

Tony Parker has an excused absence from practice on Saturday.

He will join the team on Sunday evening and it's not believed to be injury related. Parker signed a three-year extension and it still seems strange that he's only 32 years old considering all he's been through in his career. He'll be a No. 2 point guard in fantasy leagues and should put up solid stats this season. Of course, his owners will have to be careful of coach Gregg Popovich resting him.

Gregg Popovich said that he's "worried" his Spurs players will "feel satisfied" after winning the 2013-14 championship.

It's hard to imagine Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and company being complacent after dismantling the Heat in the Finals, but Pop is already riling them up before training camp. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect many changes this season -- the Spurs' aging trio of stars will play conservative minutes with occasional DNP-CDs, and Pop will occasionally frustrate owners by spreading minutes evenly throughout his deep roster.

Updating a previous report, Tony Parker's extension with the Spurs is for three-years, at $43.3 million, according to Yahoo! sources.

Another star, another discount for San Antonio. The Spurs never seem to have any issues with re-signing their key guys, and Tony Parker is giving the organization yet another discount in exchange for continued success of the franchise. Parker still makes for a solid fantasy play, but the constant fear of random DNP-CD's knocks him out of the first-tier point guard pool.
Aug 1 - 3:23 PM

The Spurs announced on Friday that Tony Parker signed a multi-year extension.

The deal is reportedly in the ballpark of three-years, and $45 million. It feels like he's been in the NBA forever, but the 32-year-old guard still has a couple years left in his prime. Last season, he averaged 16.7 points, 5.7 assists and 2.3 rebounds. He'll be a PG2 in fantasy leagues due to the fear of coach Gregg Popovich possibly resting his star point guard.

Tony Parker is enjoying his first summer without basketball in four years, saying, "I felt like this was a summer I can give back to the Spurs."

Parker opted to skip the FIBA World Cup in order to rest, following a season in which his statistics dipped across the board and he missed six games due to general soreness. "I have to be smart. I think it’s the right decision for me, for the Spurs if I want to play a long career," Parker said. "I want to play two more summers [with France] and then I’ll be done."
Jul 30 - 9:20 AM

Tony Parker is hopeful that Pau Gasol will sign with the Spurs.

The Spurs are reportedly on the outskirts of the teams who are likely to land Gasol, but that hasn't stopped Parker from hoping his friend will join the NBA champs. "I'd love to play with Pau Gasol. If he doesn't choose us, we will go dinner and take a good wine as we always do," Parker said. Gasol would make an interesting addition to the defending champions and would have a good chance to maintain his fantasy value playing alongside Tim Duncan.

Tony Parker will not play for France during this summer's World Cup in Spain.

Parker is a reigning NBA champion and the 2013 European Player of the Year, but the 31-year-old will use the summer for rest and rejuvenation after a long year of basketball. This is terrific news for the Spurs, and for fantasy owners, as Parker's fatigue led to a relatively quiet 2013-14 season during which he picked up 14 DNPs and tied his career-low with 29.4 minutes per game.

Tony Parker missed his first eight shots on Sunday but he finished with 16 points to help the Spurs cruise to a Game 5 victory, earning Parker his fourth NBA championship.

LeBron James guarded Parker for much of the first half, sagging off him and daring him to shoot from the perimeter, and the Heat generally dove under screens involving the Spurs' speedy point guard. The defensive scheme worked initially, but in the end it didn't matter -- San Antonio's ball movement and stalwart defense led to a convincing 104-87 victory in front of a raucous home crowd.
Jun 15 - 11:34 PM

Tony Parker played 35 minutes in Thursday's 107-86 win to give the Spurs a 3-1 series lead over the Heat, scoring 19 points with two assists and four turnovers.

It's all just too easy. The Spurs shot 23-of-31 in the paint and 9-of-21 from beyond the arc. They have cut the fat on their bad shots and have kept their mid-range jumpers to a minimum. They became the first team since the Lakers in 2001 to have a lead of 20 points during consecutive NBA Finals games, and they did this all on the road. After putting up an astonishing 128.9 offensive efficiency rating in Game 3, they came up with a 127.6 tonight. It's not even fair anymore and the Spurs will look to get their fifth title on Sunday.
Jun 13 - 12:17 AM

Tony Parker (sprained ankle) scored 21 points and handed out seven assists during San Antonio's home loss on Sunday, but he took an elbow to the ribs in the fourth quarter.

Mario Chalmers was called for a Flagrant-1 foul on the play for intentionally winding up and elbowing Parker during a drive to the basket. The Spurs' All-NBA point guard missed the two subsequent free throws, but he sank a crucial 3-pointer late in the quarter and didn't seem overly bothered by the injury. We'll keep an eye on him in case his ankle or ribs give him any trouble prior to Tuesday's Game 3 in Miami.
Jun 8 - 11:34 PM

Tony Parker said his left ankle feels great and it loosened up in the second half of Game 1 on Thursday.

The time off obviously worked in Parker's favor and Game 2 coming on Sunday should also help. Parker carved up the Miami point guards and facilitated the Spurs offense in his 37 minutes during Game 1's win -- his second-highest total in the postseason. If the Spurs offense is as good as it was on Thursday and they keep their turnovers down, they're going to be extremely tough to beat.
Jun 6 - 1:51 PM

Tony Parker's ankle injury did not seem to bother him at all in Game 1's win over the Heat, as he scored 19 points with eight assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

When a team turns the ball over 23 times and still hangs 110 points, their offense has to be clicking. It certainly was for the Spurs on Thursday with a ridiculous effective field goal percentage of 68.4. The Heat did a decent job of forcing turnovers on entry passes into the paint -- a Spurs' bread-and-butter play -- but they didn't close on 3-point shooters whatsoever. Parker was successful on his floaters and his ankle injury clearly didn't bother him.
Jun 6 - 12:31 AM

Tony Parker (ankle) was able to participate in full-court drills during Wednesday's practice, and he and coach Gregg Popovich said he'll be "fine" for Game 1 on Thursday.

Parker has received treatment in lieu of practicing for the past few days, but he was cutting without difficulty and will be ready to go for Game 1. His ankle may not be 100 percent healthy, but it would take an unexpected setback to keep the Spurs' All-NBA guard off the court.
