Tony Parker (quad) told L’Equipe that he plans to make his return in January.
"I will play my best basketball when I return in January," he said. This confirms that Parker is expecting an eight month recovery after undergoing surgery to repair his ruptured left quadriceps, meaning he could miss the first couple months of the 2017-18 season. He will likely have heavy restrictions upon his return with plenty of maintenance days mixed in, so the 35-year-old veteran won't be a recommended fantasy asset next season. With Patty Mills hitting free agency, Dejounte Murray could open the season as the starting PG. May 29 - 11:51 AM

Tony Parker (quad) could miss up to eight months after undergoing surgery to repair his ruptured left quadriceps tendon on Friday.

According to Dr. Josh Bell, a San Antonio orthopedist, "In four to six months, you can usually return to some activity. But that’s not basketball." In typical cases, it could take eight months or longer to recover fully. At this point, it appears doubtful that Parker will be healthy by training camp and may miss the start of the 2017-18 season. Factoring in his age and declining production, in addition to this serious injury, Parker is a player to avoid in fantasy drafts next season.
May 6 - 9:18 AM

The Spurs announced on Friday that Tony Parker underwent successful surgery to repair his ruptured left quadriceps tendon.

Parker had already been ruled out for the rest of the postseason. The Spurs said a timeline for Parker’s return would be determined at a later day. Coach Gregg Popovich told reporters Friday morning that he is undecided about who will start at point guard for the Spurs in Game 3, but Patty Mills is expected to be the most significant increase in playing time and production.

The Spurs announced that Tony Parker will miss the rest of the postseason with a ruptured left quadriceps tendon.

A timetable for his return will be announced at a "later date." This is a brutal blow for the Spurs as Parker really came alive in the playoffs after a quiet regular season, averaging 15.9 points, 3.1 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.4 triples on 52.6 percent shooting through eight games. The 34-year-old veteran has one more year left on his deal worth $15.4 million. Patty Mills, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard will all take on more playmaking responsibilities in the absence of Parker, while we could see more of rookie PG Dejounte Murray.
May 4 - 12:35 PM

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Spurs expect Tony Parker (left leg) to undergo season-ending surgery.

This isn't a total surprise based on the comments from Parker's teammates and coach Gregg Popovich after Game 2. Parker is still undergoing an MRI on his left leg, and while the diagnosis is still unclear, we should have an update very soon.
May 4 - 10:51 AM

Tony Parker will undergo an MRI on his left leg on Thursday.

After being carried off the floor in Game 2 vs. Houston on Wednesday, the Spurs diagnosed Parker with a "left leg injury." It sounds like he's in danger of missing a lot of time, as coach Gregg Popovich said "it doesn't look good" and Manu Ginobili said the Spurs aren't "going to see him any time soon." Patty Mills should take on a larger role for the Spurs going forward, while we could see more of Ginobili and Dejounte Murray.
May 4 - 9:52 AM

Tony Parker didn't return after injuring his left knee in the fourth quarter of Game 2 on Wednesday, finishing with 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting, two 3-pointers, four assists, three rebounds and zero turnovers in 26 minutes.

Parker landed awkwardly after taking a shot in the paint. He was carried off the court after the injury and we can only hope that it was a hyperextension that won't cost him much time. Patty Mills would likely start if Parker misses any time, Manu Ginobili would gain extra ball-handling duties, and Dejounte Murray could be pushed into the rotation. Stay tuned.
May 4 - 12:26 AM

Tony Parker made 11-of-14 from the field for 27 points with two rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

It was classic Parker. He made all four free throws to give him an 85.7 true shooting percentage, including three field goal makes in the final two minutes to help the Spurs advance. Excluding his goose egg in Game 3, Parker scored at least 15 points in the other five games and was able to mix in all sorts of scoring. Against Houston, Parker was above his average in scoring with 14.3 points per game, so maybe he can keep this impressive run going. Game 1 is on Monday.
Apr 28 - 12:52 AM

Tony Parker bounced back in Game 4 against the Grizzlies, scoring 22 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and two turnovers in 37 minutes.

Those 37 minutes were by far the most he's played all season and in the playoffs. Parker hasn't hit the 32-minute mark since Jan. 10, so coach Gregg Popovich went into uncharted waters. After his zero-point, 19-minute game on Thursday, the Spurs have to be satisfied Parker was able to produce.
Apr 22 - 11:32 PM

Tony Parker did not score in 19 minutes against the Grizzlies on Thursday, adding just one rebound and one turnover.

After Parker looked to have found the fountain of youth in the first two games with his 16.5 points per game, he just came out flat today and Mike Conley also took care of business. Based on how much he struggled throughout the regular season, there is a little cause for concern for the future Hall of Fame point guard.
Apr 21 - 12:12 AM

Tony Parker scored 15 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and three triples vs. the Grizzlies on Monday.

The playoff version of Tony Parker is so much more fun. After averaging 10.1 points on 9.0 field goal attempts during the regular season, Parker is averaging 16.5 points on 13.5 FGAs through the first two games of this series. He also attempted five 3-pointers tonight which only happened once during the regular season. If you need a cheap PG in DFS, Parker is firmly back in the mix as a viable play.
Apr 18 - 12:39 AM

Tony Parker scored 18 points with two rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

For basically the entire season, Parker looked like he aged five years, but he was able to get good looks against Mike Conley while the Spurs were able to hide him on defense. Maybe Parker was sandbagging us all along, but he's still a questionable DFS punt in Game 2 on Monday.
Apr 15 - 10:53 PM

Tony Parker scored two points with two assists in 20 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

He hasn't played well for basically the whole season, but coach Gregg Popovich won't rest Parker. He's not going to play many minutes, though.
Apr 9 - 12:04 AM

Tony Parker was a healthy scratch on Friday vs. the Mavericks.

Parker was available to play, but the Spurs went deep into their bench tonight and rolled with Bryn Forbes instead. The Spurs can't move up or down in the standings, so Parker is likely going to get another DNP or two in the final three games of the season.
Apr 7 - 11:37 PM

Tony Parker will come off the bench on Friday vs. the Mavericks.

The Spurs are resting Pau Gasol, Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge, while Danny Green (quad), Manu Ginobili (quad) and Dejounte Murray (groin) are also out. It's a little surprising that Parker isn't getting the night off, but the move to the bench suggests that the Spurs will monitor his minutes tonight. He's not a fantasy option in most formats.
