Tony Parker scored a season-high 23 points in Monday's 100-98 win over the Grizzlies.
He checked into the fourth quarter with 6:05 left and buried four shots for a quick eight points to give the Spurs a spark. Parker turned back the clock tonight and hit 10-of-14 shots with four assists and a steal, but there's a good chance that this will end up being his best game of the season. Dejounte Murray is the starting point guard and that isn't going to change. Leave Parker on the wire. Mar 6 - 12:19 AM

Tony Parker didn't attempt a single field goal or free throw in 14 minutes on Sunday, contributing just one assist and one steal with three turnovers.

Parker came in averaging 14.5 points, 4.5 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals in his previous two games, but deferred to his teammates tonight. Fellow reserve Bryn Forbes scored 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting, while Danny Green added 22 points on 6-of-11 shooting, and Parker's offense wasn't required in an eventual 110-94 road win. There are safer fantasy options on almost any waiver wire.
Feb 25 - 7:09 PM

Tony Parker scored a season-high 17 points vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday, hitting 7-of-11 shots and 3-of-4 free throws.

The fact that he did this on the second night of a back-to-back is a good sign, though he did play just 16 minutes Monday. He played 24 minutes this time around, adding four assists, one rebound, one steal and two triples. He also looked good next to Dejounte Murray, and maybe we'll see more of that combo if Manu Ginobili's foot injury forces him to miss time. The Spurs are off until Feb. 23 against in a rematch vs. Denver.
Feb 14 - 1:08 AM

Tony Parker returned from a day of rest and hit 2-of-5 shots for six points, four rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes of Monday's loss to the Jazz.

Dejounte Murray is the starting point guard for the reeling Spurs (losers of four of their last five), meaning Parker has no fantasy value these days.
Feb 12 - 11:50 PM

Tony Parker will play on Monday after missing Saturday's game with tightness in his back.

The Spurs are going to micromanage everyone down the stretch, with the only goal of having everyone healthy for the playoffs. Dejounte Murray is the starting point guard in San Antonio now, meaning Parker doesn't have fantasy value these days.
Feb 12 - 7:50 PM

Tony Parker (back tightness) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Jazz.

The All-Star break is looming so maybe the Spurs will hold Parker out, but we'll know more after Monday's shootaround. Patty Mills and Derrick White should gain the most if Parker is ruled out.
Feb 11 - 7:25 PM

Tony Parker (back tightness) is out for Saturday's game against the Warriors.

The Spurs are always careful with their injured players, so there's a very good chance Parker is out beyond Saturday. It's also somewhat interesting that it's a national game, so maybe he's hurt more than the usual times. Either way, we'll see more Bryn Forbes, Derrick White and Patty Mills.
Feb 9 - 3:44 PM

Tony Parker started the second half of Wednesday's game in place of Dejounte Murray (sprained left ankle), finishing with 13 points, four rebounds, two steals and one assist in 27 minutes.

Parker recently ceded the job to Murray without any discord, but he was forced back into the starting five due to Murray's injury. For what it's worth, Murray said he's targeting a return vs. the Warriors on Saturday. Parker's fantasy value doesn't really change no matter where he begins games, since San Antonio will always limit his minutes, so there's no incentive to pick him up.
Feb 8 - 1:44 AM

Tony Parker finished with 11 points and nine assists across 23 minutes off the bench Saturday against Utah.

Parker hit 5-of-9 from the field while chipping in with three assists and a steal, outplaying Dejounte Murray, who was again in the starting five. It was a rare mediocre night for Murray, who has been playing pretty well since head coach Gregg Popovich made the change. Expect Parker to keep coming off the bench, making him a less-than-attractive fantasy option more often than not.
Feb 4 - 12:24 AM

Tony Parker posted two points with a rebound and an assist across 13 minutes Friday against Philadelphia.

Parker was coming off the bench again, as Dejounte Murray flirted with a double-double in his fourth consecutive start. Murray has flourished since moving into the starting five, so it's unlikely Parker sees his role change anytime soon. his sporadic DNPs and limited minutes make him a less-than-attractive fantasy play most nights.
Jan 27 - 1:06 AM

Tony Parker scored 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting Wednesday, with four assists, one rebound and a pair of turnovers in 21 minutes.

Parker has taken his demotion to the bench in stride. "He thought it was good for the team to give Dejounte [Murray] a chance to see what he could do," said Gregg Popovich. "He was mature. That really made it easy on me to make the decision." The bench role hasn't hurt Parker's production, but limited minutes and sporadic DNPs make him undesirable in typical leagues.
Jan 25 - 12:16 AM

Tony Parker played just 18 minutes off the bench, but still had 14 points and six assists on 7-of-12 shooting on Tuesday.

Gregg Popovich has confirmed that Dejounte Murray is now his starting point guard, but Parker will still have a sizable role with the Spurs. Having said that, Murray is the point guard you want to own in fantasy from the Spurs.
Jan 23 - 10:53 PM

Tony Parker said after Sunday's game that Dejounte Murray will likely be the Spurs' starting PG going forward.

"[Gregg Popovich] told me ... that he thought it was time," Parker said. "And I was like, 'No, problem.'" He added that he'll help Murray "as best [he] can," and the 35-year-old embodied professionalism in the wake of his demotion. Parker's fantasy value doesn't change too much and his usage rate could actually increase, but Murray gets a solid bump as the starter going forward.
Jan 21 - 10:43 PM

Tony Parker came off the bench on Sunday for 12 points (5-of-10 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs), five assists, three rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.

This was the 21st time Parker has come off the bench in his career, and the first time since the 2010 postseason. Dejounte Murray took his spot and Gregg Popovich would only say "we'll see" when asked if the move would last longer than one game. The Spurs may have simply wanted more playmaking into the second unit with Manu Ginobili (thigh) and Rudy Gay (heel) out again, but we'll find out when they face the Cavs on Tuesday. Either way, this doesn't change Parker's fantasy value very much since the key is him staying on the court and avoiding DNP-CDs.
Jan 21 - 10:08 PM

Tony Parker (sprained right ankle) returned to the starting lineup Saturday against the Nuggets, playing 19 minutes while posting five points.

Parker didn't last long, but it wasn't due to any type of setback with his injury. He and the starters received plenty of rest in the second half, giving way to the reserve in a blowout victory. The Spurs are next in action on Monday afternoon in Atlanta. They have four games on tap in the upcoming week, but no back-to-back situations.
