Tony Parker is shooting 14-of-22 (63.6 percent) from behind the 3-point line this season.
Parker leads the NBA in 3-point field goal percentage. It's a small sample size, but it speaks to Parker's improvement in that area of his game. A career 32.1 percent shooter from distance, Parker's previous career-high was 39.5 percent back in 2006-07. Parker made just 25 3-pointers last season, and he's on pace to shatter that mark.

Tony Parker made all three attempts from 3-point range and 12-of-18 overall for 28 points against the Wolves on Friday with five assists and one turnover in just 25 minutes.

Amazingly, he is now making 68.4 percent from beyond the arc this season, which is more than double his career 32.0 percent from that range. Parker is going to have to handle a lot of minutes with Cory Joseph (ankle) at less than 100 percent, so he is actually a solid daily fantasy play against the Nets on Saturday.
Nov 21 - 11:55 PM

Tony Parker played 34 minutes, but hit just 2-of-7 shots for eight points and three assists in Wednesday's win over the Cavs.

Parker's season is off to a tumultuous start and he's scored 11 or fewer points in four straight games. He's averaging 16 points and five assists on the season, but he tends to sit any time the Spurs play an inferior opponent. And even against teams like the Kings and Cavs over the last week, he's been disappointing. Parker has only hit the 20-point plateau three times in 11 games and his owners could be in for a long season, with Gregg Popovich focused solely on the postseason health of his players.
Nov 19 - 10:34 PM

Tony Parker played just 18 minutes in a blowout win over the 76ers on Monday, scoring five points with five assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

The Spurs will play a desperate Cavs team on Wednesday in Cleveland and maybe that's why coach Gregg Popovich took it easy on his veterans tonight. Parker will be fine on Wednesday night.
Nov 18 - 1:37 AM

Tony Parker got hot vs. the Warriors, scoring 28 points on 11-of-17 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs, while making both of his 3-point attempts.

The triples are a rare treat from Parker, who hasn't made more than 25 three-pointers in a season since 2004-05. He's quietly off to a great start this year and his decision to skip the FIBA World Cup should keep him fresher (and less prone to DNP-CDs) as the season progresses.
Nov 12 - 1:30 AM

Tony Parker scored 28 points against the Pelicans on Saturday with three rebounds, four assists and five turnovers in 34 minutes.

He made 11-of-18 from the field and all six free throws in an efficient game. Parker is playing his most minutes since the 2010-11 season and it might have something to do with Patty Mills (shoulder) being out. Keep him in your lineup.
Nov 9 - 1:46 AM

Tony Parker hit just 3-of-8 shots for six points and one assist in 26 minutes of Thursday's ugly loss to the Rockets.

Parker had a chance for a huge night with Patrick Beverley out and both teams playing makeshift lineups. However, he never got on track and it looked the like the Spurs chalked this up as a loss before the game even started. Parker has played well this season, but tonight should be written off by fantasy owners as a dud.
Nov 6 - 10:47 PM

Tony Parker has been working to improve his 3-point shot, and he's 6-for-6 so far this season.

Parker has worked with shooting coach Chip Engelland to really improve his stroke from downtown. TP9 has shot above 35% from behind the arc each of the last two seasons, and while he's unlikely to ever become a major contributor in the category, the makes are a nice added bonus for his owners. Keep in mind that Parker has not shot more than 70 triples in any season since 2004-05.
Nov 3 - 9:32 AM

Tony Parker tied his career-high with four 3-pointers during Tuesday's thrilling home win vs. the Mavericks, finishing with 23 points, three rebounds, three assists and one turnover.

Parker was draining corner 3s with ease and it would be a welcome surprise if he looks for his shot behind the arc more often this year -- he hasn't averaged more than 0.5 per game since the 2003-04 season. He skipped the FIBA World Cup this summer, which will hopefully dissuade Gregg Popovich from giving him many DNP-CDs.
Oct 28 - 11:22 PM

Tony Parker returned from a rest on Wednesday and had 17 points, five rebounds and seven assists on 7-of-13 shooting.

Parker can be a fun player to own, but has had some injury woes over the last few seasons. He's also not a great free throw shooter, and doesn't hit many 3-pointers. But when his game is on and he's aggressive, he puts up quality point guard numbers. Target him when you need a point guard and the studs are gone.

The Spurs were overwhelmingly favored to repeat as NBA champions in a recent survey of the league's GMs, with Gregg Popovich earning 92.9 percent of votes for 'Best Coach.'

Joakim Noah earned the nod for 'Best Defensive Player,' Jabari Parker was declared the rookie who will impress the most in five years, and Tyson Chandler's trade to Dallas was voted the 'Most Underrated Acquisition' of the summer. You can peruse the full results by clicking on the link below.

Tony Parker (rest) will sit out of Saturday's exhibition.

The Spurs are going to be cautious with their aging superstar and there was no reason to push him in the preseason. Apart from the risk of DNPs and the constant injury risk, Parker will be a decent option in the middle rounds of drafts if you are feeling lucky.
Oct 18 - 7:03 PM

Tony Parker scored nine points in 22 minutes against the Suns on Thursday to go with one rebound, four assists and four turnovers.

Most of his teammates weren't there and he's played well this month. Parker is healthy and will need to stay healthy, especially with Patty Mills (shoulder) out until January. Cory Joseph is having a solid training camp, as well.
Oct 17 - 12:48 AM

Tony Parker made 7-of-12 from the field and 8-of-11 from the line for 22 points during a 96-90 win over Fenerbahce Ulker on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

He's been very aggressive and has been to the line a whopping 24 times in two games. Parker is a terrific No. 2 point guard to own, but you'll have to deal with his DNPs and carries some extra injury risk.
Oct 11 - 2:35 PM

Tony Parker scored a game-high 28 points during a loss to Alba Berlin on Wednesday, adding one rebound, three assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

The Spurs lost on a buzzer-beater and didn't have much rhythm throughout the game. Parker was fantastic on offense and went to the line 13 times, making 11 of them. He'll be a strong No. 2 point guard with a nice per-game value, but he'll slide in fantasy drafts because he'll miss games.
