Tony Parker went to the locker room on Monday and did not return.
He went to the locker room to ice his back and coach Gregg Popovich said that there is no reason to be concerned. Chances are Parker is going to sit out on Wednesday vs. the Lakers, which means Cory Joseph would get a start. Parker finished with 10 points, four boards, one assist and two steals in 26 minutes on Monday. Apr 14 - 11:03 PM

Tony Parker is eager to find his rhythm before the playoffs and he's expected to lobby Gregg Popovich to play on Monday.

Pop said that he limited Parker's playing time on Friday even though his star PG "wanted to keep playing badly," and the minimal stakes for Monday's game open the possibility that key players like Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili could be rested. Popovich also wants his team to be humming when the playoffs start, however, so there's a good chance that Parker will at least get some action on Monday and Wednesday.
Apr 14 - 10:54 AM

Tony Parker made a surprise return to the lineup on Friday vs. the Suns, failing to turn the ball over with 18 points, one board, three assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

It's usually surprise scratches from coach Gregg Popovich this time of year, but Parker made it back tonight after missing only two games due to a sprained facet joint on the left side of his back. The Spurs locked up the best record in the NBA tonight and all bets are off for how they'll handle things in their remaining two games.

Tony Parker (back) will play vs. the Suns on Friday.

Wow. There was talk of Parker being eased back into his minutes in the first round of the playoffs, but he's going to be back on the court after only missing two games due to a back sprain. This is tough news for the Suns who really need this game for their playoff hopes. Patty Mills should still put up a nice line considering Manu Ginobili is out.
Apr 11 - 6:38 PM

Tony Parker (back) and Tim Duncan (rest) are not expected to play in Friday's game against the Suns.

Parker's back injury isn't considered serious, but we know coach Gregg Popovich is going to err on the side of extreme caution with the playoffs just one week away. Patty Mills is a solid plug-n-play option once again as he comes off a 26-point, six-assist, six-trey night. Meanwhile, Duncan is a near lock to sit after logging a season-high 39 minutes in Thursday's win at Dallas.
Apr 11 - 9:15 AM

Gregg Popovich says Tony Parker's back injury isn't "that serious" and hopes that he'll play again in the regular season.

Parker's been ruled out for Tuesday night and one more game, but could return after that. Pop would like for Parker to get a couple games in before the playoffs start, but by the time he plays again, your fantasy league will likely be over.
Apr 8 - 12:24 PM

An MRI revealed Tony Parker suffered a sprained facet joint on the left side of his back and he will miss at least the next two games.

He won't play Tuesday vs. the Wolves or Thursday vs. the Mavericks. Considering an MRI revealed something is wrong, Parker could be out for the rest of the season. This should be enough information for Parker's owners to cut him in just about all leagues. Patty Mills will get more chances off the bench while Cory Joseph will get at least two starts.
Apr 7 - 4:21 PM

Tony Parker (back spasms) will not play against the Wolves on Tuesday.

He is having an MRI today, but no matter what type of news that evaluation brings, it won't be enough to get him in the lineup. Parker could be looking at a multiple-game absence and his current fantasy owners might want to become his former owners. Patty Mills has been great in games without Parker, so he's a strong pickup right now. Marco Belinelli and Cory Joseph also figure to get boosts.

Tony Parker will have an MRI on Monday after leaving Sunday's game with back spasms.

"We just have to hope it’s a couple-of-days thing," Manu Ginobili said after the game. "Of course we are a different team with him. We need him healthy and strong for the playoffs." The Spurs have rested Parker for much less serious injuries than back spasms, and fantasy owners should prepare for possible DNPs during the Spurs' upcoming three-game week. The MRI results should be announced late on Monday.
Apr 6 - 10:20 PM

Tony Parker (back spasms) will not return to Sunday's game.

He scored 10 points on 4-of-4 shooting in just nine minutes before hurting himself. Anyone who owns Nikola Vucevic or Kevin Love can relate to the pain of losing a key fantasy option in the championship week for most head-to-head leagues, and his status for Tuesday's road game is uncertain at best given the Spurs' judicious approach to injuries. Patty Mills stands to gain the most in Parker's absence, with help from Cory Joseph.
Apr 6 - 7:50 PM

Tony Parker struggled in his 26 minutes of action against the Thunder on Thursday, making 3-of-10 from the field for six points with four boards and three assists.

Despite having some Achilles soreness a few weeks ago, Parker has only missed one game since Mar. 1. He missed the last five games in February just after the All-Star break, so one would think Parker would be looking at some rest in the final six games. However, Parker has said he would prefer to play heading into the playoffs. That said, his owners will have to check back for every game to make sure he’s active the rest of the way.
Apr 3 - 11:13 PM

Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will play against the Warriors on Wednesday night, according to coach Gregg Popovich.

It's Popped season and he said he is going to play his vets tonight. It's only fair to be skeptical of this news considering coach Gregg Popovich has ruined the plans of fantasy owners for over a decade, but it is what it is.
Apr 2 - 7:00 PM

Tony Parker said jokingly that Gregg Popovich may "rest half the team" to snap the Spurs' franchise-best 18-game winning streak.

Extended winning streaks make Popovich nervous, as he's afraid his team will get complacent, and there's an element of truth to Parker's quote with the Spurs heading into a back-to-back set on Wednesday and Thursday. He's unlikely to be swayed by the fact that San Antonio plays two playoff-bound Western teams, the Warriors and Thunder, and owners should be on red alert for a possible DNP-CD involving Parker, Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green and/or Tiago Splitter.

Tony Parker scored 22 points on 10-of-18 shooting with one rebound and four assists as the Spurs dismantled the Pacers in Indiana on Monday.

Parker's 22 points came effortlessly and he was easily the best player on the floor. Kawhi Leonard added 13 points with 11 rebounds, one steal, one block and two threes while thoroughly outplaying Paul George. Old man Duncan had a steal and three blocks to go with nine points, six rebounds and four assists.
Mar 31 - 10:57 PM

Tony Parker played just 19 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Friday with four points, two boards, two assists, one steal and one turnover.

The Nuggets didn't show up tonight and it allowed coach Gregg Popovich to rest his guys down the stretch. Although, Parker is still playing through a sore Achilles. His owners will want to check back on Saturday for the second half of a back-to-back set.
