Spurs shooting guard Danny Green told reporters that Tony Parker (left quad) is "a couple of months ahead of schedule."
Here's the full quote from Green: "[Parker] obviously had a tough injury last year but he's recovering. He's a couple of months ahead of schedule. I don't want to leak anything but he might be playing a lot sooner than people think he's playing." We'll obviously have to wait for confirmation from the Spurs coaches and medical staff, but this is surprising news. Parker, who was previously expected to be out until January, should still be avoided on draft day, but if he's projected to return sooner, that negatively impacts Dejounte Murray's fantasy value.

Tony Parker (left quad) said that he's targeting a return to the court in four to five months.

He said back in May that he was targeting a return in January, so it sounds like he's still on pace to meet that goal. "It's OK. It's OK. It's getting better and better," Parker said of his quad. "I'm starting to run like a little bit. I'm walking pretty well. I think it's still going to be a long process. It's still going to take like another four or five months but I am very happy in with the progress." Parker can be ignored in standard-league drafts and wouldn't have been a target even if he was 100 percent. Dejounte Murray and Patty Mills will hold down the fort at PG until he returns to action.

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.

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.
May 5 - 1:50 PM

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.
