Tony Parker scored eight points in his return on Thursday, adding one rebound, five assists and two turnovers in 24 minutes against the Bulls.
While it was a surprise to see him back, he did not look right and hasn't played well all season. Parker has looked bad on defense at times, but it hasn't really hurt the Spurs overall. Interestingly, the Spurs have given up a season-high scoring effort to a point guard just once all season, which is tied for the lowest in the NBA. As for Parker, he's too much of a headache to own.

Date:

Tony Parker (left knee) will start against the Bulls on Thursday night.

This is a mild surprise for Parker, who missed Tuesday's action. Parker likely won't play many minutes in his return to the lineup and he'll certainly miss more games going forward.
Dec 8 - 8:21 PM

Tony Parker (left knee contusion) will not play Tuesday vs. Minnesota.

This news is not surprising, as Coach Pop told reporters on Monday that Parker would likely have to miss and "extended period" of time due to his latest injury, which he suffered against the Bucks on Monday night. Feel free to cut Parker if you play in a standard league, as there should be far more attractive options on the wire. Nicolas Laprovittola will likely start in place of Parker on Tuesday, but Patty Mills is the biggest beneficiary.
Dec 6 - 2:02 PM

Tony Parker left Monday's win over the Bucks with an apparent knee injury that coach Gregg Popovich said could keep him out for an extended period.

Having returned from a two-game stint on the injured list with a left thigh contusion, Parker left the game in Milwaukee in the third quarter. Parker has missed seven games this season with a variety of bumps and bruises. Coach Pop indicated after Monday’s setback that he might be forced to sit Parker for an extended period in order to heal again. "I think so," Popovich said. The Spurs play Tuesday in Minnesota and Thursday in Chicago. If Parker cannot play, rookie Nicolas Laprovittola is likely to replace him in the starting lineup, but Patty Mills is the biggest beneficiary.
Dec 6 - 9:20 AM

Tony Parker started and played through his knee issue on Monday, but hit just 3-of-8 shots for six points and five assists in 18 minutes.

He's completely untrustworthy these days, but Patty Mills, who is the point guard to own for the Spurs, missed all eight of his shots for one point and five assists. Mills has scored in double figures in three of his last five games, but wasn't feeling it tonight.
Dec 5 - 11:37 PM

Tony Parker (quad) will play Monday vs. the Bucks.

He's dealing with a bruised quad, so Gregg Popovich may limit his workload in Parker's first game back following a two-game stint on the sidelines. He's not a great fantasy option in most leagues.
Dec 5 - 6:54 PM

Tony Parker is dealing a left quadriceps contusion and Coach Pop indicated Parker would remain day-to-day when the team starts a three-game road trip beginning Monday in Milwaukee.

Parker appeared to tweak his leg in Tuesday’s home loss to Orlando. He dressed but did not play Wednesday, when the Spurs won in Dallas. He was also sidelined Friday night. It marked the seventh game Parker missed this season. For the second straight game, rookie Nicolas Laprovittola started at point guard for the Spurs. Parker is suffering through, by far, his least productive season since 2001-02, when he was a 19-year old rookie. Patty Mills is actually the preferred fantasy option at this point.
Dec 3 - 10:33 AM

Tony Parker (knee) will not play against the Wizards on Friday.

He's actually on the injury report for a knee injury, so this isn't just rest. Patty Mills has played out of his mind as the NBA's leader in true shooting percentage, so he will slightly benefit here. Nicolas Laprovittola should pick up minutes close to 20 tonight as well.
Dec 2 - 6:58 PM

Tony Parker will not start vs. the Mavericks on Wednesday.

It will be Nicolas Laprovittola getting the nod as the Spurs' starter tonight, with Patty Mills filling his usual role as backup PG. Parker could see a few minutes off the bench but more than likely he'll pick up a DNP-CD, as the Spurs are facing the team with the league's worst record tonight.
Nov 30 - 7:35 PM

Tony Parker scored a season-high 20 points against the Wizards on Saturday with one rebound, three assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

He doubled his previous season average of 9.5 points per game in what was easily his best offensive game. Parker is going to be limited for most of the season, so fantasy owners may not want to deal with the headache.
Nov 26 - 9:50 PM

Tony Parker finished the Spurs' 119-114 road win on Wednesday with 11 points (3-of-10 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), three assists, one rebound, one steal and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

Parker was rested on Monday, part of prescribed rest that will be a common occurrence this season. He is flirting with top-120 value but doesn't offer much upside at this stage of his career, and teammate Patty Mills (eight points, four assists) is a more palatable option in most formats.
Nov 23 - 10:21 PM

Tony Parker (rest) will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Hornets, sending Dejounte Murray back to the bench.

With Parker back in action, Patty Mills will likely be flirting with minutes in the mid-20s and Murray might not play at all. Parker has been playing better as of late, but on a 13-game night, there should be better options out there.
Nov 23 - 5:45 PM

Tony Parker (rest) will not play vs. the Mavericks on Monday.

Parker said last week that his knee was starting to improve, but the Spurs will give him a maintenance day against a Mavericks' team that is missing three starters. Expect Patty Mills to draw the start on Monday.
Nov 21 - 7:38 PM

Tony Parker said that his knee is improving.

"It’s starting to get better and better," Parker said. "I just don’t want to jinx it. It still has some fluid in it, but it is very low now. Hopefully, it will go away. We don’t play until Monday, so those two days off are going to help." Parker has been playing a lot better since his return to the lineup with averages of 12.8 points and 5.4 assists, but standard-league owners can probably find a better option.
Nov 20 - 9:55 AM

Tony Parker matched his season-high with 16 points in Friday's win over the Lakers.

He shot 6-of-10 from the field with seven assists, two rebounds and one triple in arguably his best all-around game of the season. He has scored in double digits in his last four games and is averaging 12.8 points and 5.4 assists over his last five, but he's not a must-own player in standard leagues by any means.
