Tony Parker (hamstring) is going to start on Monday against the Clippers and see limited minutes.
As per usual, there's no telling what limited means with the Spurs. One thing that is clear is that fantasy owners of Cory Joseph should dial down their expectations tonight. Parker is worth owning in standard leagues, but will likely rest a lot this season. Dec 22 - 6:49 PM

Tony Parker (hamstring) has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's game against the Clippers.

Parker has missed five straight and eight of nine games with the hamstring injury, so the upgrade in status is a great sign after he was previously declared out. If Parker is able to play, Cory Joseph would go back to the bench and lose a lot of his fantasy appeal in the process. However, it is worth noting that Parker has already aggravated the issue once, and the Spurs are notoriously careful with their veteran players.

Tony Parker (hamstring) has already been ruled out for Monday's game.

Cory Joseph will continue to start at PG in Parker's absence and could be a sneaky play in weekly leagues, as Parker hasn't yet targeted a return date. Hamstring injuries are notoriously easy to aggravate, which is all the more reason for San Antonio to play it safe with their All-Star guard.
Dec 21 - 5:57 PM

Tony Parker (hamstring) will not play on Saturday vs. Dallas.

Parker is still without a timetable to return, and it doesn't sound like he is too close to returning to action. His owners should continue to remain patient, while Cory Joseph will continue to start at point guard and is worth a look in all leagues.
Dec 20 - 1:42 PM

Tony Parker (hamstring) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Portland.

Parker remains without an official timetable to return, and Cory Joseph will continue to start as long as Parker is sidelined. Manu Ginobili will also be tasked with some extra ball-handling duties running the offense in the second unit.
Dec 18 - 3:51 PM

Tony Parker (hamstring) will not play on Wednesday, and there is still no timetable for his return.

You better believe that that Spurs are going to be cautious with him, and we wouldn't expect to see Parker back before he was 100 percent. Owners will have no choice but to be patient, and in the meantime Cory Joseph will continue to start and is worth a look in most leagues for short-term value.
Dec 17 - 11:35 AM

Tony Parker (hamstring) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

The Spurs are always going to be extra cautious with their aging veterans, and Cory Joseph will slide into the starting lineup with Parker sidelined. Parker's injury doesn't seem too serious, but there is currently no timetable set for his return. Joseph will sustain some short-term value as long as Parker is sidelined, and will make for a nice plug-and-play option in daily leagues.

Tony Parker (hamstring) will not play against the Blazers on Monday.

He doesn't look right and the Spurs will hold him out of his second game in a row. His fantasy owners have to bench him this week. Meanwhile, Cory Joseph gets another start and is worth a look in a four-game week.

Tony Parker (hamstring) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Parker returned to action on Friday, but struggled, lasting just 18 minutes and shooting 2-of-5 from the field. Cory Joseph will likely draw another start, and he'll make for a decent plug-and-play option in daily leagues. The Spurs play again on Monday vs. the Trail Blazers, and we'll be considering Parker questionable for that one. Stay tuned.

Tony Parker (hamstring) returned to action in Friday's home loss to the Lakers, playing just 18 minutes with five points, two assists and one steal.

Parker didn't play after the third quarter and he didn't look particularly good tonight, so it's hard to know if he aggravated the injury, was rusty or if Pop just wanted to ride Cory Joseph (16 points, four rebounds, five assists, four steals, one block). We'll let you know when the Spurs update everybody on his status.
Dec 13 - 4:11 AM

Tony Parker (hamstring) will return to the starting lineup on Friday as the Spurs take on the Lakers.

Parker has a favorable matchup tonight going up against Ronnie Price of the Lakers. If the game is competitive Parker could have a very nice outing, but with the Lakers there's always a chance of a blowout, which would find Parker quickly seated on the bench. Cory Joseph will head back to the bench, and owners who picked him up while Parker was sidelined can go ahead and send him back to the wire.
Dec 12 - 7:48 PM

Tony Parker (hamstring) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Lakers.

Parker will have a very nice matchup vs. the Lakers, and the only thing that will hold him back from putting up a big stat line will be the potential for a blowout. Check back for an official update closer to Friday's tip, but if you made a speculative add of Cory Joseph, you might want to look elsewhere for production.
Dec 11 - 5:45 PM

Tony Parker (hamstring) and Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play on Wednesday against the Knicks.

Tim Duncan is still a game-time decision. Parker is only dealing with a mild strain and he probably could play if the Spurs really wanted him to, but the Spurs do not care much about the regular season much. Cory Joseph will get the start and look to bounce back from his last poor outing.
Dec 10 - 7:07 PM

Tony Parker (hamstring) is questionable on Wednesday against the Knicks and his status has a lot to do with pain tolerance, according to coach Gregg Popovich.

Under most circumstances, Parker would probably sit this one out, but they Spurs could really use him tonight. If he's out, Cory Joseph will get a ton of run.
Dec 10 - 4:55 PM

Tony Parker's (hamstring) status for Wednesday's game is up in the air, and coach Gregg Popovich said it depends on how he feels leading up to the game.

If we had to guess given the cautious nature of the Spurs, Parker will likely sit this one out. Owners should check back for official confirmation before tip-off, while Cory Joseph will handle the point if Parker sits this one out. Stay tuned.
