After being called out by his coach, Tony Parker hit rock bottom in Wednesday's loss to the Blazers, hitting 1-of-8 shots for two points, two rebounds, four assists, a steal and four turnovers.
"If he’s not the Tony Parker of past years, we’re not going anywhere," Gregg Popovich said on Tuesday. Parker will eventually get it turned around, but he's been brutal recently, scoring a grand total of nine points in his last three games, while the Spurs have now dropped four straight.

Head coach Gregg Popovich said that Tony Parker needs to break out of his funk if the Spurs have any hope to pursue another NBA title.

"If he’s not the Tony Parker of past years," Popovich said, "we’re not going anywhere." Parker is averaging just 14.1 points per game this season, his fewest since his rookie year, but he denied that his previous hamstring issue was still causing him problems. Parker has scored a combined seven points over the last two games, and if he doesn't figure things out soon the Spurs could be in serious trouble. He's simply too talented to drop in most leagues, and his owners can only hope that he turns things around with fantasy playoffs right around the corner.
Feb 24 - 8:41 PM

Tony Parker missed all four shots from the field in 21 minutes against the Warriors on Friday, scoring two points at the line with one rebound, six assists, two steals and two turnovers.

His numbers actually aren't bad on the second half of back-to-back sets this season, averaging 14.1 points, 1.9 boards, 4.8 assists and 0.6 treys. Parker's minutes were down partially because of the score, so he probably will be closer to 30 most nights.
Feb 21 - 4:13 AM

Tony Parker handed out a season-high 13 assists against the Clippers on Thursday, adding 21 points, three rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer.

Surprisingly, it's his first double-double of the season and tonight was a massive improvement from his previous five February games, averaging 16.4 points, 2.0 boards, 4.4 assists and no steals. Parker should have more big lines like this one along the way and he's slightly less likely to get "popped" with the Spurs not having a great record.
Feb 20 - 1:41 AM

Tony Parker scored a game-high 19 points during a 95-93 win against the Pacers on Monday with one rebound and six assists in 30 minutes.

After a very quiet January with only 11.0 points and 4.1 assists per game, Parker is heating up. He averaged 15.3 points per game in his previous February games and he's also played at least 28 minutes in every game since Jan. 24. He'll rest here and there, but he looks like he should have solid per-game value.
Feb 9 - 11:38 PM

Tony Parker scored just 10 points on Sunday against the Raptors, adding three boards, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

He is coming off a 21-point performance on Friday, so owners who had hoped that he had turned things around were left wanting more. The good news is that Parker has played in 16 straight games since returning from a hamstring strain, so he should be able to improve as the season wears on. It also helps that he will have a chance to get some needed rest during the upcoming All-Star break.
Feb 8 - 10:55 PM

Tony Parker busted his slump with 21 points, three rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in the Spurs' runaway win over the Heat on Friday.

Parker hit 9-of-12 shots and if he was dropped this is your sign to run and pick him up.
Feb 7 - 4:12 AM

Tony Parker has struggled to regain his previous form since suffering a partially torn hamstring during December, but he said on Friday that he just needs to stop thinking about it so much.

"I think it’s almost a mind thing," Parker said. "There’s not really pain. It’s just weird. I’m trying to stay positive and not think about it." Parker is averaging just 11.5 points and 3.8 assists in 25.3 minutes per game in January, and it's obvious that the Spurs are going to be cautious with him moving forward. The All-Star break should allow the veteran point guard to get some much needed rest, so owners should try to remain patient for now.
Jan 31 - 9:40 AM

Tony Parker was named FIBA Europe's 2014 men's player of the year on Wednesday.

This was his second straight year collecting the award, and he fully deserves it after helping the Spurs beat the Heat in the NBA Finals last season. However, Parker has really struggled to carry that momentum over into this season, but we also have to consider that he was battling a hamstring issue for quite some time. He is currently averaging 14.4 points, 4.7 assists and 1.7 boards per game, so his owners can only hope that he improves as the Spurs fight to bolster their position in the loaded Western Conference.
Jan 28 - 8:59 AM

Tony Parker scored 17 points in 23 minutes on Friday against the Lakers, hitting 7-of-14 shots (including a three) with one rebound and four assists.

Parker is slowly getting his feet underneath him and he profiles like a late-round guy in 8-cat leagues, and the hope for 9-cat owners is that he can truly pick up his game and stay in that same range.
Jan 24 - 3:47 AM

Tony Parker played just 21 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday with nine points, one rebound, one steal and one 3-pointer.

Coach Gregg Popovich continues to check on Parker to make sure his hamstring is fine, but garbage time is the only reason why Parker's minutes were low tonight. He'll get one of the friendliest matchups against the Lakers on Friday, but his owners will still want to make sure he doesn't rest on the second half of a back-to-back set.
Jan 22 - 10:43 PM

The Spurs used balanced scoring to escape with a road win in Denver on Tuesday, led by Tony Parker's 18 points on 8-of-16 shooting, four rebounds, seven assists and one turnover in 32 minutes.

Eleven different Spurs scored tonight, with six players cracking double-digits. San Antonio is fourth in bench scoring (40.8 points per game) and Gregg Popovich isn't afraid to lean on his reserves when appropriate, which leads to some unpredictable performances up and down the roster. Parker was coming off a four-point game after Sunday's blowout so hopefully he can carry this momentum into Thursday's showdown vs. the Bulls.
Jan 20 - 11:55 PM

Tony Parker scored only four points during Sunday's easy win vs. the Jazz, hitting 2-of-5 shots with one rebound, three assists, one steal and one turnover in 23 minutes.

Parker's offense wasn't needed tonight, as the Spurs built an early double-digit lead and never looked back, so Gregg Popovich took the opportunity to give him some extra rest. Parker had scored double-digit points in four straight games prior to Sunday's quiet night, and he should fare better in an up-tempo battle with the Nuggets on Tuesday.
Jan 18 - 9:30 PM

Tony Parker (hamstring) is coming along slowly, according to Gregg Popovich.

"He’s been real slow, not very confident," Popovich said. "He’s out of shape but trying to get back. We’re going to keep going slowly. We’d like to win more games, but it’s more important for us to be healthy." As long as Parker avoids any setbacks, he should only continue to improve as each outing passes. It's something for Cory Joseph's owners to monitor closely.
Jan 12 - 9:40 AM

Tony Parker played 22 minutes in Friday's win, scoring seven points on 3-of-9 shooting with one assist, one steal and one three.

Parker's backups had better luck as Patty Mills (15 points, three treys, two assists, 28 minutes) and Cory Joseph (11 points, three boards, five assists, one steal, 24 minutes) both outproduced him. Parker should eventually get back into a normal role, but this looks like a quagmire right now.
