Tony Parker said he plans to play 5-6 more seasons in the NBA and retire from international play after the 2016 Olympics.
Parker is 33 years old, has 14 years of experience and really hit the ground running back in 2001 with his 29.4 minutes per game in his rookie season. His minutes and production have dropped in each of his last three seasons and that trend figures to continue going forward. He'll be a risky PG2 in fantasy leagues next season. Jun 17 - 5:06 PM

Tony Parker will have a specific regimen designed to strengthen his hamstrings this summer.

Parker missed 14 games this season, and his left hamstring clearly gave him a lot of problems on several occasions. He posted the second lowest scoring average of his career with just 14.4 points per game, and he saw an average of just 28.7 minutes when he did suit up. Parker has clearly lost a step, but hopefully he will have a productive offseason and come back stronger next season.

Tony Parker didn't play down the stretch against the Clippers on Thursday, finishing with eight points, four rebounds, seven assists and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

Patty Mills played down the stretch and it might have had something to do with the Spurs needing some 3-pointers to cut the Clippers' lead. Parker should get his normal playing time on Saturday in Game 7.
May 1 - 12:36 AM

Tony Parker struggled in 33 minutes of action on Tuesday, shooting 5-of-15 from the field and 3-of-5 at the FT line to finish with 13 points, five rebounds and three assists.

He's playing at less than 100 percent health due to lingering ankle, Achilles and quad injuries, allowing Chris Paul to thoroughly dominate the point guard matchup in Round 1. Parker moved well enough tonight but didn't have his usual explosion, and even his dribble penetration rarely led to easy buckets. The Spurs are fortunate to have a 3-2 series lead while Parker is averaging 9.6 points on 32.8 percent FGs and 58.8 percent FTs.
Apr 29 - 2:16 AM

Tony Parker (ankle, Achilles, quad) admitted on Tuesday that he's not 100 percent healthy, but he will continue to fight through the pain and he will play in Game 5 on Tuesday against the Clippers.

Parker struggled through the first three games of the series, but he managed to go off for 18 points during Game 4 on Sunday. Parker knows that he needs to be aggressive for San Antonio to have a shot at repeating for a championship, and he'll look to keep his momentum going during Tuesday's Game 5. We'll let you know how he fares after the game.

Tony Parker said that his sore left ankle, tight right Achilles tendon and bruised left quadriceps are getting better, but he did admit that he doesn't have the same lift on his jumpers.

"Obviously, it has to do with my Achilles and my ankle because sometimes I don’t feel the same lift," Parker said. "But as long as I’m aggressive, that’s all [head coach Gregg Popovich] wants. He wants me to be in attack mode." Parker has been pretty sluggish in the playoffs so far, averaging just 5.7 points, 3.0 assists and 2.3 boards through the first three games. A win on Sunday would allow the Spurs to take a commanding 3-1 series lead over the Clippers, so expect Parker to be a little more aggressive tonight.
Apr 26 - 9:14 AM

Tony Parker (Achilles) played 26 minutes in Friday's Game 3 win over the Clippers, scoring six points on 3-of-11 shooting with three rebounds and three assists.

This low minute total and low-impact game was huge for his ability to rest up for Sunday's Game 4. We'll keep an eye on his status and we're not too confident in his overall ability to produce, but this was a win for Spurs fans tonight.
Apr 24 - 11:58 PM

Spurs' head coach Gregg Popovich said that Tony Parker will play in Game 3 against the Clippers on Friday.

Parker is going to fight through the pain tonight for a very important Game 3 for San Antonio. He has however struggled through the first two games of the series, scoring just one point in his last outing, so he makes for a very risky option in daily leagues.
Apr 24 - 1:09 PM

Tony Parker (Achilles) is being listed as questionable for Game 3 against the Clippers on Friday.

Parker was unable to finish Wednesday's game with the injury, but he said on Thursday that he didn't expect to miss any time. We'll be monitoring Parker's status closely, but sounds like he may be headed for a game-time call on Friday. If he's forced to sit, Patty Mills and Cory Joseph would be asked to fill the void. Mills was fantastic on Wednesday, and he'd be worth a look in daily leagues if Parker can't go. Stay tuned.

Tony Parker (Achilles) said he doesn't expect to miss any time.

Parker said he was forced to leave Wednesday's Game 2 with the same injury he suffered against Oklahoma City on April 7, but doesn't expect to miss any time. "It's been a tough year, but I think I'll be all right," Parker said. "I think I put too much pressure on the right ankle because of the soreness in my left ankle." We'll update Parker's status prior to Friday's Game 3, but it sounds like he'll try and gut through this injury for as long as he can.
Apr 23 - 11:58 AM

Tim Duncan said he's concerned about Tony Parker's Achilles injury.

Parker left Wednesday's Game 2 in the fourth quarter and was unable to return and Duncan said that he's "very concerned" about Parker's injury. "I hope he's able to play and play well for us," The Big Fundamental said. "We need him for that. He's a big part of what we do. So him not at 100 percent hurts us. But we'll see. He's a gamer." We'll keep an eye on updates, but Patty Mills and Cory Joseph would be in line for big minutes if Parker is forced to miss any time.

Tony Parker is dealing with a right Achilles injury on Wednesday and will not return.

He already had left ankle and thigh injuries heading into this game. Parker is dealing with tightness in his Achilles, so it's not a serious injury. Still, he did not look like himself, so he might need some time off. If he's out, Patty Mills and Cory Joseph would get some extra run. Parker finished with one point, two boards, five assists and one steal.
Apr 23 - 1:08 AM

Tony Parker said after the Spurs practice on Tuesday that his left ankle and thigh are fine and he will play in Game 2 against the Clippers on Wednesday.

Parker struggled in his 29 minutes of action during Sunday's Game 1, shooting just 4-of-11 from the field, and getting torched by Chris Paul on the other end. He'll need to put forth a better effort on Wednesday if the Spurs have any chance of evening up the series before heading to San Antonio for Game 3.
Apr 21 - 3:16 PM

Tony Parker tweaked his ankle early in Sunday's game, but he kept playing and finished with 10 points on 4-of-11 shooting, two rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 29 minutes.

Chris Paul lit up the Spurs for 32 points in a lopsided battle at PG tonight. The ankle injury caused Parker to briefly head into the Spurs' locker room and we'll monitor his status as a precaution leading up to Game 2, especially since he also took a shot to his left thigh in the second quarter.
Apr 20 - 2:01 AM

Tony Parker briefly visited the Spurs locker room after appearing to sprain his ankle during Sunday's game, but he has since returned to the game.

Parker may have simply had his ankle re-taped in the locker room and his return is terrific news. We'll keep a close eye on his status going forward.
