Tony Parker: Spurs Star Guard to Miss Two to Four Weeks After Injury
Tony Parker Out Two to Four Weeks After Straining Calf Muscle.
San Antonio Spurs star point guard Tony Parker left Sunday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies after colliding with Mike Conley in the second quarter, not returning to the floor.
It turns out Parker will be missing a lot more time after being diagnosed with a strained left calf muscle after the game.
Parker, leading the Spurs to the best record in the NBA so far, has averaged 17.1 points, 6.6 assists. and 3.2 rebounds this year, playing over 32 minutes per game.
The 49-11 Spurs, who beat the Grizzlies on Sunday, lost tonight, 109-93, with Parker out and guard George Hill as his replacement.
Hill went 2-for-6 with six turnovers in Parker's absence.
The Spurs still have a solid overall team, you don't win 49 games at this point without having a fantastic collective effort. They still have Tim Duncan. They still have Manu Ginobili, who leads the team in scoring at 18.2 points per game.
But it's clear that the Spurs probably won't make it that far in the playoffs without Parker, an undeniable difference-maker for the team.
