Popovich ‘Concerned’ About Tony Parker
Gregg Popovich does not know what to make of Parker’s unspecified leg injury from last night. The Spurs lost a 108-88 blowout to Oklahoma City and Parker left the court in the fourth quarter limping. Parker ended the night with a season-low 2 points and shot just 1-6 from the field.
“I’m really concerned about Tony right now after seeing his situation tonight where he just had to stop,” Popovich told NBA.com. “My feeling is tendinitis, something in his shins or whatever, from the way it looked on the court. But I don’t know. I got to see what’s going on. I got to see what the deal is. We thought he had just kind of recovered from his ankle, so this was something new tonight with his leg. I just don’t know what it is right now.”
The Spurs are already playing without Manu Ginobili for the remainder of the regular season. If last night was any indication, San Antonio cannot afford to play without Parker and Ginobili in the playoffs.
