Parker May Return Sooner than Projected
Seeing Tony Parker running on a treadmill at the practice facility has encouraged the Spurs that it won’t take him a full four weeks to recover from a Grade 2 left ankle sprain and return to action.
“We need Tony back as soon as possible, but at the same time, feeling good,” (Manu) Ginobili said. “We can’t have him limping or not being him. So it’s great to see him running already and we are counting the days.”
Count Ginoibli among those hoping Parker can beat the four weeks the medical staff originally predicted he’d be out.
