‘Very concerned’ Popovich Pulls Parker Out
By the fourth quarter of the Spurs’ 100-88 loss at Oklahoma City on Thursday, Gregg Popovich had seen enough of Tony Parker.
“I saw him come across half court actually limping at one time, so that’s when we pulled him,” Popovich said. “I said ‘Tony, you’ve got to stop, so we can figure out what it is.’ He just couldn’t go.”
“We thought he had just kind of recovered from his ankle, so this was something new tonight with his leg,” Popovich said. “I just don’t know what it is right now.”
“My feeling is tendonitis, something in his shins or whatever, from the way it looked on the court, but I don’t know,” said Popovich, who described himself “very concerned” about his star guard’s health.
