BREAKING NEWS: Tony Parker Is Out 1 Month

Postby Kobe8Fan on Sat Mar 02, 2013 11:47 am

Spurs guard Tony Parker underwent an MRI examination this morning in San Antonio. The MRI confirmed that Parker has a Grade 2 left ankle sprain. He is expected to be out for approximately four weeks. The injury occurred in the third quarter of last night's Spurs-Kings game.

Additionally, Spurs forward Boris Diaw (low back strain) is out for tomorrow’s game vs. Detroit. Guard Gary Neal (tightness, left calf) and forward Stephen Jackson (sprained right ankle) are listed as doubtful.

Wow. I wonder how this'll affect the standings.

I doubt they fall, but it's possible.

Makes you wonder if they didn't rest Tony for some of these games....

They are up 3 games in the standings right now. They're a relatively deep team ran by the best coach in the NBA, IMO. I think they'll stay as the #1 seed, and if they lose any ground, it will be minimal. The situation could be worse, though. The injury could have been worse in which case he would have been out longer or the timing of it; for example, say this happened in the PO's in the first round. WTS, it still hurts, but they'll be fine...

I think they should be fine, at least they have time for him to get better and get some rest before the playoffs start.

1 assist in each game in the 2 games he played that parker was out. wouldn't say that's a must add. unless you're looking for points and he gets at least 10 shots a game.

Spurs are 7-7 without him. I imagine Pop would've looked for opportunities to rest him over the next 50+ days as possible considering their record and his end of season tendencies. They'll drop some games, but should be able to maintain their seeding.

i don't know... .500 without him. i think okc can catch them. as for whether it matters long term, again, don't know... i think it depends on whom you face in the first round. if the lakers don't make it, i don't think it matters. neither team should fear houston, gs, or utah. and in a series between the two, i'm not sure home court matters that much.

A severe ankle injure to Parker is pretty significant. His entire game is predicated on cutting and his first step..... both will be compromised even when he comes back. This could be the de-railer for SA this year. He is the dominant player on that team these days and his presence will be missed more than the other "big three".

So you think we have a better shot at taking out the Spurs than we do the Thunder?

Tough news for Parker and the Spurs. Tony has been unbelievable this year, he's a legit MVP candidate, and maybe the best point guard in the league.
