HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – San Antonio Spurs All-Star point guard Tony Parker has suffered yet another injury while toiling for the French national team and is scheduled for an MRI on his right knee, as first reported by the French sports daily L’Equipe.

Parker was injured sometime during his team’s 85-84 exhibition loss to Spain, a game in which he scored 26 of his 29 points after halftime. He reportedly missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer that would have won the game.

The San Antonio Express-News is reporting that the injury does not appear to be serious. But that won’t soothe the fears of Spurs fans who know that they need Parker healthy for the start of training camp and the 2013-14 season.

EuroBasket will run from Sept. 4-22 in Slovenia, but Parker won’t be seeing many of his NBA All-Star brethren there. Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki, Los Angeles Lakers big man Pau Gasol and Chicago Bulls stars Joakim Noah and Luol Deng are among the key names skipping the tournament for various reasons.

Those four battled injury issues at one time or another last season, just as Parker did. But none of them rebounded in the postseason the way Parker did for the Spurs, who were 30 seconds away from winning the NBA title in Game 6 of The Finals against the Miami Heat.

The Spurs’ chances of a Finals return rest on Parker staying healthy and leading a veteran team that does not have a backup point guard capable of replicating his play, even on a temporary basis.

For the Spurs’ sake, the results of Parker’s MRI need to confirm the Express-News’ report that the injury is not serious.

I'd be really surprised if SA is a threat this year. It's common knowledge that the Spurs can't compete two consecutive years.
