Ankle Sprain Knocks Tony Parker Out

by January 28, 2010

According to Parker, he’ll only be out a few games: “The Spurs won’t know until today or Friday how long Tony Parker will be out with another left ankle sprain, but Manu Ginobili offered a hint. ‘Tony said it wasn’t so bad, but he will probably miss a couple of games,’ said Ginobili, one of three Spurs who will be asked to fill in at the point until the All-NBA guard returns. Parker’s ankle rolled as he drove to the basket with 2:29 remaining in the third quarter of the Spurs’ 105-90 victory over the Atlanta Hawks at the AT&T Center. X-rays taken at the arena were negative, but a timetable for Parker’s return won’t be established until he is re-examined by the team’s medical staff.”
