by August 27, 2013

According to the French National Team‘s director, Patrick Beesley, Tony Parker did not suffer a serious right knee injury during an exhibition game on Monday. An MRI this morning in Paris assuaged fears. Here’s a translated Basket USA report: “The tests confirmed this morning that there was nothing serious with Tony Parker’s knee,’ said Patrick Beesley. […] ‘Tony Parker needed to play yesterday to build confidence and gain momentum. We will continue to work on our defense. We’ll also have to find our offensive balance. What needs to be done against Spain is at a whole other level compared to previous games. There is still room for improvement.’ Parker is optimistic. ‘After the MRI this morning I will follow proper care. It doesn’t affect preparations for the next game preparation.'”
