San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker will miss the team’s next two games with a shin injury suffered in last night’s loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, the team announced.

Parker was injured in the third quarter of the Spurs’ 115-92 loss to the Clippers and was diagnosed with right shin contusion. He finished with eight points and six assists in 26 minutes.

The team said he will be re-evaluated after games against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday and the next night against the Golden State Warriors. His status for Saturday’s night home game against the Oklahoma City Thunder will be determined then.
