Gregg Popovich: Tony Parker out for ‘foreseeable future’
San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich says guard Tony Parker is out for the “foreseeable future,” reports Mike Monroe of the San Antonio Express-News
Popovich was evasive regarding what would keep Parker, who played 11 minutes in Sunday’s All-Star Game, off the court, citing a “a variety of maladies.”
The Spurs have a history of giving their aging core of Parker, Ginobili and Duncan extended breaks to rest throughout the season. Parker had been sidelined with lower back pain earlier this month.
The Spurs are scheduled to play the Los Angeles Clippers, Portland Trail Blazers and Phoenix Suns this week as they finish a nine-game road trip.
