Found April 06, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker wasn’t himself Thursday night when the team took on the Oklahoma City Thunder. He’s been banged up for much of the season – dealing with a bevy of injuries – and coach Gregg Popovich is “very concerned,” according to Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talk.After scoring two points on 1-of-6 shooting over the first three quarters of Thursday’s contest against OKC, Parker was removed from the game by Popovich. After the game, the coach recounted the situation, and told reporters that his fear is the veteran is dealing with tendonitis.“I saw him come across half court actually limping at one time, so that’s when we pulled him,” Popovich said. “I said ‘Tony, you’ve got to stop, so we can figure out what it is.’ He just couldn’t go. My feeling is tendonitis, something in his shins or whatever, from the way it looked on the court, but I don’t know,” said Popovich, who described himself “very concerned” about his star guard’s health. “We thought he had just kind of recovered from his ankle, so this was something new tonight with his leg,” Popovich said. “I just don’t know what it is right now.”Considering the language Popovich used, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Parker take some time off before the playoffs arrive.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");
