Tony Parker will be out for one week after spraining his ankle during the Spurs loss to the Portland Trailblazers. Parker was driving to the lane on Steve Blake when the injury occurred. Good news is X-rays were taken in Portland and were negative.
Parker has had ankle injuries in the past and the most recent was the ankle injury he suffered this summer playing for the French National Team.
Expect George Hill to get more minutes while Parker is out. We saw last year what he did when Parker was injured. He had an impressive stretch of games as a rookie while Parker was out including getting the best of Bulls guard Derrick Rose in Chicago last year.
Here is the video of Parker’s injury.
Please leave us your comments on this injury and what you think on Hill having to now run the team.
