After suffering many injuries this past season with the San Antonio Spurs, Tony Parker will not play for France in the World Championships in Turkey this summer.
“This means that from the month of August, I will work in Los Angeles to prepare for next season,” Parker said. “They want to see me at my best during the recovery. For them, it is impossible that I play with the France team after all my health concerns this year.”
Indeed Parker dealt with numerous injuries this past season. It even affected his game as his numbers dropped from the 2008-2009 to the 2009-2010 NBA season.
Spurs nation breathes a sigh of relief.
