San Antonio Spurs' Parker out for rest of playoffs with knee injury

San Antonio Spurs' Parker out for rest of playoffs with knee injury

He also became the fourth player in National Basketball Association history (after Ray Allen, Reggie Miller, Manu Ginobili) to make 300 playoff three-pointers.

Manu Ginobili said Wednesday night that Parker was in significant pain and unable to bear weight on his left leg.

In the midst of a resounding and redemptive victory, the Spurs' celebration came to an abrupt stop when Tony Parker was carried off the court with what appeared to be a serious left leg injury.

After the Wednesday game, before the diagnosis was even out, San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich already said Parker's injury is "not good", according to NBA.com. Although he only had seven points for the night, it was when he provided offense that mattered, making sure the Spurs kept their lead. All-Star guard Kyle Lowry scored 20 points but injured his left ankle in the third quarter and was out of the game for good by the fourth.

Game 3 is Friday at 8:30 CT in Houston and will be broadcast on ESPN.

Australia to repatriate non-refugee asylum seekers
An unspecified number of asylum-seekers will be relocated to a transit centre, one refugee quoted the officials as having said. So far, there are no plans to close Australia's other offshore detention facility in the island nation of Nauru.


NOTES: Spurs C/F Pau Gasol got his first start since January 17 in Game 2 on Wednesday. "It's hard to see him limping and hurting now, and you kind of know we're not going to see him anytime soon".

"So, that's a tough blow".

"Besides that we're going to miss having him around".

We'll have up-to-the-minute scoring and stats here throughout the game. However, being an effective two-way player can leave you vulnerable on the offensive end. At first I thought it was just a Charley Horse. "That is when we got anxious".

Patty Mills will likely play a much larger role with the injury to Parker.

People magazine reported that the 19-year-old mother claimed that her baby crying woke her up at 5:30 a.m on Sunday morning. According to Shyrock's Facebook page, the teen mom also has an older daughter whom she had in November 2015, aged 16 or 17.


Asked if he had spoken to Parker after the game, Mills replied: "Gave him a hug". However, the Spurs had attained 65 points, nearly double the amount they had in the first half of Game 1.

Leonard added 26 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, while Pau Gasol totaled 12 points and nine rebounds. His 4.5 assists average was also his lowest since 2001-02. The teams shot a combined 15 for 25 in the opening six minutes, including 5 for 9 on 3-pointers.

If Parker is out for the rest of the playoffs, I'm not predicting that San Antonio won't win another game.

"He has the presence just like T.D". But he has that presence on the floor, especially when he's on the break and the ball's in his hands.

After a big loss in the series opener, the Spurs hit back in emphatic fashion via a 121-96 defeat of the Rockets at AT&T Center. The shooting guard's supporting cast was deadly from behind the arc as the team made 22 of their 50 three-point attempts. "He's been tremendously successful and efficient".
