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.
“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.”
