Tony Parker Out For One WeekHooped Up | November 7, 2009
Spurs point guard Tony Parker says the sprained ankle that knocked him from Friday nightâ€™s 96-84 loss against the Trail Blazers isnâ€™t as severe as others heâ€™s suffered in his career. Parker missed nine games early last season after spraining the same ankle, and missed a month with the French national team during the summer with a similar injury to his right ankle.
X-rays taken at the Rose Garden were negative, and Parker left the arena after the game under his own power. He is expected to be re-evaluated Saturday after the Spurs return to San Antonio.
