Tony Parker to Reportedly Miss Rest of Season with Leg Injury


Well this isn't the news we were all hoping for.

San Antonio point guard Tony Parker is reportedly expected to sit out the rest of the Spurs' playoff run after sustaining a left leg injury during Wednesday night's game against the Houston Rockets.

The Frenchman suffered the injury after a missed floater over Rockets' guard Patrick Beverley. Parker came down hard on his left leg, clutching his knee and not getting up while play continued. He had to be carried off to the locker room by his teammates, and would not return to the court.

On Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski‏ of The Vertical reported the Spurs expects Parker will need season-ending surgery on the injury. The official MRI results are not yet available though.

It is unknown how Gregg Popovich and the Spurs will handle the injury. It is expected that Australian guard Patty Mills will slot into the starting point guard spot in Parker's absence.
