Tony Parker Will Miss Four Weeks After MRI Shows Grade 2 Ankle Sprain

Sacramento Kings  v San Antonio SpursSAN ANTONIO — San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker will be out for about a month with a left ankle sprain.

Parker, the team’s leading assist man, injured the ankle in the third quarter of Friday night’s 130-102 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

The team announced Saturday afternoon that an MRI showed Parker had a Grade 2 left ankle sprain, and will be out for “approximately four weeks.”

The 30-year-old point guard closed out February averaging 26.1 points and 8.3 assists and had shot 54 percent from the field.

On Friday night, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said Parker was “playing better than any other point guard in the league” this year, and that the team would miss him if absent for an extended amount of time.
