Popovich says Parker out for 'foreseeable future'

The Sports NetworkFebruary 18, 2014 

Santa Monica, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said Tuesday that point guard Tony Parker will be out "for the foreseeable future" due to "a variety of maladies."

Parker played a little over 11 minutes in Sunday's All-Star Game, finishing with four points and two rebounds. He previously sat out the Spurs' final game before the break to rest a sore lower back.

"He doesn't have a pulled hamstring or anything, but he's got a lot of little things," Popovich said. "Basically a lot of basketball the last three years, all season long, all summer long."

Parker has played with the French national team in the offseason.

In 47 games this season, Parker has averaged 17.7 points and 6.2 assists.
