Tony Parker PG SA 10 Days
Parker played a full load of minutes in Tuesday's win over the Denver Nuggets, finishing with 18 points (8-16 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and seven assists in 32 minutes.
Parker played only 23 minutes in Sunday's game against the Utah Jazz, so it was good to see him play over 30 minutes Tuesday. Considering the Spurs have back-to-back games on Thursday and Friday, make sure to monitor the situation closely as there's a good possibility that coach Gregg Popovich will either limit Parker's minutes or hold him out completely in one of the games. We'll know more as Thursday nears.

Parker (hamstring) saw limited action again Friday, scoring seven points (3-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt) in 22 minutes of action, registering just one assist and one rebound.
After missing five games, Parker played 13 minutes Tuesday, and Patty Mills still played more minutes Friday than Parker. When he's healthy, Parker is a great fantasy option, averaging 15.6 points and 5.1 assists this year, but Parker has missed 13 games since Dec. 1.

Parker (hamstring) may only play limited minutes again Friday, the Express-News reports.
Parker returned to action for the Spurs on Tuesday but only played 13 minutes in the first half and was held out for the entire second half as coach Gregg Popovich wanted to be conservative working Parker back from his hamstring injury. While it seems Parker should play in both halves Friday, there's no guarantee he approaches his season average of 30 minutes per game. In the five games Parker played in December while struggling with the injury, he averaged just 26 mpg, which may be a good indicator of the number of minutes he could play Friday.

Parker (hamstring) returned to the starting lineup after a five-game absence and finished with three points (0-3 FG, 3-4 FT), two assists and two turnovers in just under 13 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Pistons.
Parker had missed 10 out of the Spurs' last 12 games with a nagging hamstring issue, but was finally able to return Tuesday. His time on the court was very limited though, as he was held to less than 13 minutes of playing time. As long as he didn't re-aggravate the injury, he could be in line for an increase in playing time for their next outing as the Spurs don't play again until Friday, although considering it's the first of back-to-back games for the team, there's also a very high possibility he could be held out of that matchup. We should have a better indication on Popovich's plan for Parker within the next few days.

Parker (hamstring) will start Tuesday against the Pistons, Mike Monroe of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Parker has missed the Spurs' last five games, and 10 of the last 12 overall, while battling a nagging hamstring injury. He'll give it a go Tuesday but could be a risky daily play in his first game back, as the Spurs could impose a minutes limit. Regardless, Parker's return to the starting lineup means Cory Joseph will shift to the bench.

Saturday's win over Washington marked Parker's fifth straight absence and his 10th in the Spurs' last 12 games while he continues to battle a nagging hamstring issue. Coach Gregg Popovich has not closed the door on the possibility of Parker returning Tuesday, and more information should be available following shootaround. If Parker sits, Cory Joseph, who scored 19 points against the Wizards, will continue to start at point guard.

Parker will miss a third straight game, and the veteran remains without a return timetable as he continues to nurse a nagging hamstring injury. He should be evaluated on a game-to-game basis at this point, so consider Parker questionable for Wednesday's matchup with Anthony Davis and the Pelicans. In his absence, Cory Joseph should continue to start at point guard with Patty Mills contributing off the bench.
