Tony Parker hit 13-of-27 shots for a season-high 27 points, six rebounds and eight assists in his return from a sprained ankle on Saturday, when the Spurs fell to the Rockets.
Parker was looking for his shot tonight and the 27 shot attempts were also easily a season high. It would be nice if he'd keep shooting the rock, but given that he plays for Gregg Popovich, nights like this one could be few and far between. He looked quite healthy tonight and should be a safe play going forward.

Tony Parker will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Rockets.
As is usual for the Spurs in a back-to-back set, they skipped the morning shootaround and as such we won't be able to determine Parker's status until just before the tip. If you are in a daily league, stay tuned for an update closer to the start of the Spurs-Rockets contest.

Tony Parker will not play against the Magic on Friday due to a sprained ankle.
This is the first we've heard of the injury. Parker played 34 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday, which is above his season average of 30.2 per game. He should be considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Rockets. Plus, the back-to-back set may have been a factor in keeping Parker out. Cory Joseph will get the start despite playing just 5.6 minutes per game this season. Patty Mills has played 16.3 minutes per game while Nando De Colo has logged 9.8 per night, so it will likely be a collective effort.

Tony Parker stated "I feel like I'm in my prime, and my body feels great."
At 31-years-old Parker is averaging a respectable 17.7 points and 6.2 assists, and while these aren't gaudy numbers, Parker is still one of the leagues elite point guards. However, as Popovich prepares his team for another championship run, one can expect a handful of DNP's throughout the season.

Tony Parker shot 8-of-12 from the field for 17 points with two boards, six assists and four turnovers in just 26 minutes on Sunday.
The Spurs were getting open jumpers all game and the Knicks just didn't have the discipline on defense to cover everyone. Parker entered the game up to his usual tricks with averages of 19.3 points and 6.7 assists on 51.1 percent shooting and he's one of the better point guards to own in fantasy as long as Gregg Popovich isn't resting him.

Tony Parker hit 9-of-13 shots on his way to 24 points, six assists, two steals and a block in Tuesday's win over Ty Lawson and the Nuggets.
He's not flashy, nor an overhyped fantasy pick, but he is one of the most efficient, consistent NBA point guards in existence. He's also healthy and hasn't been held back by Gregg Popovich yet, so just keep rolling him out there and watch the stats roll in.

Tony Parker made 6-of-10 of his field goal attempts on Thursday for 17 points with four boards, five assists and one steal in just 20 minutes.
He needs the preseason like he needs glass from a champagne bottle in his eye, but it's nice to see he's looking fresh after a lot of playing time in EuroBasket. Parker is one of the best point guards in the NBA when Coach Pop isn't resting him.
