Parker will be sidelined for Saturday's game against the Suns for injury management purposes.

EDGE Analysis

Parker missed the first month-plus of the season while recovering from a torn quad. So, understandably, the team will continue to exercise caution with their veteran point guard, holding him out periodically. In his absence, Patty Mills and Dejounte Murray will likely absorb most of his minutes at point guard.

Parker recorded seven points (3-5 FG, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and three assists over 19 minutes Monday in a win over the Pistons.

EDGE Analysis

Parker returned to the starting lineup after sitting out of Sunday's game to rest. Parker has played in just three games this season after starting the season with a quad injury and has yet to play more than 20 minutes in a game. The Spurs have a busy week, with four games in six days, so Parker could potentially sit out another game this week as he is still easing his way back into the rotation.

Parker will sit out Sunday's game against the Thunder for rest, Jabari Young of San Antonio Express-News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parker has played in each of the last three games after missing the entire start of the season with a quad injury. However, with the Spurs heading into a back-to-back set, they'll give him the night off Sunday in order to avoid excessive strain on the previous injury. That means Patty Mills and Dejounte Murray should see elevated roles at point guard, though only a temporary uptick in value, as Parker should be back in the lineup for Monday's tilt with the Pistons.

Parker will face a minutes restriction of around 15 minutes over the next two-to-three games, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parker made his return to action Monday night against Dallas, replacing Patty Mills in the starting five and playing 14 minutes. He finished withs six points (3-7 FG) and four assists, while notching a plus/minus rating of plus-nine. Expect Parker to remain limited through at least the rest of the week, which includes a pair of home-and-home matchups with the Grizzlies.

Parker (quad) will start at point guard for Monday's matchup with the Mavericks, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was announced earlier Monday that Parker would be making his season debut, though it now appears he'll also instantly jump into the starting five at point guard. The fact that Parker has missed the first month-plus of the season recovering from a torn quad likely means he'll only see a handful of minutes, so he's not exactly an attractive fantasy option. With Parker available and starting, Patty Mills will head back to the bench and should see a decline in his role, while Dejounte Murray should see less minutes as well.

Parker (quad) said he may be on a minutes limit Monday against the Mavericks, Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Perhaps the bigger story here is that Parker confirmed he'll make his season debut after missing the first month-plus of the regular season following a lengthy recovery from a torn quad. The veteran said he's unsure if he'll face a minutes restriction Monday, but whether or not that's the case, Parker isn't likely to immediately see significant minutes. Even when fully healthy last season, Parker rarely saw more than 30 minutes in a game and was often capped in the low-to-mid 20s. Parker's return could cut into the playing time of both Dejounte Murray and Patty Mills, so how coach Gregg Popovich uses the three point guard is certainly something to keep an eye on, from a fantasy perspective.

Parker (quad) said he plans to make his season debut Monday against the Mavericks, Marc Spears of The Undefeated reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Spurs have been handling Parker with care as he works back from a torn quad, but after working with the team's G-League affiliate for the last few weeks, the veteran is poised to make his return to NBA action. Parker, who has not played since the Western Conference Semifinals, will likely be integrated slowly, and it's no guarantee that he'll return to a starting role right away.

Parker (quad) is another few weeks away from a return, Tom Orsborn of San Antonio Express-News reports. "Tony is at the point where he has been going five on five and that sort of thing. He's not totally confident. It will be a few more weeks. But he's definitely going in the right direction, and so is Kawhi. It's just been taking a little bit longer."

EDGE Analysis

Parker has been practicing with the Spurs G-League affiliate, the Austin Spurs, as he continues to work through his rehab. According to coach Popovich, Parker will need a few more weeks before being cleared, so it seems likely he'll be out until late November at the earliest. Still, the fact that Parker is going through five-on-five work is encouraging and it appears he's finally nearing the end of his recovery from the ruptured quad he suffered in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Rockets last season.

Parker (quad) was recalled from the G-League's Austin Spurs on Tuesday, Paul Garcia of TheSportsDaily.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parker was with the Austin Spurs once again to practice and rehabilitate. While it still remains unclear as to when he'll make his NBA return, there hasn't been any word of a setback, which is encouraging.

Parker (quad) was assigned to the Austin Spurs of the G-League on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Parker has already spent some time with the G-League Spurs as he works back from a torn quad, and in all likelihood this latest assignment will be a brief one. It remains unclear exactly when Parker might return to an NBA floor, but the fact that he's able to practice, even if it's in the G-League, is an encouraging sign.
