Tony Parker back for the Spurs Sunday against the Mavs
San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker returns to the team Sunday night against the Dallas Mavericks.
After missing the previous five games after the All-Star break with what Gregg Popovich described as a "variety of maladies," San Antonio Spurs' point guard Tony Parker will be back in the lineup Sunday night. As the Spurs take on the Dallas Mavericks at home, Parker returns after a six-game absence to take on the division rival.
Popovich informed the media before the game of Parker's return.
