Tony Parker out for 'foreseeable future' with a 'variety of maladies'
San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker is out for the "foreseeable future" with a "variety of maladies", according to Gregg Popovich.
The San Antonio Spurs are not shy about resting their star players because they always have an eye on the process of being ready for a postseason run. We've seen them sit their best players under the spotlight of a nationally televised game and even list Tim Duncan's reason for missing a game as "old." With the stretch run starting up after this past weekend's All-Star break, the Spurs are going to be careful with point guard Tony Parker.
Gregg Popovich told the media Tuesday that Parker is out "for the foreseeable future" because of his various injuries.

The Spurs' point guard is dealing with calf, groin, and back bumps and bruises.
Parker has played in 47 of the 53 games for the Spurs this season and was named to his sixth All-Star team for this past weekend. He played 11 minutes during the All-Star Game Sunday night. He's averaging 17.7 points and 6.2 assists in 30.9 minutes per game on the season and shooting 50.1 percent from the field.
