Parker is expected to continue coming off the bench while Dejounte Murray starts at point guard, Michael C. Wright of ESPN.com reports. It was a surprising development when Murray was announced as the starter Sunday, and the expectation was that Parker was going to be rested. Parker, however, ended up playing 20 minutes off the bench, and it looks like that will continue. Oddly enough, Parker had his most productive game since late December despite being a reserve, as he posted 12 points, three rebounds and five assists. Murray, Parker and Patty Mills will likely all still take on similar workloads moving forward, making them all fairly unreliable fantasy options for now.

Parker (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Lakers, Tom Orsborn of San Antonio Express-News reports. Parker came into Thursday with a doubtful designation, so this was the expected move all along. Look for the Spurs to remain as cautious as possible with their veteran point guard and it wouldn't be surprising if he missed more time considering coach Gregg Popovich's conservative approach. With Parker out Dejounte Murray and Patty Mills should see expanded roles, with Murray being the expected replacement in the starting five.
