Tony Parker has a broken rib according to Buck Harvey of the San Antonio Express-News.
According to the piece by Harvey “[Parker] has a broken rib, courtesy of an Austin Daye collision in practice.”
The injury does not seem to have significantly affected Tony Parker as the point guard has played through it up to this point, appearing in all 16 of the San Antonio Spurs’ games this season.
The piece by Harvey does have a tone that suggests the injury is recent, evident by the explanation it offers as to why Parker did not have a great game on Sunday.

Tony Parker only scored nine points on 3-of-10 shooting in the Spurs win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday, 111-89.
Moving forward, it appears Parker will continue to play through the injury as Harvey writes “[Parker] thinks things will work out, including his sore rib.” For now, San Antonio Spurs fans can only hope Tony Parker’s rib injury is not serious and will not cause him to miss extended time.
Parker is expected to miss tonight’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers, but, that is not too troubling since the 76ers are win-less this season.
