Tony Parker Suffers Mild Hamstring Strain; Unlikely to Play Saturday
Tony Parker suffered a mild hamstring injury in the third quarter of the San Antonio Spurs 107-101 road victory over the Memphis Grizzlies.
Parker did not return to the game and is unlikely to play Saturday night when the San Antonio Spurs take on the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News.
Pop says it is not likely Parker (hamstring) plays tomorrow against Minny.

Although Tony Parker did not return to the game against Memphis, he did play well in the time he was on the floor, particularly scoring-wise. While Parker was limited to about 22 minutes, he was still able to finish the game with 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting.
The news surrounding this injury comes shortly after it was revealed Parker is also suffering from a broken/bruised rib.

The injuries continue to line up for San Antonio as the Spurs are still without point guard Patty Mills and center Tiago Splitter.
The hope is that this strain is only mild and Tony Parker will be able to go in the Spurs game following the Timberwolves game which is on Tuesday in Utah.
Although San Antonio’s schedule is relatively easy until about December 15th, Parker is an integral part to this team and the Spurs need him to win games.
