According to Sportsline.com on Tuesday, the San Antonio Spurs have announced that Tony Parker will see limited action as the team approaches the stretch run of the regular season.

Apparently, Parker is ailing with “calf, groin and back problems.” However, these injuries weren’t enough to keep Tony Parker out of the All Star game. Parker played 11 minutes during the exhibition, and people will start to wonder why he participated in the event.

For one reason, he only played 11 minutes. Gregg Popovich may be resting him during games, but Tony Parker will be getting his workouts in to stay sharp.

It’s no telling when we will see Tony Parker again, but as Popovich stated, he will be out “for the foreseeable future.” The best guess is that Tony Parker will play around 15-20 more games.

San Antonio has 29 games left this season. Tony Parker has played in 47 of the 53 and he’s averaged 30.9 minutes per night. Parker averages 17.7 points and 6.2 assists this year.

The Spurs have fallen three games back in the loss column to Oklahoma City, but San Antonio is still in the running for the second seed in the west. Still, they have a fight on their hands for the rest of the season to stay in the top four.
