Tony Parker suffers ankle sprain, going to be out “a while”

Mar 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

That wasn’t pretty.

The Spurs have the ability to keep winning when anybody misses time, but this is going to be another whole new level of challenge — Tony Parker sprained his ankle late in the third quarter and had to be helped off the court. He didn’t return.

How bad is it? Here’s the money quote, from Spurs blog 48 Minutes of Hell.

“He’ll be out a while. It was a good one,” Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said after the game.

As in expect him to be out weeks.

Parker is averaging 21.1 points her game on 53.4 percent shooting, with 7.6 assists a game thrown on top. He’s got a PER of 24.5 and is in the top five (if not top three) for the MVP race.

It’s going to be a pretty big drop off down to Patrick Mills and Nando De Carlo.

    Looks like the Thunder just punched their ticket to the Finals. Spurs must have Parker @ 100%….

    Patty Mills will step up and surprise a lot of teams. It’s his time to shine and this kid can do it! He’s not Parker, but he could be a starter in many of the NBA teams.

      Go patty mills!!!!!! Just kidding.. Get off the bandwagon. He’s a good player and has had some explosive games but he’s behind nando de colo on the depth chart. Starting on many teams? Do you know how many good to great pg’s there are in today’s game? He’s 3rd to 4th string on the depth chart when Gary Neal is healthy.

    Just wanted to add to the Patty Mills propaganda not only is he a great player but having met him during the Olympics can say he is truly a great guy, hope he steps up and surprises a lot of teams and fans with his potential he can really cause some problems

    Fortunately for the Spurs, they’re the best team in the league at handing the loss of their best player, have the best record in the league, are the best passing team in the league (had 34 assists last night w/out Parker), and he will be back before Kurt’s interpretation of Pop’s use of “a while”.

    Nando de Carlo? Serious?
