When Tony Parker sprained his ankle he was supposed to be out for a month (although the buzz was always it could be shorter than that).

How about 20 days?

Parker could be back in the Spurs lineup Friday night against the Jazz, tweets Jeff McDonald of the Express News.

Coach Gregg Popovich also said it was possible Parker would play Friday.

Without Parker the Spurs have gone right on winning and have a 2.5 game lead over the Thunder in the West for the best record (they are 1.5 back of the Heat for best record overall).

Before he went down Parker was playing at a level that had him in the top five MVP conversation. Put him back in the lineup, move Cory Joseph back to the bench and the Spurs get that much more dangerous. This is a contender, people.

    Obviously, they’re rushing Tony back, so we can end MIAMI’s streak. Let’s GOOOOO! Spurs ALL DAY!!!

    They will have to work him in slowly but now is a good time to start if he is ready. Brutal stretch of the schedule coming up for the Spurs.

    Only play if you are 100 percent, my friend. no lingering junk in playoffs!

      Lingering junk is rarely a good thing, playoffs or no.

      I’d say get your junk straightened out before hitting the court, period.

    This dude is key to the western conference playoffs. If he’s limited or gets re-injured, it means a world of difference.
