During the San Antonio Spurs Friday morning shootaround, coach Gregg Popovich announced that guard Tony Parker will be out for at least a week due to soreness in his right knee.
“I think he will be out for a week or so, and that will be it. He hurt his knee against Golden State. He hyper-extended it and it’s just bruised basically, so we are giving him time to heal.”
Parker remained in San Antonio during the team's trip to Utah trip, and reserve guard Patty Mills will fill his spot for the night.
The 34-year-old Parker has dealt with injuries more frequently the past few years, but this one isn't a serious threat to hampering his season.
Danny Green who has not played a single game this season due to a left quad strain, will also return to the court in one week starting November 9, according to coach Popovich.
The Spurs will play one road game in Utah against the Jazz on Friday before returning home for a three game home stand.
