Parker Misses Rest of Game Against Pacers Monday, March 7   Parker did not return to the game, and the Spurs announced the injury was a left-toe contusion.

The 33-year-old Parker has missed just five games this season due to injury or rest, and he was averaging 12.4 points and 5.1 assists coming into the game, which the Spurs eventually lost, 99-91.

Although Parker is past his prime and his numbers are down from previous years, he is one of the veteran leaders on a San Antonio team that is nipping on the heels of the Golden State Warriors for the top spot in the Western Conference.

The injury follows back-to-back two-point games for Parker, and it could be a bad sign for the 53-9 Spurs. However, the good news is San Antonio is 5-0 without the guard on the floor this season.

If Parker misses any more time, look for seven-year veteran backup Patty Mills to take his place in the lineup.
