Spurs' Tony Parker will miss two games

The San Antonio Spurs lost to the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday by the score of 115-92. The loss was only the 5th loss of the season for the Spurs, who are in first place in the Southwest Division.  What is more concerning than the blowout loss is the bruised left shin sustained by point guard Tony Parker

Marc Stein,  NBA reporter/correspondent for ESPN, tweeted about Parker's injury and status.
The injury is similar to the one that kept Eric Bledsoe out for ten games.  Parker will miss at least Wednesday's game at Phoenix and Thursday's at Golden State.  The Spurs could go with Patty Mills, Nando De Colo or Cory Joseph in Parker's absence, but the best bet is probably Mills.  A fifth year player out of Saint Mary's, Mills is averaging 7.8 points in nearly 16 minutes per game.

Parker, in his 13th NBA season, all with the Spurs. Last year he averaged 20.3 points and 7.6 assists per game.  In 23 games this season, Paker's shooting a career high 40.7 percent from 3-point range and averaging 17.5 points per game.  He's started all but 13 of his 895 career games and has an average of 17.1 points and 6 assists per game.
