Spurs' Diaw, Parker and Duncan set to return versus Bobcats

The San Antonio Spurs lost to the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday by the score of 103-89. Despite the loss, the Spurs are still 36-14, three games ahead of the Houston Rockets in first place in the Southwest Division. The Spurs played without Tim Duncan (coaches decision), Boris Diaw (food poisoning) and Tony Parker (back). The good news is that all should be ready to play tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats.

Jeff McDonald,  Spurs beat writer for the San Antonio Express-News, tweeted the following on Parker, Diaw and Duncan.
The return of Parker means that Cory Joseph will go back to the bench. Joseph has 18 points, four rebounds, four steals and three assists in 35 minutes against the Nets.

The good news of the return of Diaw, Parker and Duncan may be offset by the possible absence of Tiago Splitter and Marco Belinelli, who are both questionable for tonight's game.

Duncan is in his 17th season out of Wake Forest. He is averaging 15.4 points and ten rebounds per game. Parker, in his 13th NBA season, is averaging 18.1 points and 6.3 assists per game. Diaw is in his 11th NBA season and is averaging 9.5 points on 55.3 percent shooting from the floor.
