Spurs lose Parker for the season


Spurs: Parker had surgery on Friday to fix the ruptured quadriceps tendon in his left leg.

Toronto Coach Dwane Casey said Lowry is being listed as questionable to play in Friday's Game 3 of the Raptors' Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Tomorrow they are going to tell us. He swiped the ball away, leapt out of bounds and tossed it backward to save it and then stripped Green on the following possession to set a strong defensive tone. His organization of the team is really important, understanding time and score, what's going on on the court. Look for Houston coach Mike D'Antoni to try and pick up the pace and shot attempts in Game 3.

The Spurs said in an injury update on Friday that the 34-year-old underwent an operation to fix his left quadriceps tendon in a procedure carried out by team physician David Schmidt. Houston demolished the Spurs with a 27-point victory in the opener before San Antonio returned serve with a 25-point beat down of the Rockets in Game 2.

Most likely to get the first crack at replacing Parker in the lineup is veteran Patty Mills, who averaged 9.5 points and 3.5 assists per game during the regular season and contributed seven points Wednesday against the Rockets.

"What he brings to their team, I don't know how you replace that", Ariza said. "They might just stay big, or they could go with another little guy". It makes me squirm even thinking about tearing the quad.

San Antonio's victory celebration was tempered, however, by an injury to guard Tony Parker. Rookie guard Dejounte Murray, Kyle Anderson and Jonathan Simmons should get more of a chance to prove themselves as well.

"I haven't thought about that much", Popovich said when asked about what worked in Game 2.
