Spurs' Tony Parker has surgery on ruptured quad tendon


San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker faces season-ending surgery after being carried off during his team's National Basketball Association playoff win over the Houston Rockets according to multiple U.S. media reports.

"We will have to regroup, reorganize the game plan, the starting five, and the rotations".

Spurs point guard Tony Parker is done for the remainder of the playoffs after he ruptured his left quadriceps tendon late in Wednesday night's Game 2 victory over the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference semifinals, the Spurs confirmed Thursday morning.

Parker's injury puts the Spurs in a hard spot this offseason because they have no cap room to go after a guard, especially with Pau Gasol expected to opt in for $14 million.

Parker did not return after hurting his left leg with 8:43 remaining in the game.

Cavaliers at Raptors, Cleveland leads 2-0. He'll turn 35 in two weeks, and he is entering the final year of his deal with San Antonio. The incident took place when Parker missed a short layup and landed underneath the Rockets' basket. The over/under total for the game is listed at 213.5 points.

Seeing the expressionless face of Parker while lying on the court clutching his knee is a memory I won't forget. The sellout crowd of 18,418 fell silent as teammates Dewayne Dedmon and Dejounte Murray carried Parker off the court and to the training room.

"I just missed shots", Harden said Tuesday night.

SpaceX is usually hyped to tell us all about the payload it's sending to orbit, but this time it doesn't have as much to say. The NRO provides satellite intelligence data for national security and "innovative overhead reconnaissance systems".

Parker is expected to undergo an MRI scan on Thursday. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 30.3 points and 4.6 assists while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 13.5 points and 7.3 rebounds.

Leonard tied his postseason high with 20 points in the first half as the Spurs opened up a 65-55 lead entering the third quarter.

Oklahoma City swingman Andre Roberson often was praised by his coach and teammates for playing suffocating defense on James Harden during their first-round playoff series.

"You know how Pop is", Beverley said.

When asked what stands out in comparison to the performance from the team's 121-96 win in Game 2 over the Rockets, Popovich reiterated his point and replied "Bad offense". Patty Mills will assume point guard duties going forward. He rose to the occasion, at least for one game, with his best scoring effort of the postseason. Only Jordan (109) has more.

"I'm feeling pretty good", James said. He does a great job of getting to the line.

"We were focused", Leonard said. "Now I just have the added time having to wait till Friday night to redeem myself".
