LakerAlert: San Antonio Spurs Tony Parker Out Six Weeks


It appears that the San Antonio Spurs’ superstar point guard Tony Parker will be forced to ride the pine for at least six weeks  after breaking a bone in his right hand on Saturday night.

San Antonio guard Tony Parker left Saturday night’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies with a broken bone in his right hand and could miss six weeks.

Parker broke the fourth metacarpal — the bone between the bottom knuckle and the wrist — near the end of the first half and did not return to the game.

Laker Goggles:

If Mr. Longoria is out for the full 42 days, it would mean he would miss the remainder of the regular season, which could ultimately mean their whole year.  Although the Spurs have won four straight, they now have 22 games left in the regular season, with 13 coming on the road.

Pop loves backup George Hill, but he’s no TP and he ain’t gonna kill us off high screen and rolls like Parker would/has.

They currently have a one game lead over Portland for the 7th seed, so it would certainly be better for us to have the Spurs slide down, but more importantly have the Blazers move up and as far away from the 8th spot as possible.

I believe Laker brass and fans alike would prefer to avoid appearing in the Rose Garden this post season.
