Tony Parker injury: Spurs star goes down holding his left knee

Parker was carried off the court by his teammates.

Tony Parker fell to the floor clutching his left knee in the fourth quarter of Game 2 between the San Antonio Spurs and the Houston Rockets. Parker laid on the ground as play continued until the Spurs regained possession and called timeout.

As play stopped, the home fans in San Antonio chanted Parker’s name.

The play happened as Parker drove on Houston’s Patrick Beverley and missed a floater. It was a non-contact injury. His teammates carried him off the floor.

Parker had 18 points and four assists at the time of the injury with the Spurs leading. His play in this game was a big reason why San Antonio went on to win 121-96 and tie the series at 1-1.

Kawhi Leonard was the star for the Spurs in Game 2, but there’s no doubt San Antonio will need Parker going forward. He didn’t return in the game and will have an MRI on Thursday, according to the team.

Game 3 of the Spurs-Rockets series is Friday.
