Parker has battled a variety of injuries, including a shin contusion, groin strain and lower back spasms, for more than a month and said on Tuesday he understood coach Gregg Popovich's decision to sit him "for the foreseeable future." "The main thing with Pop, he doesn't want me to play at 50 per cent, 60 per cent," Parker, a six-time All-Star who has won three NBA championship rings with San Antonio, said at a shootaround ahead of Tuesday's game against the Clippers. "He wants me to get all my little stuff healed. Next time I come back on the court he wants me to be 100 per cent." Eurosport
