His subpar, injury-plagued season be damned, Tony Parker joins Boris Diaw and former Spur Nando De Colo among 24 players named to France’s preliminary roster for EuroBasket 2015.

Tony Parker hobbled into the Staples Center on Tuesday, the same as he hobbled out last week. He has a sore ankle and a sore foot and a sore-whatever-else, the Spurs' championship defense hanging by the thread of his aching Achilles tendon. "It's just no fun to not be 100 percent," Parker said. San Antonio Express-News

The San Antonio Spurs listed point guard Tony Parker as questionable Thursday for Friday's Game 3 matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference playoffs due to tightness in his right Achilles tendon. Parker entered the club's Game 2 victory over the Clippers already nursing a twisted left ankle and a bruised left quadriceps, but left Wednesday's game with a little more than five minutes left to play after suffering the Achilles injury. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich couldn't provide an update on Parker's injury Wednesday night, saying "I honestly don't know" when asked about the point guard's condition. The team didn't practice on Thursday. ESPN.com

Late word out of the Spurs' locker room Wednesday night, according to a person briefed on the matter, is that Parker is expected to play in Game 3 on Friday night in San Antonio. But there is legitimate concern within the organization about how effective he will be, and about the injury becoming a recurring problem throughout the series. CBSSports.com

Add right Achilles to the list of injuries sustained thus far by Tony Parker over the first two games of San Antonio's Western Conference playoff series against the Los Angeles Clippers. Parker left with a little more than five minutes left to play Wednesday night in the team's 111-107 overtime win over the Clippers due to tightness in his right Achilles, and his status for Game 3 is uncertain. Parker also tweaked his left ankle during the team's Game 1 loss, in addition to suffering a bruise on his left quadriceps. ESPN.com
