Parker reaggravates ankle sprain
DALLAS -- Tony Parker sat out San Antonio's game against Dallas on Wednesday night after aggravating his sprained left ankle, and the Spurs also lost guard Manu Ginobili in the first quarter with a strained left groin.
Parker rolled the ankle in a game at Portland on Nov. 6 and sat out the next two games. Parker was back in the lineup Saturday night in a 101-98 loss to Oklahoma City, scoring 17 points in 32 minutes.
Coach Gregg Popovich said Parker had a setback against Oklahoma City.
"He hasn't been able to practice since then," Popovich said.
George Hill started in Parker's place.
Ginobili started and scored two points in eight minutes of the first quarter, then went to the locker room before the start of the second. The Spurs announced that Ginobili was done for the night.
