San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker has a ruptured left quadriceps tendon and will miss the remainder of the playoffs, the team announced Thursday.

The Spurs said a timeline for Parker‘s return would be determined at a later date.


 

Parker, 34, had an MRI after suffering the injury during the Spurs‘ 121-96 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.

 

With 8:52 left in the fourth quarter, He immediately clutched at his left knee after a driving floater over Patrick Beverley and collapsed to the court, where he lay motionless for several minutes.

 

He rose to his feet but was unable to put any pressure on his left leg, so he was carried off the court by rookie guard Dejounte Murray and center Dewayne Dedmon.

Said coach Gregg Popovich after the game: “It’s not good.”

 

Houston will host Game 3 of the best-of-seven Western Conference semifinals on Friday night.
