As is the case for several of the league’s top teams, the San Antonio Spurs care about the regular season, but of greater important is overall health for the full 2013-14 stretch, including the playoffs. Here’s ESPN.com with an update on Tony Parker:

San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker will be out “for the foreseeable future” with “a variety of maladies,” coach Gregg Popovich said Tuesday.

Parker had been sidelined with stiffness in his lower back but played in Sunday’s All-Star Game, finishing with four points, two rebounds and one assist.

“He doesn’t have a pulled hamstring or anything, but he’s got a lot of little things,” Popovich said.

The Spurs have been mainstays in the playoffs throughout Parker’s career, and he has also played with the French national team in the offseason. Popovich is concerned about the cumulative effect it’s had on Parker.
