Tony Parker one hit from surgery
This goes back to august 22, san antonio express-news: Spurs physician David Schmidt "told me if I get hit again on the finger, I'll probably need surgery," Parker said. Cleveland guard Larry Hughes was sidelined for three months last season after having surgery to repair his broken right middle finger. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, Parker said, "would kill me if I hurt it again and had to miss three months."
The Spurs begin training camp in France in a little less than six weeks, and Parker is hopeful he'll be ready by then. Because the fracture is on his shooting hand, he won't be able to work much with shooting coach Chip Engelland until the splint is removed
