Tony Parker Temporarily Knocked Out of Game 2

Stephen D. Lasday, DPM Podiatrist Sarasota and Bradenton

Last week, San Antonio Spurs superstar Tony Parker was facing the possibility of sitting out the first game of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat due to his injured ankle. His ankle has an extensive medical history this season, unfortunately. Parker sprained the ankle in Game 4 and aggravated it in Game 5 in the NBA Conference Finals. And then he sprained his already injured ankle in Game 6…ouch!

Well, it looks like his ankle held up fairly well in Game 1 and the first half of Game 2. Unfortunately, he did end up leaving Game 2 for a few minutes, but it was NOT because of his ankle. It was because of this foul…check out this “errant elbow”:

Yeah…that was pretty flagrant. Well, at least it wasn’t his ankle.

Tony Parker went to the line and missed both shots (another ouch!). He shared: “(Pain from the blow) definitely affected me but I’m a little frustrated, should have made them.”

Spurs lost. The finals are tied up 1-1. Stay tuned…
