The Scoop:You better believe that that Spurs are going to be cautious with him, and we wouldn't expect to see Parker back before he was 100 percent. Owners will have no choice but to be patient, and in the meantime Cory Joseph will continue to start and is worth a look in most leagues for short-term value.
The Scoop:This is just a reminder so owners can have a backup plan ready in time for Wednesday's tip-off. Cory Joseph is the obvious beneficiary in Parker's absence while Marco Belinelli and Manu Ginobili will see increase workloads in place of Leonard. We will update Leonard as needed and he is simply dealing with a sore hand and should be considered day-to-day.
The Scoop:Parker currently doesn't have a timetable to return, so Joseph should start for the foreseeable future. In his last start for the Spurs, Joseph tallied 12 points, five boards, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes. He should also be in line for a few more assists on Wednesday, so this kind of production is worthy in most leagues.
The Scoop:The Spurs are always going to be extra cautious with their aging veterans, and Cory Joseph will slide into the starting lineup with Parker sidelined. Parker's injury doesn't seem too serious, but there is currently no timetable set for his return. Joseph will sustain some short-term value as long as Parker is sidelined, and will make for a nice plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
