Tony Parker: (Ankle) Determined To Play Friday Staff

Update: Parker is determined to play Friday against Sacramento, after missing three of the past four games due to various ailments, namely a left ankle sprain, the San Antonio Express-News reports. After Wednesday's loss at Denver, he said, "I'm playing Friday."

Recommendation: Parker's status is not set in stone, as Gregg Popovich ultimately has the final say in whether he takes the court. However, Parker's injuries appear to be subsiding and should in principle allow him to suit up Friday. Nevertheless, consider him day-to-day, with Cory Joseph and Nando De Colo manning the point in his stead.
