The injury was initially expected to keep Parker out for 4 weeks, but the point guard is making an early return. Parker was only out for 8 games, and the Spurs held it together without him, going 6-2 over the stretch.
The Spurs were also able to keep their hold on the top spot in the Western Conference, currently holding a 2.5 game lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
