The tough fight for the Spurs just got tougher.

After a nice game two rebound from the embarrassing opening, the Spurs got some horrendous news from the win.

Tony Parker, the Spurs starting point guard, sprained his ankle in the third quarter and will miss the rest of the season.

His injury snaps an NBA record 221 straight games in the postseason, and could mean the end of a career for Parker.

He was a stalwart on the Spurs championship rosters, and has flirted with the idea of retirement over years past.

Here’s hoping we haven’t seen the last of Parker, and here’s to a speedy recovery.
