PARIS -- Spurs guard Tony Parker has a sprained ankle and injured thigh after colliding with an Austrian player during a recent basketball game.
Parker is unlikely to be available to play for France in Thursday's game in Paris against Hungary in Eurobasketball 2009, according to sports daily L'Equipe.
TNT analyst David Aldridge reports the Spurs are calling it a "mild sprain" of the ankle.
The Spurs' star hurt his right thigh and ankle in a collision with Stjepan Stazic in a game Friday. Parker issued a statement saying he was hit in his thigh and turned his ankle.
The statement also said tests on Saturday showed no sign of ligament tears or other serious complications, and that he could resume training later in the week.
