SAN ANTONIO (AP) -San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker sprained his left ankle during practice with the French national team this week and is returning to the U.S. to be examined.
The Spurs said Parker will begin rehabilitation after an exam Friday and will rejoin the French national team when he gets medical clearance.
Parker, the NBA finals MVP after the Spurs swept the Cleveland Cavaliers, pulled out of the Basketball without Borders event in Europe next week.
Last August, Parker broke his right index finger while playing for France in preparation for the world championships.
