SAN ANTONIO (AP) -The San Antonio Spurs canceled practice Saturday, a day after All-Star guard Tony Parker sprained his left ankle and was expected to miss at least two weeks.
Parker was injured during a 99-83 loss to the Miami Heat on Friday, two nights after scoring a career-high 55 points against the Timberwolves. He was expected to have an MRI examination on Saturday.
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Friday that he expected Parker to miss two to four weeks. X-rays taken Friday were negative, but Popovich said Parker's ankle showed plenty of swelling.
The Spurs are 1-4 and off to their worst start since going 1-5 in 1996. They play Tuesday at home against the New York Knicks.
Parker will be replaced in the lineup by either rookie George Hill or 12th-year veteran Jacques Vaughan. Hill took Parker's place after the injury.
The 33-year-old Vaughan was inactive, though no injury was listed. He dressed but did not play Wednesday at Minnesota. He averaged 10 minutes in the Spurs' first four games this season.
diana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis played 10 minutes after Parker left Friday and missed three shots from the floor but scored one point, had one assist and a turnover.
