Spurs point guard Tony Parker came off the bench Sunday against the Indiana Pacers for the first time in his career in the regular season, and the first time since the 2010 playoffs. Parker said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich told him that "he thought it was time." "I was like, ‘Oh, no problem,'" Parker said. "Just like Manu [Ginobili], just like Pau [Gasol], that day's going to come. And if Pop sees something that is good for the team, I'll try to do my best."
Victor Oladipo scored 19 points and the Indiana Pacers defeated San Antonio 94-86 on Sunday night, snapping the Spurs' 14-game home winning streak.

When asked about it, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich ruled out the possibility of Kawhi Leonard missing the rest of the season due to his quadriceps injury. Leonard is out indefinitely.

A season riddled with injuries still has Kawhi Leonard eligible for a super max extension this summer even if he does not earn All-NBA status during the 2017-18 season. Leonard is eligible based on earning All-NBA in 2015-16 and 2016-17. Leonard, who will turn 27 in June, is eligible for a five-year $219M extension with a starting salary of $37.8M in 2019-20. San Antonio can bypass extension talks this summer and wait until Leonard is a possible free agent in 2019. However, Leonard would have to earn All-NBA during the 2018-19 season to become super max eligible. Leonard is under contract next season at $20.1M and has a player option of $21.3M in 2019-20.
Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, a two-time NBA All-Star, is out indefinitely as he rehabs a quad injury that cost him the first 27 games of the season.
Dennis Schroder scored 26 points, Ersan Ilyasova added 20 and the Atlanta Hawks held off the San Antonio Spurs in the closing seconds to win 102-99 on Monday.
