Spurs coach Gregg Popovich offered a further update on injured Tony Parker before Sunday’s game, describing his strained left hamstring as “very painful” but saying that the six-time All-Star should be back in the near future.

“He saw the doctor with the MRI, and it’s basically going to be his confidence level, how he feels in a couple of workouts,” Popovich said. “But so far, the MRI looks good, but he’s got some (swelling) in there. It’s very painful. We’ll just see how his body works through that. But it’s not going to be a very long time. These four days (off) were very important for him.”
