Spurs’ Parker misses Pistons game with hip injury

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker missed Sunday’s game against

the Detroit Pistons because of a strained left hip flexor.

Parker, who missed his ninth game of the season, sat out San

Antonio’s Feb. 11 win over Denver with the same injury. He returned

to score 28 points against Indiana on Wednesday, but only had two

points on 1-for-9 shooting Friday in Philadelphia.

Parker is second on the team in scoring and leads the Spurs

in assists.
