Parker, Duncan, Ginobili out for Bulls game tonight


Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili have been ruled out for the Bulls game tonight, leaving the Spurs without their three biggest stars.

Parker had 29 points and 11 assists in the Spurs' 111-86 victory at Brooklyn on Sunday night, but coach Gregg Popovich says his right knee became swollen during the game. Parker is having an MVP-type of season, averaging 20.7 points and 7.7 assists per game.

Duncan missed his fourth straight game due to a sore left knee. Ginobili was out for the fifth consecutive game with tightness in his left hamstring.

San Antonio began the day with an NBA-best 40-12 record. It has one game left before the All-Star break after facing the Bulls on Monday night.
