LOS ANGELES (AP) — Spurs guard Tony Parker is sitting out against the Los Angeles Clippers, and San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich says the six-time All Star will be sidelined for quite some time because of multiple injuries.

Popovich said earlier Tuesday that Parker would be out of action "for the foreseeable future" because of numerous aches and pains involving his back, groin and calf.

The 13-year veteran, who played 11 minutes Sunday in the NBA All-Star game, is the Spurs' leading scorer. He is also the only player averaging at least 30 minutes for Southwest Division-leading San Antonio.

Last season, Parker was the only NBA player to average at least 20 points and seven assists while shooting over 50 percent from the field and 80 percent on free throws.
