Duncan, Ginobili and Parker out tonight against Warriors

Parker's hurt and Pop decided to rest Duncan and Manu ... wonder if that'll change Vegas' line on the game.

These guys won't be on the bench tonight. Pop said, "Street clothes for all of you!"

Well, we were half-expecting it, and after the official San Antonio Spurs injury report I just received, it's official now:

Both Tim Duncan (rest) and Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play in tonight's Spurs-Warriors game. Additionally, Tony Parker will miss his second consecutive game after suffering a right shin contusion against the L.A. Clippers on Monday night.

Seeing as how this will be the Spurs' seventh game in the last ten nights (SEGATENI) it's no surprise, but it IS a bit late in the season for this, isn't it? After all, sending the Big Three -- plus Danny Green -- home the day before last year's Miami Heat game was at the end of November. And it's nearly Christmas now.

What took you so long, Pop?
