San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker will be out "for the foreseeable future," coach Gregg Popovich said Tuesday.

Popovich told ESPN that Parker has a "variety of maladies."

Parker missed two of the Spurs' previous four games leading up to the All-Star break because of a hand injury.

Parker has averaged 17.7 points and 6.2 assists per game this season.

"He doesn't have a pulled hamstring or anything, but he's got a lot of little things," Popovich said. "Basically a lot of basketball the last three years, all season long, all summer long. It's caught up to him."

Parker said he agreed with the decision.

"The main thing with Pop, he doesn't want me to play 50 percent, 60 percent," Parker said. "That's the main thing. He wants me to get all of my little stuff healed. So however much time it takes, next time I come back on the court he wants me to be 100 percent. Against Charlotte, against Detroit, I was not myself. He just doesn't want me to play like that."
