Tony Parker

The veteran point guard likely will miss his third straight game with a back strain suffered last week against the Clippers.

Tony Parker will likely be missing in action for the third straight game.

The Hornets point guard is listed as doubtful for Monday’s matchup against the Pacers with a back strain, the team announced Sunday.

The veteran’s availability likely will be finalized following Monday’s morning shootaround.

Parker left Tuesday’s loss to the Clippers due to a strained back and missed games Wednesday and Saturday against the Mavericks and Hawks, respectively.

Malik Monk and Devonte Graham can expect to see an increased role in Parker’s continued absence.

The Pacers (37-19) are slated to host the Hornets (27-28) at 7 p.m. ET.
