NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Good news for the Nets: The Spurs will be significantly shorthanded on Thursday night.

Spurs stars Tony Parker and Tim Duncan will not play Thursday night when San Antonio visits Brooklyn.

Parker (lower back) left Wednesday night’s game against Washington at halftime and did not return. The Spurs said the 37-year-old Duncan will miss the Nets game to rest after playing 40 minutes, his season high, in the double-overtime, 125-118 win over the Wizards.

San Antonio also played Washington without Manu Ginobili (left hamstring) and Kawhi Leonard (broken left hand).
