NEW YORK (AP) 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.

The Spurs also ruled out Boris Diaw because of food poisoning. With Manu Ginobili (left hamstring) and Kawhi Leonard (broken left hand) already out, that left San Antonio with an unusual starting lineup of Cory Joseph, Nando De Colo, Tiago Splitter, Danny Green and Marco Belinelli.
