The Spurs are winning games but losing players. San Antonio had a perfect week going 4-0, but a hamstring injury to Tony Parker, Sunday's “resting” of Manu Ginobili, and TJ Ford's injury-related retirement have the Spurs backcourt looking like an infirmary. San Antonio was unusually noisy around the trade deadline, mostly to keep a core of aging stars healthy for the postseason. Adding Stephen Jackson, Boris Diaw, and Patty Mills should help to offset the grind on Parker and Ginobili. —Sean Evans
