Feb. 2, 2013 at 11:29 PM

SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Tony Parker's 19 points and 12 assists Saturday allowed the San Antonio Spurs to overcome the mid-game loss of Tim Duncan and post a 96-86 win over Washington.

Danny Green scored 15 points, Tiago Splitter added 12 and Kawhi Leonard provided a double-double of 10 points and 11 boards for the Spurs.

Duncan, who had just returned to the lineup following a four-game absence with a sore left knee, limped off the court in the second quarter after sustaining a sprained right ankle and a sprained left knee.

The likely future Hall of Famer was injured while battling with Washington's Martell Webster for a rebound.

The Wizards got 21 points and nine assists from John Wall but still dropped their fourth straight contest.
