05:51 PM ET 03.21 | Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said it's "possible" Tony Parker returns from his ankle injury Friday when the Jazz head into San Antonio. While Popovich is notorious for dishing out misinformation, it seems he's being truthful in this instance after Parker was able to participate in a 5-on-5 scrimmage Thursday. Parker has missed the Spurs last eight games but a Friday return would be about eight days ahead of his initial four-week timetable. Parker initially suffered the Grade-2 sprain on March 1 against the Kings.

I once read that first on an internet forum thread means you came in last in real life.
