SAN ANTONIO -- Spurs point guard Tony Parker said Pau Gasol suffered a shoulder injury Monday during the team's 100-98 win over the Memphis Grizzlies, casting doubt on the center's availability for Thursday's showdown at the Golden State Warriors.

Gasol was hurt during the second half in a collision with his brother Marc Gasol, the Grizzlies center, and finished the contest with two points, seven rebounds and four assists.

"He hurt his shoulder, and he told me it was bad," Parker said. "We will see, but I'm pretty sure he's not going to play against Golden State."

In other injury news, Spurs forward Rudy Gay suffered what he called an injury to his left eardrum in the first half. Gay immediately left the floor and headed to the locker room with a member of the Spurs medical staff.

Gay returned to the bench in the first half, and he played in the second half, finishing the game with seven points, four rebounds and a steal. It's expected Gay will be evaluated on Tuesday to determine the severity of the injury.

"He got bumped around a little bit, but no injury or anything like that," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.

Because of all the team's injuries this season, the Spurs have utilized 22 starting lineups (fifth most in the NBA), with 12 players combining to miss a total of 175 games, including three players in Kawhi Leonard, Parker and Gay sitting out at least 20 outings due to injuries.
