According to Jared Greenberg of NBA TV, San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker will undergo an MRI on his calf during the three-day layoff before Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals versus Memphis. Tony Parker to undergo an MRI tomorrow on calf. Says three days off couldn't have come at a better time @nba. @nbatv @nbaontnt — Jared Greenberg (@NBATVJared) May 22, 2013 Parker, who led the Spurs in Game 2 with 15 points and a career playoff high 18 assists, showed no signs of any calf injury. However, during the semifinals versus the Warriors, he did suffer a left calf injury when Andrew Bogut kicked him in Game 3. Parker did finish out the series versus Golden State despite the "baseball" size knot in his calf. At that time, no medical tests were given. This seems more like a precautionary measure with the three days off. With the scene shifting to Memphis, the Grizzlies will play tougher and defend Parker better so making sure he is healthy is key as this series rages on. Parker is averaging 21 points, 7.5 assists, and shooting 45% from the field in the postseason. Against Memphis, Parker is averaging 17.5 points and 13.5 assists in two games.
