San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker exited last night’s Game 3 victory over the Miami Heat in the third quarter after suffering a right hamstring injury. His status for Game 4 is unknown, as he’s slated to undergo an MRI today to determine the damage, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles."We'll see," Parker said. "We'll get an MRI tomorrow, and hopefully it's nothing big and it's just a hamstring that got tight on me."Parker exited the game with just over five minutes remaining in the third. He returned briefly for the fourth quarter, but considering the Spurs had a commanding lead they didn’t want to take a chance of furthering the injury.When asked when he sustained the injury, Parker wasn’t sure of the specific play. All that he would say is that he got a “weird feeling” that grew progressively worse in the third quarter, forcing him to leave the game.Parker is obviously a huge factor in the Spurs’ success. They helped their cause by winning Game 3 to take a 2-1 advantage over the Heat, but they will be in serious trouble if they have to be without Parker for an extended stretch.Follow @hoopsinjurynews

NBA Finals have featured more blowouts than drama

The Heat Take Game Two Behind Lebron's Heroic Efforts
