In the midst of the Spurs' 3-point onslaught in last night's Game Three victory over the Heat comes some troubling news from the San Antonio locker room. Tony Parker left the game in the middle of the third quarter with an undisclosed hamstring injury. While he returned to the bench and to the game, Parker still said he felt some discomfort. He was scheduled to have an MRI this morning (don't expect Gregg Popovich to release much information from those results). However, Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports Parker was fearing the worst that he could miss Game Four on Thursday. I'm trying to stay positive. Hopefully … I think it was just tight, a little cramp, a little bit of everything and I'll be fine. I'll wake up tomorrow and I'll be fine, that's my hope. I'll just try to stay positive. Parker scored six points and dished out eight assists in 27 minutes of last night's Game Three before leaving with the injury. Fortunately San Antonio was up so much that the team did not really need much from him -- or Tim Duncan or Manu Ginobili for that matter. Going forward in this series, however, the Spurs will need Tony Parker to exert his will on the game and take advantage of the matchup at point guard. Parker has been critical for the Spurs already in two wins this series even though he did not complete Game Three thanks to that injury. Tuesday's game was Parker's first with single digit scoring this postseason. San Antonio always has found a way to rally. Going the rest of this series -- or even one game -- without Parker might be asking a bit too much. [follow]
