Tony Parker suffered a hamstring injury in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday and his status is uncertain for Game 4 on Thursday.
Parker, who could not remember which play he hurt the hamstring, will undergo an MRI on Wednesday.
“Hopefully it’s nothing big and it’s just a cramping, or got tight on me,” said Parker, who returned briefly in the fourth after the injury. “It was just a weird feeling. The doctor said I was OK…and we were up big so Pop didn’t want to take a risk. We will see [Wednesday].”
Parker scored just six points in Game 4, but the San Antonio Spurs blew out the Miami Heat 113-77.
Parker reported no pain after the game.

other playoff series for a variety of reasons.
Obviously, with (presumably) only the two best teams in the league
remaining, the quality of play is higher than ever before (as anyone who
watched Game 1 of Miami/San Antonio can attest). And with a championship ring suddenly on the
line, the level of intensity of both...
