NBA Finals 2013: Tony Parker Has Slight Hamstring Strain, Questionable For Game 4

Steve Mitchell-USA Today Sports

On Tuesday night, the San Antonio Spurs put a second half shellacking on the defending champion Miami Heat, taking a 2-1 series lead in the process.

Starting point guard Tony Parker was hobbled in the game however, suffering an apparent hamstring injury in the victory. Parker had an MRI on his injured leg on Wednesday afternoon and he took to his Facebook page to relay the news to fans and the general public alike.

Parker suffered a slight hamstring strain on Tuesday night and he is officially listed as questionable for Game 4 on Thursday.

The veteran back court leader put the message out in French ironically enough, so fans and media members of course had to rush to translate what he was saying. It’s pretty much just another reason why Parker is the man.

Parker is uncertain of his status for Thursday night’s contest, but he has publicly stated that he hopes that he can play. For Spurs’ fans it’s of course an area of concern. San Antonio needs Parker on the court in Game 4, not just from a production standpoint, but also from a leadership point of view.

While the injury has certainly hobbled Parker, San Antonio fans shouldn’t worry too much. Parker is clearly banged up a bit, but this is Game 4 of the NBA Finals, it’d be more of a shock if he, at the very least, did not attempt to play.

San Antonio and Parker will surely know more on Thursday.
