SAN ANTONIO – Tony Parker's strained hamstring apparently won't keep him from trying to play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
Parker participated in the San Antonio Spurs' morning shootaround and coach Gregg Popovich declared him "ready to go."
Parker repeated the same assessment three times – "I will be ready to go" – without any elaboration.
The Spurs didn't specify whether Parker will start or how many minutes he will receive. Nor can they be sure how effective he will be. Parker relies on his quickness and change of speed to create plays for himself and his teammates.
"The good news is it's not a tear, it's not a defect," Parker said on Wednesday. "Now I just have to see how I'm going to feel [Thursday]."
Parker is averaging 13.3 points and 6.3Read More »from Tony Parker 'ready to go' for Game 4 of NBA Finals
