Spurs point guard Tony Parker will be "ready to go" Thursday for Game 4 of the NBA Finals in San Antonio.
Parker said he plans to be on the court with the Spurs looking to increase their series lead to 3-1 over the Miami Heat.
Parker, 31, left Game 3 in the third quarter for a doctor's examination in the locker room and then returned to play for several minutes. But with the outcome firmly under control, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich kept Parker on the bench for most of the fourth quarter. He underwent an MRI exam on Wednesday, which revealed a grade 1 strain.
The Spurs took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series with a 113-77 victory on Tuesday. Parker finished with six points and eight assists in 27 minutes.
