NBA FINALS: Parker hopeful for Game 4

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - San Antonio's Tony Parker has a mild strained hamstring and hopes to play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals Miami on Thursday night. Parker had an MRI that revealed the Grade 1 strain. He is listed as day-to-day. Parker was concerned that the hamstring could have been torn, which would have made it very difficult for him to play. Parker was injured early in the second half of the Spurs 36-point, Game 3 win Tuesday night. He was limited to six points and eight assists in 27 minutes and left the game early in the fourth quarter with the outcome already decided. Parker's injury somewhat muted the celebration in San Antonio following the Spurs' decisive bounce-back victory that put them two wins shy of the franchise's fifth championship. Coach Gregg Popovich says he wants to wait until Thursday before deciding Parker's status for Game 4.
