SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Tony Parker, along with all of San Antonio, really, spent a restless night worrying about a gimpy right hamstring that hampered him in Game 3 of the NBA Finals and threatened the momentum the Spurs seized with a drubbing of the Miami Heat.

A day later, Parker said he got some good news. Just how good the news is likely won't be known until Game 4 begins on Thursday night.

Parker had an MRI on Wednesday that revealed a Grade 1 strain of his hamstring, the mildest level of strain. He's listed as day to day.

“I was just hoping it was not a tear,” Parker said. “The good news is it's not a tear or a defect. So that's the good news. Now I just have to see how I feel tomorrow.”
