As deep as the Spurs are and as good a team as they showed to be in Game 3, Tony Parker is still the key to making their offense work long term.
And he tweaked his hamstring in Game 3 and his status for Game 4 is now up in the air.
“We’ll see,” Parker said in the Spurs locker room. “I felt something on my hamstring so I don’t know, I have no idea. We will do an MRI tomorrow. Hopefully it’s nothing big and it’s just a cramping, or got tight on me. I don’t know, it was just a weird feeling. I just wanted to make sure the doctor said I was okay and then I played two minutes in the fourth quarter and we were up big so Pop didn’t want to take a risk. We will see tomorrow.”
Parker said he wasn’t feeling any pain. He also said there was no pop, he just said several times it felt “weird.” He wasn’t even sure exactly when or how he tweaked it.
When coach Gregg Popovich was asked for an update and if he knew anything, his one-word answer was “no.”
This is the kind of thing that by tomorrow could be gone and Parker is fine, or it could feel worse. For the Spurs sake — and the sake of good basketball — let’s hope it is the former.
