Tony Parker “Hopeful” To Play in Game 1


2013 NBA Finals - Practice and Media Availability

San Antonio was able to advance to the finals, despite not having future hall of fame point guard in the second half due to a sprained ankle.

In order to beat Miami, San Antonio will definitely need Parker’s services.

Parker will undergo proper procedure throughout the week to make sure he can go.

Parker will work to rehabilitate the sprain over the next several days of preparation for the Finals rematch with the Miami Heat.

Parker had been bothered by the ankle since Game 4 of the Western Conference finals and tried to play on it in Game 6 before missing the second half of the clinching victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
