Spurs’ Parker will play in Game 4

SAN ANTONIO — Spurs guard Tony Parker will play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals after his availability was in doubt because of a mild right hamstring strain.

Parker wouldn’t address his injury at practice Thursday other than saying he was “ready to go.” The All-Star was hurt early in the second half of Game 3, which the Spurs won to take a 2-1 lead over the Miami Heat in the best-of-seven series.

Parker is averaging 13.3 points and 6.3 assists in the Finals.

Spurs guard Gary Neal says it’s a “huge brick off our shoulders” that Parker was cleared to play.
