Parker reveals MRI results on Facebook

If the Spurs want to take two more games from the Heat, they may have to do it without Tony Parker.

Tony Parker underwent an MRI Wednesday morning on his injured hamstring, and the results are in.

Parker posted, in French, on his Facebook page that he has a slight "stretch" in his hamstring.

"I just had MRI. Result: I suffer from a slight stretch to the hamstring. We'll see tomorrow how I feel, I really hope to play!" Parker posted, according to the San Antonio Express-News translation and reports.

The NBA has released the results of the MRI, confirming a Grade 1 right hamstring strain.

Parker is officially listed as day to day.

Parker left Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night in the third quarter to have his hamstring examined.  He returned to the game and played the first two minutes of the fourth quarter before leaving the game, along with the rest of the Spurs' veteran stars, as the Spurs pulled away from Miami en route to a 113-77 win.

''I just wanted to make sure the doctor said I was OK and then I played two minutes in the fourth quarter and we were up big so (coach Gregg Popovich) didn't want to take a risk,'' Parker said after last night's game when asked about the injury. ''We will see tomorrow.''

Game 4 of the NBA Finals is Thursday night in San Antonio.  The Spurs lead the series over Miami 2-1.
