               === Spurs' Parker has Grade 1 hamstring strain ===
 
 San  Antonio, TX  (SportsNetwork.com) -  San  Antonio Spurs  point guard  Tony
 Parker  is  listed as  day-to-day after  an MRI  conducted Thursday revealed a
 Grade 1 strain in his left hamstring.
 
 Parker left Wednesday's series-clinching win over Portland early in the second
 quarter  with  tightness in his  hamstring and did  not return. He was 0-for-2
 from  the  floor prior to  exiting the eventual  victory, which sent the Spurs
 into the Western Conference finals for the third straight year.
 
 The  six-time  All-Star averaged 23  points and  6.5 assists through the first
 four games against the Trail Blazers.
 
 San Antonio will start the Western Conference finals against the Oklahoma City
 Thunder on Monday.
