June 12 (UPI) -- Despite a slight right hamstring strain he incurred during Game 3, Tony Parker plans to play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

The Spurs point guard had an MRI Wednesday morning that revealed the strain did not show a tear or defect, he said on Twitter.

Whether Parker gets to play for the Spurs in Game 4 is up in the air.

"We'll see," Parker said. "I felt something on my hamstring so I don't know, I have no idea when it happened."

After the third-quarter injury, Parker had to head to the locker room. He spent much of the fourth quarter on the bench before returning for just two minutes of play.

Parker suffered a bruised left calf earlier this season but returned to play after a precautionary MRI. He took the Spurs over the Heat in a Game 1 buzzer-beater. If he is unable to return, the Spurs are likely to start Cory Joseph.

Game 4 is on Thursday in the Spurs' home San Antonio.
