San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - Tony Parker's status for Game 4 of the NBA Finals is uncertain after the All-Star point guard suffered a hamstring injury in San Antonio's resounding win Tuesday.

Parker played 27 1/2 minutes but went to the locker room in the third quarter to get evaluated. He returned in the fourth for a brief time but with the game no longer in doubt returned to the bench to watch the pummeling.

He said after the game he will undergo an MRI on Wednesday.

"Hopefully it's nothing big and it's just a cramping or got tight on me," Parker said. "I don't know, it was just a weird feeling."

Parker, who played through a bruised calf earlier this postseason, totaled six points and eight assists in Tuesday's 113-77 victory over the Heat, which gave San Antonio a 2-1 lead in the series.

Game 4 is set for Thursday.
