Spurs point guard Tony Parker said on French radio that he’ll play in Game 1 despite an ankle sprain he initially suffered back in Game 4 of the first round series against Dallas.

Via RMC Sport (with online translation):

“I twisted my ankle in Game 4 of the first round against Dallas. I continued to play with the pain and I again twisted the ankle in Game 4 of the conference finals against Oklahoma City. I gritted my teeth; I did not mean to abandon my teammates. But the pain was too strong in the sixth game.
