San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker could miss the rest of the NBA Finals after suffering a hamstring injury in the third game of the series.
Parker will have an MRI scan on Wednesday after having to leave the court for a period during the Spurs 113-77 victory over the Miami Heat to put them into a 2-1 series lead.
If the 31-year-old does miss the rest of the Finals, or even just one game, it would be a huge blow to the Spurs as he averages 22.3 points and seven assists in the play-off and Finals games. In the regular season, Parker averaged 20.3 points and 7.6 assists.
In the third game of the series, Parker came out of the action late in the third quarter, but he returned in the fourth quarter.
He could only manage two more minutes though before being forced to sit out the remainder of the Spurs' win.
The next NBA Finals game takes place on Friday with Game 7 if necessary scheduled for June 20.
