As reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, two sources with direct knowledge told Yahoo! Sports that Parker should be ready to go on Thursday. Over the next few days Parker will rehabilitate his sprained ankle, which has bothered him since Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.
Cory Joseph and 36-year old veteran Manu Ginobili saw the majority of the minutes at point guard in the second half and overtime of Game 6. Should Parker struggle or be limited due to the injury, expect Ginobili and Joseph to continue to log extra minutes.
Parker, in his 13th NBA season, averaged 16.7 points and 5.7 assists in 68 regular season games. During the post season, he is averaging 17.2 points and 4.9 assists. That's quite a fine season for a 36-year old veteran who has had five listed injuries during the regular season and two more in the post season.
