Spurs' Tony Parker plans to play Game 1 of NBA Finals Published: June 4, 2014

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is expected to play in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday.

Parker injured his ankle in Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He didn't play in the second half or overtime of the Spurs' 112-107 loss in the closeout game, putting his status for the NBA Finals in question.

"He's getting better every day, and I expect him to play," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Tuesday.
