Tony Parker’s strained right hamstring continues to mend, but the All-Star point guard said after Saturday’s practice that he remains at risk for a more serious injury as the Finals wear on.

“My hamstring can tear at any time now,” he said, “so if it was the regular season I would be resting. But now it’s the NBA Finals. If it gets a tear, it’s life.”

Despite his vulnerability, Parker said the injury has improved with an extra day off before Game 5 on Sunday.

“It feels good,” he said. “I feel like I’m getting stronger with it. My goal is to be close to 100 percent by tomorrow (for Game 5). I felt confident, being disciplined with all the treatments, with the ice. Hopefully I’ll be good by tomorrow.”

Parker suffered a Grade I strain on Tuesday in the second half of Game 3. He scored 15 points in Thursday’s Game 4, but none in the second half and complained of fatigue afterward. Parker inferred that he had to convince Spurs coach Gregg Popovich to let him play.
