Tony Parker’s left ankle is ready for the NBA Finals. The San Antonio point guard pronounced himself ready to go for tonight’s Game 1 of the title series against the Miami Heat, after spending much of the last few days recovering from a sprain. “I think he’ll be fine,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. Parker acknowledged that he still has some concerns about how the ankle will hold up over the course of the finals. He and Popovich both indicated in recent days that treatment has helped considerably. “I’m trying to be very positive,” Parker said. “I’m trying to do everything I can, eat healthy, get my rest, go through treatment and just trust my body.” – AP
