The San Antonio Spurs say point guard Tony Parker has a Grade 1 strain of his left hamstring and is listed as day-to-day.
    
Parker had an MRI exam on Thursday, one day after leaving Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against Portland with the injury. A Grade 1 strain is considered the least severe of the three grades, so the Spurs appear to have avoided what would have been a devastating injury to their best player.
    
Parker had a Grade 2 strain in the NBA Finals last season, but was able to play through the injury.
    
The Spurs defeated the Trail Blazers on Wednesday night to advance to the conference finals. They await the winner of the series between the Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder.
