The 32-year-old French star declared himself a certain starter on Wednesday, a day ahead of the series opener against the Miami Heat at the AT&T Center.

“(There’s) a little bit of (fear) because you never know how it’s going to feel, but I’m trying to be very positive,” he told a news conference.
“I’m trying to do everything I can ” eat healthy, get my rest, do all the treatment and just trust my body.
“I trust my body to hold up for the whole series.”
Parker added: “Those five days made the difference for me to be ready for game one.”
