Fit and Ready: Tony Parker ‘ready’ for NBA Finals opener

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.

Parker said there were some fears his ankle injury would be a problem during the series, but a five-day break between games meant he was fit for game one.

“(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.”
