Tony Parker was cleared on Sunday to play in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals on Monday.

According to Dan McCarney of the San Antonio Express News, Parker participated on Sunday in the second of two practices the team held this weekend. The top-seeded Spurs tip off against the second-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder at home and Parker is expected to play.

Parker's status had been uncertain after suffering a Grade 1 sprain in the series-clinching win over the Portland Trail Blazers last week. He left the game after the first quarter and did not return. He has since sat out of all team activities.

Parker is leading the Spurs in both points per game (19.3) and assists per game (4.9) during the postseason. The Spurs are in the conference finals for the ninth time in the past 16 seasons. The Thunder swept San Antonio 4-0 in the regular season.
