The veteran has been out since rupturing his quad tendon during game two of the Spurs' second-round playoff series against the Houston Rockets a year ago. For real, sooner than later.

The Spurs guard has been with the team since 2001. Parker participated in a rehabilitation assignment with the team's G League affiliate in September, as he slowly worked himself back into proper cardiovascular conditioning.

The four-time champion was not expected to return until January but is well ahead of schedule to give a huge boost to head coach Gregg Popovich.

"He was looking good the last two or three practices he had with me", Parker said of Leonard". Parker, a six-time All-Star, said he didn't consider retirement.

"#ImBack Get ready #SpursNation, I'm coming back on tomorrow's game against Dallas!", Parker wrote.

The Spurs never issued a specific timeline for Parker's return. Parker told Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated in September that he planned to return to the court soon. Never in my mind was I sad or I thought I would never come back. All those people were saying that.

"I was more frustrated because I was playing so well and the team was playing well". The rest, for me, in my mind, I was coming back. Parker said the workouts he had with Leonard included some of the "old, old guys" like Spurs great Tim Duncan and retired Spurs sharpshooter Matt Bonner. Popovich said he's "never" encountered the conditions suffered by Parker and Leonard. If he, in fact, does return to the court in his No. 9 jersey ready for action Monday night, that would cap the total number of games he has missed since his injury at 19. According to his statement, what makes it even more odd is that Tony Parker suffered the same injury but was in worst condition. "You know the Spurs, they are going to take no risks. I try to be a leader and try to (generate) offense and make guys better".
