San Antonio point guard Tony Parker will make his season debut when the Spurs host the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night.

Parker underwent surgery after he ruptured his left quadriceps tendon during last season's Western Conference semifinals against the Houston Rockets. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Wednesday before the team's loss in New Orleans that "I think [Parker will] be back very soon".

Parker, 35, and the team carefully plotted the point guard's return. 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.

Parker originally said he expected to return to the court in January, but it appears he will return a month earlier than he thought.

"I was more frustrated because I was playing so well and the team was playing well", Parker told The Undefeated. San Antonio is now in third place in the conference with a 12-7 record while having won seven out of their last 10 games sitting behind only the Golden State Warriors (15-5) and Houston Rockets (15-4). All those people were saying that.

"I was more frustrated because I was playing so well and the team was playing well", Parker said. The rest, for me, in my mind, I was coming back.

Parker returns to a Spurs lineup that has been without its star forward Kawhi Leonard, who is sidelined with a leg injury.

"What's really odd is that [point guard] Tony [Parker] has the same injury, but even worse", Popovich said. So, to have two guys, that's pretty incredible. Leonard has missed all 19 games San Antonio has played and could miss much more with all the uncertainty surrounding his injury, via Orsborn.
