Tony Parker expects to be back on the court in four to five months. The Spurs point guard offered that timeline during a recent interview with Argentina’s LPG TV. In previous interviews, he said he hoped to return in January. “It’s OK. It’s getting better and better,” he said of his recovery from the left quadriceps injury that sidelined him in the second round of the playoffs last season. “I’m starting to run like a little bit.

I am advancing in my rehab.”
