Spurs' Tony Parker: Aiming for late-November return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parker told French publication L'Equipe in a recent interview that an MRI on Sept. 15 revealed the point guard's injured left quadriceps tendon had fully healed and said that he plans to return to the court by late November, Paul Garcia of TheSportsDaily.com reports.

It's excellent news for Parker, who ruptured the tendon in a May 3 playoff game against the Rockets and later underwent surgery. The expectation was that the veteran would be sidelined until at least early January following the procedure, but his rapid healing apparently has him on track to beat that estimated timetable by nearly a month. The Spurs likely won't issue an official timeline for Parker until he resumes practicing again, and given that he turned 35 years old in May, it's possible the team errs on the side of caution and holds him out until December. With that in mind, don't count on Parker, who averaged 10.1 points in 25.2 minutes per game in 2016-17, his lowest marks since his rookie campaign, to make an appearance in the first month of the season, and it's quite likely that he'll see his role shrink further as he prepares for his 17th season in San Antonio. Backups Patty Mills and Dejounte Murray will likely split time running the offense while Parker is sidelined at the beginning of the season, and should handle all the minutes at point guard in occasional contests to follow due to coach Gregg Popovich's tendency to periodically rest Parker.

Spurs' Rudy Gay: Says he's ready for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay (Achilles) says he'll be cleared for the start of training camp, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Gay has been cleared for full basketball activity since mid-July, so it comes as no surprise he's expected to be ready for the start of training camp. The 31-year-old is now roughly eight months removed from originally tearing his Achilles and while the Spurs could opt to limit his workload throughout training camp and the preseason, Gay should be on a full workload once the regular season is here. A more defined role should be established once he begins practicing with the team, but it's fully expected that Gay will translate into a bench role for the first time since his rookie season, which means he'll likely see a smaller workload than the 33.8 minutes he was averaging last year with the Kings before going down with the injury .
