Tony Parker estimates Kawhi Leonard will return to San Antonio Spurs in ‘a couple weeks’


SAN ANTONIO — Star forward Kawhi Leonard made a rare appearance at the San Antonio Spurs‘ practice facility Monday, the same day veteran point guard Tony Parker discussed his upcoming season debut.

Parker, who will play Monday night against the Dallas Mavericks, worked out with Leonard while rehabilitating a torn quadriceps tendon. Parker said Leonard, a two-time All-Star, is close to returning to normal as he recovers from quadriceps tendinopathy.

Parker estimated Leonard would return to action “in a couple weeks, three weeks.”

“He looked great,” Parker said. “I was like, ‘Oh, he’s good. I forgot that he was that good.’ Yeah, [he’s] close. It’s still going to be a process. Still, the Spurs aren’t going to take [any] risks. It’s still going to be, like I said, a couple of weeks, three weeks. They’re not going to take any risks. But he’s looking good so far. What he did with me, he’s looking good.”

Parker said he also worked out with future Hall of Famer Tim Duncan and Matt Bonner, who recently retired after playing the final 10 of his 12 NBA seasons in San Antonio.
