Sidelined all season after right shoulder surgery, Spurs backup point guard Patty Mills believes he will be back on the court much sooner than anyone anticipated.

Mills had surgery in early July to repair a torn right rotator cuff, after which doctors projected a mid-January return to action. Cleared to begin full contact, five-on-five practice, he now thinks he might be able to play in one of the four remaining games this month.
“Mid-January had been (projected) all the way through,” Mills said, “but as I’ve progressed it’s end of December now.”
