San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker injured his left quadriceps muscle during last season’s playoff run, which all but ended his season. After undergoing successful surgery in the offseason, he has been projected to return to the Spurs until January of the 2017-18 NBA season.

Or maybe he is coming back sooner than later according to his teammate Danny Green.

Green touched on Parker’s return with French site LCI and revealed No. 9 might be back on the floor a lot earlier than most expect.

“He (Tony Parker) obviously had a tough injury last year but he’s recovering. He’s a couple of months ahead of schedule… I don’t want to leak anything but he might be playing a lot sooner than people think he’s playing.

He’s been doing his rehab like a monster, like a maniac. He’s been working out like a maniac and mentally he’s really focused and trying to get his body healthy and get it right. You’ll probably be seeing Tony playing a lot sooner than what most people expect him to be back by.”
