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’m walking pretty well. I think it’s still going to be a long process. It’s still going to take like another four or five months, but I am very happy with the progresses. I am advancing in my rehab.”

Parker, who turned 35 on May 17, underwent surgery May 5 to repair the tendon he ruptured during the fourth quarter of Game 2 against Houston. The injury was a severe blow to the Spurs’ title hopes, considering Parker had averaged in the playoffs to that point 15.9 points and 3.1 assists while shooting 53 percent.
