By their standards, the San Antonio Spurs are having a pretty sub-par season.
Losers of three in their last ten games, the Spurs stand at 3rd in the Western Conference with a 12-7 record. To most teams, that'd be an ideal situation. For San Antonio, however, they're used to starting off the season in a much more dominant fashion.
But it looks like the team will be getting some much needed reinforcements.
Spurs PG Tony Parker has been out for the first month of the season, rehabbing with a pretty nagging knee injury. After some serious questions regarding his return, he announced several hours ago via Facebook that his return to the court will happen on Monday night's game against the Dallas Mavericks.
With Parker finally back on the floor, the Spurs should see some improvement on the offensive end. But the status of their other injured star, Kawhi Leonard, continues to be a mystery. Reports indicated that his return should not come too far from Parker's which is no doubt welcome news to Spurs fans.
Spurs basketball appears to be blooming at just the right time, as the West is looking as wide-open as it has ever been. Will Parker and Leonard's return be enough, or will Father-time finally come knocking at the foot of their door?
