SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Spurs will take the court Sunday night for the first time this season with guard Patty Mills available to play.

Mills missed the first 31 games of the season while recovering from offseason shoulder surgery July 2. 

The Spurs will be without the services of starting point guard Tony Parker and starting small forward Kawhi Leonard. 

Parker is nursing a mild strain of his left hamstring, while Leonard is battling a bruised right hand. 

San Antonio will host the Houston Rockets Sunday at the AT&T Center. 

The Rockets have won the last five match-ups against the Spurs, including a 98-81 win Nov. 6 in Houston and all four match-ups last season. 

The Spurs have lost six of their last seven games, the most recent coming Friday night in New Orleans where they lost 97-90 to the Pelicans.

Sunday's game will tip off at 6 p.m. in San Antonio.
