SAN ANTONIO – Spurs point guard Tony Parker announced Sunday on his Facebook page that he will make his season debut at home Monday against the Dallas Mavericks.
Parker has been out of the Spurs lineup since he suffered a serious leg injury in early May during last season’s Western Conference semifinal series against the Houston Rockets.
The Spurs official injury report for Monday's game listed Parker as questionable. He had been listed as "out" for San Antonio's first 19 regular season games.

Parker said during Spurs media day in September that his timetable for return would be late November or early December.
The injury, a rupture of his left quadriceps tendon, was considered to be possibly career-ending, but Parker endured a grueling recovery and rehab process to get back on the court.
Parker said part of the rehab was playing 3-on-3 during practice and then 5-on-5 to strengthen his leg.
The Spurs have gone 12-7 this season without Parker and Kawhi Leonard.
Leonard has been out of the lineup as he recovers from right quadriceps tendinopathy. There is still no timetable for Leonard's return.
