Parker works on his jump shot after Spurs' shootaround Wednesday

Spurs point guard Tony Parker, still sidelined as he continues to do rehab work to come back from a ruptured quadriceps tendon, shot jumpers after the team's game-day shootaround on Wednesday. 

Parker sustained the career-threatening injury in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals against Houston last May. He looked fluid Wednesday as he worked on his shot at the Spurs' practice facility.

Parker did not speak to the media. He and All-NBA forward Kawhi Leonard, who missed the entire preseason with a sore right quadriceps, spent most of their time in the weight room during training camp.

Parker, 35, said on the team's media day last month that he was ahead of schedule in his rehab work. He has targeted late November for his return.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said early in training camp that Leonard, 26, has been hampered by a quadriceps injury that has lingered since last season. Popovich has not set a timetable for Leonard's return.

The Silver and Black open their season against the Minnesota Timberwolves at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at the AT&T Center.
