The shooting guard confirmed on his Facebook page yesterday afternoon that he will make his return from an Achilles tear against the Toronto Raptors tomorrow.
The head coach told ESPN: "I think it's terrific. Obviously he feels good about it and we'll see going forward, but this is good news.
"He'll be a dominant player. He can play any way. He can play below the rim, above the rim, beside the rim. I mean, the guy can play any way.
"He'll figure out how he'll be effective and then he'll come at you with everything he's got. That's been his MO, and I think that's what he'll do."
