NBA news Kawhi Leonard injury update

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard is expected to miss the remainder of the season as he continues to rehab in NY with his personal team, while his Spurs teammates face the defending champion Golden State Warriors. Sports' Shams Charania reported Sunday, citing National Basketball Association sources. Kawhi missed the first 27 games of the season and returned with a minutes restriction on December 12, but has not played since January 13.

Kawhi Leonard sat out all but nine games of the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season due to a right quadriceps injury, leaving the San Antonio Spurs with a LaMarcus Aldridge-headlined squad and a hard task at making the playoffs.

"You'll have to ask Kawhi and his group that question", Popovich said, according to ESPN. "So far, they say that he's not ready to go". So we can't do anything until that happens. "But that's the first thing that has to happen". At this moment that appears to be a fairly finite amount of time with the Warriors demolishing the Spurs in Game 1 of their opening-round series on Saturday.

There appears to be a difference of opinion between Leonard's group and teammates, who - after watching him impress at practices - pleaded with him to return to the team near the end of the season.
