San Antonio Spurs All-Star Kawhi Leonard is expected to miss the remainder of the postseason as he continues to rehabilitate his right quadriceps injury, according to a report from Yahoo Sports.
Leonard is still rehabbing his quad injury in New York and hasn’t been cleared by his medical team to return to action. The two-time Defensive Player of the Year only appeared in nine games this season.
The Spurs got blown out in Game 1 of the first-round by the Golden State Warriors and are clearly outmatched without Leonard’s services.
When asked by reporters Sunday if there’s any chance Leonard returns, San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said, “You’ll have to ask Kawhi and his group that question,” adding more fuel to the fire that the Spurs and Leonard aren’t on the same page.
Leonard has made strides recently in training and is focused on regaining his full health for next season. Whether he’s still a member of the Spurs is up in the air at this point.
