Spurs' Kawhi Leonard has partial tear in his shoulder, return date unclear

Gregg Popovich likes Kawhi Leonard's progress in return to lethal form Blazers Host Spurs Again Before Hitting The Road

Leonard sat out most of the first two months of the season as he worked his way back from a hip injury, and when he made his return the Spurs were quick to keep his workload down.

"I don't think it will be a while", Popovich said regarding Leonard's status following the Spurs' 111-110 loss to the Trail Blazers. According to ESPN's Michael C. Wright, the team remains hopeful that Leonard can return and play on Thursday against the Los Angeles Lakers. He appeared to be rounding into form lately, with back-to-back 20-plus point games against the New York Knicks and the Phoenix Suns and at least 18 points in each of his last four games.

Leonard, a two-time All-Star, has been limited to eight games this season because of a quadriceps injury.

Trump's Support for the Iranian Protests
But Russia's ambassador, Vassily Nebenzia, said the USA was "abusing the platform of the Security Council". The Iranian regime is now on notice. "We will not be quiet", she told the meeting.

The 26-year-old also famously missed time in the postseason because of a sprained ankle, in part leading to the Spurs' exit in the Western Conference Finals.

As the second half dawns Monday night, the Spurs' top priority is getting everyone healthy, especially, of course, Leonard. That's the third best record in the west. Popovich's squad has relied on a group effort rather than an individual replacement for Leonard's scoring.
