Kawhi could return to Spurs this week

Spurs' Kawhi Leonard eyeing return from quad injury Thursday vs. Pelicans: report Sources: Kawhi Leonard could be available as early as Thursday against Pelicans
Chelsea Rogers | 15 March, 2018, 06:03

With all the news that has been reported about San Antonio Spurs star forward Kawhi Leonard, it still remains unclear if and when he will exactly return to action this season.

Leonard has now been ruled out for the home game against the New Orleans Pelicans after already being ruled out of the Tuesday's night game against the Orlando Magic at the AT&T Center, per Ramona Shelbourne of ESPN.com.

External optimism had built for Leonard's potential return this week, but he is expected to be remain out and will continue to evaluate his injury for a possible comeback before the season ends, league sources said.

This San Antonio Spurs team will likely not make the playoffs this season.

I don't have a set date right now [for my return], Leonard said, per Michael C.Wright of ESPN.com.

Leonard admitted that the only way to work himself into proper cardiovascular condition is to actually play in games. "But I can't come back unhealthy", said Leonard. Kawhi Leonard has been averaging 16.2 points per game, so he has also been an offensive machine.

The Spurs have withered in his absence, dropping 13-of-20 games following Saturday's (Sunday, PHL time) 104-94 loss to the Thunder - their worst stretch since 1996-97, the season before Duncan's arrival started a run of dominance featuring five championships and 20 straight playoff appearances. And he is feeling "much better", according to the source.

Without their two top players, the Spurs lost to the Houston Rockets, 109-93.

This was their eighth defeat in the last 10 games and the surprising slump has seen them drop to 37-29 in the west and from third to seventh in the standings. The Spurs, who were without leading scorer LaMarcus Aldridge, got 14 points each from Forbes and Derrick White.
