Spurs Kawhi Leonard Likely out for the Season

It's not good news. The Jazz are two games above.500, just 1.5 games out of eighth place and just 2.5 games out of fifth place. He spent 18 years with the team before going to Under Armour, the sports apparel company, in 2015.

Leonard missed the first 27 games of the campaign before returning to action December 12. We're a team. People have stepped up. So it's possible that Leonard soon gets past his quad injury, sneaks in a few reps before the playoffs and works his way back to full strength in time for a potential second-round matchup with the Thunder.

On the season, the Spurs are third out west.

Sure the Spurs weren't at the very top of anyone's list of title favorites, but given Popovich's postseason resume, they couldn't be counted out, either. He has not played since January 13 when the Spurs chose to shut him down indefinitely as he continued to rehab a right quad injury. In the aftermath of Tim Duncan's retirement, the Spurs anointed Leonard as the new face of the franchise. Most fantasy owners should already be resigned to a lost season.

However, a most recent report tells a different story about Kawhi.

"The injury, rehabilitation and timetable for a return has complicated the Spurs and Leonard's relationship, causing tension and fraying the fabric of what was once a strong partnership, league sources told ESPN".

Despite Leonard's absence, the Spurs are 35-24 and now hold the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference with 23 games left in the regular season. "If by some chance he is, it's going to be pretty late in the season and it's going to be a tough decision. I'll be surprised if he's back this year".

The Spurs won that game without him and then closed out the Rockets while he rested during Game 6 in Houston.

San Antonio now has a record of 35-24, which is good for third in the Western Conference.

"You know, with Kawhi, I'll be surprised if he returns this season".

"I think that's just for you guys", Gay said of Popovich's announcement. However, it's doubtful they'll be capable of making any kind of run in the playoffs without their best player. I think we'll be happy if he comes back. Leonard has been given the ability to decide when or if he'll return to the floor.
