Kawhi Leonard's Return Is Set

Kawhi Leonard's Return Is Set”

Now, the Spurs claim he's been out all this season with what the Spurs are calling a "right quadricep tendinopathy"-inflammation of the tendon in the quadriceps".

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski said Leonard is targeting a Tuesday comeback.

Leonard said Monday he has been playing five-on-five in workouts, but still hadn't been cleared to play by doctors.

"Whoever is not there is not there. But for sure we need him if we want to have hopes of being the last team standing".

By the time Leonard potentially gets back, it will be over two months of questions and speculation that ends, which started during training camp.

While we're still a long ways off from that this go-round, they can at least get a fell for what the team plays like at full strength. Some nights it doesn't work out really well. But earlier this week, the two-time National Basketball Association (NBA) Defensive Player of the Year told the media he has been participating in 5-on-5 drills and he should be back soon than later. But he's looking good so far. He has not played since aggravating a sprained left ankle against Golden State during the third quarter of Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.

Spurs guard Tony Parker, who has recently returned from his own quad injury, said Leonard's in great shape.

The Spurs, already without Leonard and Kyle Anderson, lost Danny Green in the first half of Friday's game.

Leonard's return elevates the Spurs onto the short list of National Basketball Association title contenders because of his ability to impact the game on both ends.
