Kawhi Leonard returns to NY; return unknown

Spurs All-NBA forward Kawhi Leonard returned to NY last Monday to continue rehabbing his lingering quad injury, coach Gregg Popovich told reporters before Sunday afternoon's home game against Houston.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Leonard has returned to NY for rehab, and there is no timetable for his return to San Antonio.

Leonard still hopes to return during the regular season, although the Spurs only have five games remaining. That is all but dead, especially now that he's reportedly returned to NY for rehab from non-Spurs doctors.

The big question for the Spurs - and their fans - isn't whether Kawhi Leonard is going to return this season.

During the program, the former National Basketball Association player and current ESPN analyst said he thinks Leonard "has played his final game with the Spurs" and that the latest rumor is "really unfortunate" for both sides.

Added up, the playoffs are about to commence and San Antonio has no clue whether it will have the services of the two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year.

The growing disconnect between Leonard and the Spurs has made the media concoct various rumors about his future. He returned for a nine-game stretch in December and January, averaging 16.2 points and 4.7 rebounds.

"I've been through it", Tony Parker told reporters recently.

Parker, meanwhile, has recovered from a ruptured left quadriceps tendon suffered last May, making his season debut in November after 208 days. Same kind of injury, but mine was 100 times worse, but the same kind of injury. "You just try to stay positive". Rose, who is a known Spurs and Leonard fan, mentioned that the team's alleged misdiagnosis of his quad injury has made the two-time All-Star lose his trust on the franchise.

"Sometimes you feel like an alien to the core group and you've got to fight through it", Ginobili said.

Ward-Henninger also said that head coach Gregg Popovich had implied "a lack of communication" between the Spurs and Leonard's "group" regarding the current status of his injury.

"He's trying to get well", Popovich said.
