Now, a target date is set.
League sources tell the Express-News Leonard could make his season debut for the Spurs on Saturday against the Phoenix Suns barring any setbacks.
The Spurs have gone an impressive 17-8 without an injured Leonard. LaMarcus Aldridge carried a large load. The supporting cast stepped up. Gregg Popovich showed what makes him such a good coach.
But San Antonio needs a healthy Leonard to vault into championship contention.
