Kawhi Leonard was planning to return Saturday for Spurs-Suns.

Things aren’t going to plan.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

If Leonard returns Tuesday, that’s fine. San Antonio should still beat Devin Bookerless Phoenix, regardless. Even if the Spurs lose, they’ve built plenty of cushion without Leonard.

But, man, this injury remains vexing.
