This is just not Kawhi Leonard’s year.
Leonard didn’t play his first game this season until Dec. 12 due to right quadriceps tendinopathy — a sore tendon in the quad. He only played in nine games before injuring his shoulder and having to sit out due to that, but he was expected to return the court in the next few days.
Wednesday the Spurs announced that the quad injury is back and Leonard is again out indefinitely.
“Kawhi has made significant progress and continues to move forward in his rehabilitation,” Spurs General Manager RC Buford said in a statement. “This is the best approach for the next steps in his return to play.”
