Alas, it probably won’t happen.
Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:
San Antonio (37-30, in a three-way tie for eighth in the Western Conference) is facing razor-thin margins in the playoff race. The Pelicans are one of the teams the Spurs are trying to catch, and so are Saturday’s opponent, the Timberwolves. And who knows how long Leonard will need to acclimate once he returns?
That process can’t start soon enough for San Antonio, but apparently it won’t begin Thursday.
