Kawhi Leonard Shoulder Injury Diagnosed as Partial Tear, Says Gregg Popovich

Gregg Popovich says Kawhi Leonard suffered partial tear in his left shoulder

That said, it seems San Antonio is not taking any chances on Leonard potentially reaggravating his quad injury.

It's been an injury-riddled stretch for San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, from an ankle issue that ended his season during last year's playoffs to a quad injury that delayed his 2017-18 season debut until December 12.

Spurs' Gregg Popovich says Kawhi Leonard is dealing with a partial tear in shoulder

But Leonard missed Sunday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers with what was reported to be a left shoulder strain, and he's now in line to miss some time with a partial tear in his shoulder.

"I don't think it will be a while", Gregg Popovich said. "It depends on how his shoulder goes". He has played in 39 games this season and notched a triple-double earlier this year. In fact, the team hasn't even ruled Kawhi out for Thursday's game in LA against the Lakers (the Spurs play a game in Sacramento on Monday, for which Kawhi has also been ruled out).

The company replaced the image with one of the sweatshirt alone, and initially kept the product for sale on its website. The singer worked with the company on multiple projects, both as a model and collaborating on signature clothing items.

The campaign has been filled with injuries for San Antonio but they have rallied and remained competitive regardless of who they have on the floor. "He started to feel better, to feel good and then we lose him for a few games and we don't know how many".

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard (2) scores as Phoenix Suns center Alex Len (21) and guard Devin Booker (1) defend during the first half of an NBA basketball game Friday, Jan. 5, 2018, in San Antonio. Their record is all the more impressive because, in addition to Leonard, players such as Rudy Gay (heel), Danny Green (groin), Kyle Anderson (MCL), Tony Parker (quadriceps) and Joffrey Lauvergne (ankle) have been missing time with their own injuries.
