Kawhi Leonard injury update Spurs forward returns to New York for rehab

San Antonio Spurs star forward Kawhi Leonard is once again rehabilitating his injured quadriceps in NY with outside medical personnel, ESPN reported Saturday.

Leonard has been away from the team since Tuesday with no timetable set on a possible return to San Antonio.

The Kawhi Leonard-San Antonio Spurs saga has continued to unfold as the regular season slowly comes down to an end. Leonard hasn't played in a game since January 13.

The 26-year-old has been battling a quad injury that caused him to miss significant time at the beginning of the season and continues to keep him out after struggling through a brief return. He spent an extended period in NY prior to the February All-Star break. Earlier reports indicated that Leonard has been cleared medically by the Spurs, and that the onus is on him to decide when he's comfortable to take the court again. Wojnarowski reported that Leonard planned to play in San Antonio's game on March 15, but that plan was aborted.

The Spurs are 8-2 in their last 10 games after beating the Rockets Sunday to move to 45-32 on the season, good for fourth in the West, a half-game ahead of the Thunder.

"I've been through it", Parker said recently.

He said the Uber death was very sad "as is the deaths we have every day on the road from human errors and human behaviour". The I-PACE will be able to travel 240 miles on a single charge and accelerate from 0-60 mph in under five seconds.

Leonard is still hoping to return to the Spurs during the regular season, although they only have five games remaining following Sunday's matchup.

Also, veteran point guard Tony Parker, who returned from a more severe quadriceps injury suffered in last season's playoffs, also has made critical remarks. Same kind of injury (as Leonard's), but mine was a hundred times worse, but the same kind of injury.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was asked whether the team is making an effort to keep Leonard engaged and feel as if he's a part of the team.

"He's trying to get well", Popovich said.

"Sometimes you feel like an alien to the core group and you've got to fight through it", Ginobili said.
