San Antonio Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich said Kawhi Leonard may not play again this season when he met with the media on Wednesday. Leonard has been limited to nine games this season.
Popovich said he would be ‘surprised’ if Leonard plays again, without fully declaring his star player down for the season. He called it “honest and logical,” while also calling his return unlikely.
Leonard has not played since January 13th against the Denver Nuggets. He played 28 minutes in that game.
Following the game with the Nuggets, the Spurs announced Leonard was being shut down indefinitely. The team said his injury was his quad that’s been bothering him all season.
Tony Parker has dealt with a similar injury also this season. His quad injury was considered worse than Leonard’s, yet he returned to the team this earlier season.
The Spurs have excelled without its star this season. They are tied with the Minnesota Timberwolves for third place in the Western Conference.
In the team’s past 23 games since December 30th, they are just 10-13.
