The San Antonio Spurs now know they will be without Kawhi Leonard for the rest of the season. He did not play in Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors on Saturday, and will not play in another game this season.
Leonard did not travel with the team to the Bay Area for the first round of the playoffs. Yet, he has been medically cleared by the Spurs to play since Feb.
While the Spurs say he’s healthy enough to return and play, Leonard, along with his own group, are saying he’s not ready to return. Thus, this has caused a divide between the two sides.
Leonard is reportedly still rehabbing his injury, according to Yahoo Sports’ Shams Charania. But Spurs legend Tony Parker said during the season that his injury — which is the same as Leonard — was a 100 times worse than Leonard’s.
With there being speculation that the Spurs would move on without their former NBA Finals MVP, the Los Angeles Clippers have already expressed interest in a trade. Plus, the Clippers will not be the only player interested in Leonard once he becomes available.
