Spurs' Kawhi Leonard eyeing return from quad injury Thursday vs. Pelicans: report

According to the San Antonio Express-News, Leonard is set to meet with Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich on Tuesday to decide if he will be able to return to playing [VIDEO]. There are a group of specialists based in NY that Kawhi is working with, and, apparently, those are the doctors that will determine when Leonard is cleared to return to game action. "Leonard has worked hard to play again, seeking multiple opinions on his quadriceps and working with the Spurs to ensure a healthy return to the court, league sources said".

Leonard, the former two-time Defensive Player of the Year, hasn't played a game since the Spurs' 12-80 victory over the Denver Nuggets on January 13.

"Once he gets cleared, then he and I can sit down and talk, and see what we think about an appropriate time to come back".

Kawhi Leonard won't be returning against the PelicansWhat's the story?

The importance that this election holds for the SP and BSP can be understood by the fact that the two parties have joined hands to fight the polls together.

But Leonard disputed those reports last week, asserting that he said he and the Spurs had always been on the same page during his rehab and that he "for sure" hoped to finish his career in San Antonio.

Popovich, who explained that the team will continue to err on the side of caution when it comes to Leonard's injury, said he has seen the forward work out but that Leonard "needs a little bit more work".

The 2014 Finals MVP was named First-Team All-NBA in both the 2016 and 2017 seasons. San Antonio isn't getting Kawhi Leonard back just yet.

This was their eighth defeat in the last 10 games and the surprising slump has seen them drop to 37-29 in the west and from third to seventh in the standings. But obviously, I'm a competitor, and if I can play, I'm going to go out and play like I did in the nine games, just to test it out. "I play each and every night and I go out and lay it on the floor every single night", the seven-time All-Star guard added.
