Kawhi Leonard Dealing With Partial Tear in Left Shoulder

Kawhi Leonard gets ready to launch to the rim in the first half as.

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

"I don't think it will be a while", Gregg Popovich said.

They will certainly hope that this latest injury doesn't keep him out for too long.

There's no telling how much this shoulder injury is going to hold him back but it looks like the number of games that he'll miss due to injury or rest this season could reach into the 40s, much higher than anyone would've thought before the season started.

However, the Spurs are optimistic about his long-term outlook. Leonard was ruled out of that game, but the coach did dismiss the possibility of a return by his team's most important player by the time San Antonio visits the Lakers on Thursday. Lingering ankle injuries ended his 2016-17 campaign in the third round of the postseason. He appeared to be rounding into form lately, with back-to-back 20-plus point games against the New York Knicks and the Phoenix Suns and at least 18 points in each of his last four games. "The Klaw" is now averaging 15.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 1.4 steals nightly in the seven games he has played since making his return.
