Kawhi Leonard will not play against Pelicans, return still up in air

San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green right stands at the bench with injured teammates Kawhi Leonard second from left and Rudy Gay center during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Indiana Pacers Sunday Jan. 21 2018 in San Antoni

Leonard stepped away from playing to focus on rehabbing the injured quad after a nine-game return to the Spurs that ended on January 13.

"I'll see Kawhi (Tuesday). And we'll go from there". According to basketball Bible SLAM Magazine, Leonard's medical team hasn't cleared him as he's still undergoing rehabilitation for his right quadriceps injury (thanks Zaza Pachulia).

Leonard said he has been riding a stationary bike and participating in 3-on-3 drills to simulate the physical contact of games, but he has done so with Spurs staff members, not teammates.

Kawhi Leonard won't be returning against the PelicansWhat's the story? Parker said the Spurs are a determined bunch and everybody wants to keep fighting for a playoff spot.

Fenno reports Smith will plead guilty to the charge and accept one year of jail time along with three years of probation. But he never played up to that level and the Raiders have chose to cut him instead of paying him $8.5 million this year.

After losing last night, the Spurs are now 10th in the Western Conference. His return would give the Spurs a huge boost on both ends of the court. The two-time All-Star and two-time Defensive Player of the Year is in his seventh season with the Spurs after being drafted No. 15 overall in 2011. "And until he gets cleared, we can't make a decision on when he's coming back", Popovich said.

Leonard finally made his season debut on December 12 (Dec. 13, PHL time), scoring 13 points in 15 minutes as the Spurs lost to the Mavericks. 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. There are now eight teams vying for six spots with the No. 3 seed and the No. 10 seed only separated by four games. They're playing well. I've just got to get back.

Now, following the Spurs' loss to the Houston Rockets on Monday night, Popovich told reporters that he plans to meet with Leonard on Tuesday to discuss his potential return.
