Gregg Popovich waiting on Kawhi Leonard's own team of doctors for clearance

Gregg Popovich waiting on Kawhi Leonard's own team of doctors for clearance

Leonard recently left the team for the second time this season to continue rehab on his injured quad in NY, and the Spurs have reportedly grown pessimistic that Leonard will return to the court at all this season.

"That's where he's doing his rehab", Popovich said. The first time came ahead of the February All-Star break, where he spent three weeks nursing his quad injury.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Kawhi Leonard is continuing his injury rehabilitation in NY with his own team of doctors, but is unsure when the star forward and "his group" will clear him to play.

The 6-foot-7 forward has worked out at the NBA Players Association facility in Manhattan during both of his stays in NY.

"There were 6,000 people there, but I knew he was (referring to) me, and I started crying and said 'God, forgive me, I need a new life.'" Zambrano said he feels fulfilled and hopes to continue preaching the word.

Leonard has played in only nine games this season. "If I knew, he'd be here".

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was asked whether the team is making an effort to keep Leonard engaged and feel as if he's a part of the team.

Leonard stepped away to focus on rehabbing the injured quad after a nine-game return to the Spurs that ended on January 13. "When he and his group feel he's ready, he'll be ready". Of course, that's the objective, to get well. In limited minutes in Leonard's nine games this season, he averaged 16.2 points and 4.7 rebounds a game.

The Spurs are 44-32 and fourth in the Western Conference playoff standings.

Sir Charles In Charge's David Early said in his article that the Spurs might be forced to trade Leonard to the Lakers in the coming offseason if Popovich fails to persuade him to remain in San Antonio.

Leonard, 26, is a two-time All-NBA first-team selection and was named Defensive Player of the Year in 2015 and 2016.
