  • Popovich Reveals New Kawhi Leonard Injury Day Before Kings Face Spurs

This setback adds to Kawhi's frustrations this year after he missed the first 27 games of the campaign.

But Leonard missed Sunday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers with what was reported to be a left shoulder strain, and he's now in line to miss some time with a partial tear in his shoulder.

This is a major disappointment for the Spurs because when healthy, Leonard has become one of the best all-around players in the National Basketball Association. Most of all, head coach Gregg Popovich just feels bad.

Kawhi Leonard gets ready to launch to the rim in the first half as. He has played in 39 games this season and notched a triple-double earlier this year. While they are unclear about how long his recovery will take, they are hopeful he can play Thursday.

Injuries have become a bit of an issue for Leonard recently, who got a late start to the 2017-18 season because of a quadriceps tendinopathy, an injury that had apparently been bothering him since the 2016-17 season. But an offseason quad injury would keep him out this season until December 12th. His minutes load had increased from less than 20 in his first four appearances to almost 30 in his last four, and his performance was just starting to resemble the player who has twice been named Defensive Player of the Year and entered the MVP conversation each of the past three years. Forbes has played in all 41 games this season and is averaging 20 minutes and seven points per game while shooting almost 43 percent from 3-point range.

Despite numerous injuries, the Spurs are 27-14 and now in third place in the Western Conference standings.
