Kawhi Leonard now out with shoulder injury

Kawhi Leonard Shoulder Injury Diagnosed as Partial Tear, Says Gregg Popovich

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

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich told reporters after Sunday's 111-110 loss to the Blazers that Leonard suffered the shoulder injury in a win over the Phoenix Suns on Friday, when he scored 21 points in 29 minutes, but "I don't think it will be a while" before he returns, per ESPN.com's Michael C. Wright.

The San Antonio Spurs can not seem to catch a break lately.

It's been an injury-riddled stretch for San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, from an ankle issue that ended his season during last year's playoffs to a quad injury that delayed his 2017-18 season debut until December 12. "It depends on how his shoulder goes".

Leonard had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Spurs were also originally optimistic about the right quad tendinopathy that lingered for Leonard from last season into training camp.

Leonard missed a huge chunk of the season due to a quadriceps injury and he has only appeared in eight games since he returned to the court.

They will certainly hope that this latest injury doesn't keep him out for too long. He's played in 34 games this season after a serious injury last season.

It certainly makes the Spurs' record all the more impressive having accomplished a 27-13 start mostly without their MVP-caliber star. The two-time all-star has only played more than 25 minutes in each of his past four games, and for the season he is averaging 15.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.8 steals.
