Kawhi Leonard returns to NY for rehab

Kawhi Leonard returns to NY for rehab”

The San Antonio Spurs will have to wait a little longer for the return of Kawhi Leonard as Adrian Wojnarowski and Michael Wright of ESPN are reporting that the former all-star and defensive player of the year has returned to NY for rehab.

"It's the same as a player who is the 13th man sitting on the end of the bench", Popovich said.

Leonard, who has struggled to overcome the tendinopathy in his right quadriceps since the preseason, sought a second opinion on his injury last month in NY. A Lakers Nation podcast in late February talked about a possible summer trade that would send Lonzo Ball and some draft picks to San Antonio in exchange for Leonard, and the rumors have only gotten louder since then.

But he added that it was "safe to say" that "Mueller is not prone to exaggeration, so they probably have this tightly tied down". That article landed Manafort in hot water with prosecutors and the judge presiding over the federal criminal case against him.

Spurs staff has traveled to NY to meet with Leonard and stay abreast of his treatment and activity, sources said.

Leonard's use of outside doctors reportedly irritated the Spurs and has prompted speculation regarding Leonard's long-term future with the club.

"I don't know when he's going to feel, he and his group are going to feel like they're ready to go", Popovich said. Wojnarowski said there's no timetable for Leonard's return. "If I knew, he'd be here. When he and his group feel he's ready, he'll be ready", Pop said, via the Associated Press.

Leonard is now in NY undergoing further evaluation and rehab on his quad, which has limited him to just nine games this season.

Leonard still hopes to return during the regular season, although the Spurs only have five games remaining. "Of course that's the goal (of his stay in New York), to get well, that's what he's doing".

The Spurs are 8-2 in their last 10 games after beating the Rockets Sunday to move to 45-32 on the season, good for fourth in the West, a half-game ahead of the Thunder. He returned briefly but hasn't played since complaining of soreness in his injured thigh following a January 13 home win against Denver.

Leonard, 26, is a two-time All-NBA Defensive Player of the Year, two-time Defensive Player of the Year and MVP of the 2014 NBA Finals. Wojnarowski reported that Leonard planned to play in San Antonio's game on March 15, but that plan was aborted.
