Gregg Popovich Doesn't Know When Kawhi Leonard Will Return from Injury Rehab

Gregg Popovich Doesn't Know When Kawhi Leonard Will Return from Injury Rehab”

San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich said Sunday that Kawhi Leonard is continuing his injury rehabilitation in NY with his own team of doctors and isn't sure when "his group" will clear Leonard to play.

"He's trying to get well", Popovich said.

Leonard arrived in NY on Monday and has been working out at the gymnasium inside the headquarters of the NBA Players Association. He returned to San Antonio in the last week of February and appeared to be inching closer to a return to the court.

This is the second time this season Leonard has gone to NY.

Is there a possibility Leonard could get clearance from his doctors on this trip?

"I don't know when he and his group are going to feel like they are ready to go", Popovich told reporters.

Time is running out on Leonard's chances of returning to the active roster this season, and optimism has waned that Leonard will play in any of the Spurs' six remaining regular-season games or join them in the Western Conference playoffs. "If I knew, he'd be here". He played nine of the Spurs' next 17 games but was shut down again in January and hasn't played since. Of course, that's the goal, to get well. "When he and his group feel he's ready, then he'll be ready".

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.

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.

Added up, the playoffs are about to commence and San Antonio has no clue whether it will have the services of the two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year.

The handling of the injury has reportedly created tension in the Spurs' locker room, leading to a players-only meeting in March.
