Spurs star likely to return on Thursday

Spurs star likely to return on Thursday

"I'll see Kawhi tomorrow and we'll see how he's feeling and see how ready he is and see how ready I think he is, and we will go from there", Gregg Popovich.

The San Antonio Spurs are a team that has really struggled to make their mark in this season.

Leonard's pending return date hasn't changed, and is barring a setback from a right quad injury, sources told ESPN.

If Leonard does indeed return on Thursday, it couldn't come at a better time for the Spurs. But, it can also be recalled that Popovich and Leonard seem to have different perspective when it comes to the latter's return. The Spurs have similar records with Denver and Utah but the Nuggets and Jazz are in 8th and 9th place, respectively, as they own tiebreakers over San Antonio.

However, a recent report from Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania said that Leonard would still not be able to participate in the upcoming game against the Pelicans.

The Spurs have lost 11 of their past 14 games and are 10th in the Western Conference standings with 15 games remaining.

Leonard's return would bring an end to a seemingly endless saga, and one highly unusual for the usually drama-free Spurs. "I don't hear. I don't worry about reports", Popovich said at the time. He did not make his season debut until December 12 and he did not play in more than two consecutive games. He last appeared for the Spurs back in mid-January, and has season averages of 16.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 blocks in 23.3 minutes per game. They're playing well. I've just got to get back. Leonard has worked hard to play again, seeking multiple opinions on his quadriceps and working with the Spurs to ensure a healthy return to the court, league sources said.
