The San Antonio Spurs will be missing their defensive ace tomorrow night as Andre Iguodala and the Denver Nuggets come to San Antonio.
The Spurs announced today that starting forward Kawhi Leonard will be out 10-14 days with an injury in his left knee.
The San Antonio Spurs today announced that Kawhi Leonard is suffering from quadriceps tendinitis in his left knee. The diagnosis was confirmed in an MRI which was performed earlier today. Leonard is expected to be out of action for 10-14 days. He is not scheduled to travel with the Spurs on the team’s upcoming six-game road trip that begins on Wednesday, Nov. 21 in Boston.
Leonard has been averaging 10.6 points and 5.4 rebounds per game so far this season, and his injury makes the Spurs a little thin at the small forward position.
With an abundance of guards available, the Spurs could slide Danny Green over to small forward and start Manu Ginobili at shooting guard with Stephen Jackson and Gary Neal staying in backup roles. The injury is definitely a loss defensively for the Sours, who use Leonard on the opposing team's best scorer on a nightly basis.
