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.

While San Antonio Spurs fans are sweating a brief Kawhi Leonard injury (out 10-14 days according to the Spurs), this injury may be a blessing in disguise for the team to try out more rotations with their abundance of guards. I'm sure head coach Gregg Popovich plays plenty of different lineups against each other during practices, but nothing is like a real NBA game.

It's been a while since we last heard about Davis Bertans. You remember him right? He was part of the 2011 Draft day trade between the San Antonio Spurs and Indiana Pacers which allowed the Spurs to acquire Kawhi Leonard and send George Hill to Indiana. Recall the Pacers drafted Bertans in 2011 (42nd overall) but was sent to the Spurs as part of the trade.
During the summer...
