According to Brett Pollakoff of NBC Sports, the San Antonio Spurs have lost forward Kawhi Leonard to a fractured hand, and he will miss an indefinite amount of time. The Spurs have been hit hard by the injury bug this season, and are now playing without Tiago Splitter, Danny Green, and Kawhi Leonard. It will be very interesting to see how the team is able to compete without three of their key players. Leonard has played in 40 games this season with the San Antonio Spurs, averaging 11.8 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. Those numbers certainly are not what many analysts were expecting after he had big performances in the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat. He has not taken the next step to become the player that he has the potential to be, and it has frustrated many Spurs fans. This injury will certainly hurt the Spurs defensively, as Leonard is their best wing defender. It showed up in a big way tonight against the Thunder, as Kevin Durant was able to do whatever he wanted following the injury. All that being said, even if Leonard had been guarding him it likely wouldn’t have mattered too terribly much. There has been no timetable given yet about the comeback for Leonard, but he is going to miss some time. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist of the Charlotte Bobcats suffered a similar injury earlier this season and missed a good three weeks. Don’t expect Leonard to return to the court for at least three weeks.
