Kawhi Leonard Has Returned To New York For Rehab

"I don't know when he and his group are going to feel like they are ready to go", Popovich said before Sunday's game against Houston.

The Spurs reportedly sent team staff members to NY to monitor Leonard's progress.

Leonard, 26, is now in NY to rehab his injured leg, and the Spurs have reportedly "grown pessimistic" that the former NBA Finals MVP will still suit up for the team this season, according to CBS Sports' Colin Ward-Henninger. "If I knew, he'd be here". That is all but dead, especially now that he's reportedly returned to NY for rehab from non-Spurs doctors.

Leonard has missed all but nine games this season while nursing right quadriceps tendinopathy.

Leonard opted to go to NY this week to work with his own team of doctors for the second time this season after first working with them prior to the All-Star break in February. He spent an extended period in NY prior to the February All-Star break.

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. Leonard's status was the focus of a Spurs player-only meeting on March 17, league sources told ESPN, and prominent teammates Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker have drawn attention for public comments about Leonard's status. "It was a rehab for me for eight months".

Is there a possibility Leonard could get clearance from his doctors on this trip? "When he and his group feel he's ready, he'll be ready", Pop said, via the Associated Press. "You just try to stay positive".

The former NBA Most Improved Player then continued that the Celtics could offer Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum plus Al Horford, Marcus Smart, and Terry Rozier to the Spurs to get Leonard. Leonard informed the Spurs on January 17 that he needed to take time away to focus on rehabilitation.

"That's where he's doing his rehab", Popovich said. He averaged 16.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 blocks this season.
