Kawhi Leonard Expected To Miss Season-Opener

San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard, who missed the preseason with a quadriceps injury that lingered from last season, will see that injury extends into the regular season - he is out for the season opener and maybe more, reports Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio News-Express.

Leonard emerged as one of the best two-way players in the National Basketball Association last season after shooting 38 percent from 3-point range and averaging 1.8 steals per game.

Kawhi Leonard has been rehabbing tendinopathy in his left quadriceps and the Spurs, known to have been quite comfortable playing even without its stars, are expected to take a very cautious approach on his recovery process.

According to Popovich, there is no timetable for Leonard's return.

The Spurs open at home against the Timberwolves, but Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said he will not be available.

"I don't gauge it", Popovich added. "I try not to qualify it".

The 26-year-old Leonard missed time in the 2017 playoffs due to an ankle injury suffered in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Houston Rockets.

The 6-foot-7, 230-pound Leonard is entering his seventh National Basketball Association season after averaging a career-high 25.5 points and 5.8 rebounds last season, making the All-Star Game for the second time in his career.
