Kawhi Leonard Has Returned To New York For Rehab

Spurs Kawhi Leonard face three big questions as unusual season of drama continues

Leonard (quad) has returned to NY for the second time this season for rehabilitation under the supervision of a medical team outside of the Spurs organization, Adrian Wojnarowski and Michael C. Wright of ESPN report.

"He's trying to get well", Popovich added. He spent an extended period in NY prior to the February All-Star break.

Leonard has missed all but nine games this season while nursing right quadriceps tendinopathy, an injury that flared up late in the offseason.

This is the second time this season Leonard has gone to NY.

Leonard left San Antonio and his teammates in the aftermath of increasing tension levels surrounding his disconnect with the team and several near-returns that resulted in Leonard backing off and staying on the sidelines. That is all but dead, especially now that he's reportedly returned to NY for rehab from non-Spurs doctors.

"I don't know when he and his group are going to feel like they are ready to go", Popovich told reporters.

With his classic dose of sarcasm, Popovich made it clear that it'll be up to Leonard and "his group" to determine when he will return to the team. "If I knew, he'd be here".

Leonard is still hoping to return to the Spurs during the regular season, although they only have five games remaining following Sunday's matchup. Of course, that's the goal, to get well. "When he and his group feel he's ready, he'll be ready", Pop said, via the Associated Press.

Led by LaMarcus Aldridge's best season with the team, San Antonio is fourth in the tight Western Conference. He is averaging 16.2 points and 4.7 rebounds.

Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs looks on from the bench against the Sacramento Kings during the first quarter of an NBA basketball game at Golden 1 Center on October 27, 2016 in Sacramento, California.

Leonard, 26, is a two-time All-NBA Defensive Player of the Year, two-time Defensive Player of the Year and MVP of the 2014 NBA Finals.
