Kawhi Leonard    G/F  Spurs

 

 

Kawhi Leonard (quad) is not expected to play in Wednesday’s season opener against Minnesota. That's not good at all after Kawhi has missed all of the preseason. Leonard has been rehabbing his left quadriceps tendinitis issue for this month, and the most work he's done at practice so far is shooting free throws. The Spurs are almost always cautious with injuries, especially with how Kawhi had a similar problem in 2012-13. If you're drafting this weekend, you may want to wait until at least 20 to take a shot on one of the league's best players. Kyle Anderson is probably going to start, but Rudy Gay is likely the beneficiary for fantasy.

Kawhi Leonard (quad) is still without a clear timetable for his return. Back in late September, the Spurs announced Leonard would miss the entire preseason while continuing a rehab program for right quadriceps tendinopathy. Friday is the Spurs preseason finale; however, we still are unsure if Kawhi is on pace to play in San Antonio's regular-season opener on October 18th. "We’ve seen him in the gym and in rehab, but he hasn’t scrimmaged, so it’s hard to tell what stage he is in," Manu Ginobili said after practice Thursday. "It’s a question mark."

Kawhi Leonard (quad) was attempting free throws at practice on Thursday. To be clear, he did not go through a full practice and he is still doing some rehab work. The Spurs have been whisper quiet on a timetable and he should be considered questionable for opening night against the Wolves on Wednesday. Considering Kawhi had quad tendinitis back in 2012-13, fantasy owners may want to bump him down a few spots until we get more clarity on this situation.

Kawhi Leonard (quad) has been ruled out for Sunday's preseason matchup with the Nuggets. The Spurs have yet to offer an official timetable for Leonard, thus putting his status for opening night up in the air, and this uncertainty has been causing him to slide on draft day. The Spurs take the court again Tuesday vs. Orlando, and for now, we'll be considering Leonard doubtful for that one. While Leonard is a truly elite option in fantasy hoops, you might want to go with a healthier guy within the top-8 picks on draft day.

Kawhi Leonard (right quad) still doesn't have a timetable to return according to coach Gregg Popovich. The Spurs open the regular season against the Wolves on Oct. 18, but they have three more preseason games before that. We wouldn't expect Leonard to play in those, but his status for opening night is unknown at this point -- Coach Pop isn't known for his transparency. Due to the uncertainty, Leonard has been sliding towards the end of the first round in fantasy drafts.

Kawhi Leonard (right quad) will sit out Monday's preseason game against the Kings. Leonard is still nursing a quad injury from last season and there's a decent chance he'll miss a good chunk of the preseason, according to head coach Gregg Popovich. It's unclear if this will be an issue that affects him during the regular season, and the uncertainty here certainly adds a bit of risk to a Leonard investment on draft day.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Kawhi Leonard’s quad injury is left over from last season. Leonard is battling right quad tendinopathy which is a condition that can cause the tendon to tire from overuse. He's been rehabbing the injury all summer, but Popovich said his recovery has gone a "little more slowly" than they were expecting. "He will probably miss the beginning of preseason or a good deal of preseason," Popovich said. "We are not going to put a timetable on it. But he is working on it and we will get him back as soon as we can." Until we get more clarity, it makes sense to move Kawhi down a bit on draft boards.
