Spurs' Kawhi Leonard to remain out for game vs. Clippers

Spurs' Kawhi Leonard to remain out for game vs. Clippers

"There were 6,000 people there, but I knew he was (referring to) me, and I started crying and said 'God, forgive me, I need a new life.'" Zambrano said he feels fulfilled and hopes to continue preaching the word.

According to reports, San Antonio's medical staff has been in NY on both occasions to stay updated on his progress.

Leonard has been away from the Spurs since Monday with no timetable set on a possible return to San Antonio. "If I knew, he'd be here". He spent an extended period in NY prior to the February All-Star break.

Leonard travelled to NY to continue rehabilitation on his lingering right quad injury and has his own team of doctors focused on getting him back on the court. The first time came ahead of the February All-Star break, where he spent three weeks nursing his quad injury. However, teaming up the two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year with Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward would instantly make Boston an elite team in the Eastern Conference, Rose implied. "When he and his group feel he's ready, he'll be ready", Pop said, via the Associated Press. He has been cleared by team doctors but has not felt 100 percent comfortable on the leg when attempting to play or practice. 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. However, time is running out for a return in the regular season with San Antonio down to six games to play. "It was a rehab for me for eight months". He returned for a nine-game stretch in December and January, averaging 16.2 points and 4.7 rebounds. "You just try to stay positive".

"It's the same as a player who is the 13th man sitting on the end of the bench", Popovich said.

Leonard's use of outside doctors reportedly irritated the Spurs and has prompted speculation regarding Leonard's long-term future with the club.
