His lengthy bouts with injury have kept him sidelined for all but nine games this season and while the Spurs held on early, they've tumbled all the way to seventh in the West, just one game ahead of the tenth place Utah Jazz.

The two-time Defensive Player of the Year has been troubled by a quad injury all season.

Just before the San Antonio Spurs tipped off their game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, ESPN's Lisa Salters reported that Kawhi Leonard could be back next week.

Leonard has been riding a stationary bike and participating in 3-on-3 drills to simulate the physical contact of games, but he has done so with staff members and "not my players".

After fears that he would miss the season, Kawhi Leonard may return to the Spurs lineup in time to face the streaking Pelicans.

Leonard confirmed last week with reporters his intent to return to the court this season and expressed a desire to remain in San Antonio for the rest of his career.

PDP removes Drabu over his Kashmir remarks
Sources said the party workers had complained that the former finance minister was ignoring even his own constituency. Separatist Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front leader Yasin Malik said Drabu's statement was aimed at distorting history.


"Soon. I don't have a set date right now".

"The progress I've been making has been great". (The pain) is diminishing. "I feel better, and I'm feeling more comfortable".

Leonard, 26, also played down reports that his camp had requested a trade out of the Spurs.

That can be their only goal for now, but make no mistake about it, if they can get their superstar back to playing at his best, the Spurs will be risky opponents again very soon. I'm thankful for them, for the teammates that I have.

"I'll be surprised if he returns this season", Popovich said on February 21.
