Gregg Popovich says Spurs star suffered tear in shoulder

Fantasy Basketball Breaking News

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich revealed the extent of the injury before yesterday's against the Portland Trail Blazers.

He'll miss a few more after suffering a partial tear in his left shoulder during Friday's 103-89 win over Suns.

Leonard (shoulder) will not play in Monday's game against the Kings, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

The All-Star suffered a shoulder injury in their previous encounter against the Phoenix Suns on Friday night and head coach Gregg Popovich has anxious fans by confirming the extent of the issue.

On the plus side, the team believes he could return by Thursday against the Los Angeles Lakers, per Wright.

"I don't know [when Kawhi will return]", Pop said. He has also won two Defensive Player of the Year awards. "It depends on how his shoulder goes". He appeared to be rounding into form lately, with back-to-back 20-plus point games against the New York Knicks and the Phoenix Suns and at least 18 points in each of his last four games.

Leonard was forced to miss the first 27 games of the season with a quadriceps injury.

Leonard has played in eight games this season, averaging 15.9 points and 4.3 rebounds per game for the 27-13 Spurs.

"It's disappointing. We need him", veteran Manu Ginobili said.
