Spurs' Kawhi Leonard Has Partial Tear In Left Shoulder

Kawhi Leonard continues to endure a tough season for the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs don't think the injury is too serious, according to ESPN's Michael C. Wright, and haven't ruled Leonard out for Thursday night's game against the Lakers.

Popovich revealed the injury Sunday before San Antonio's game against the Trail Blazers.

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said Sunday that Leonard suffered a partial tear in his left shoulder during Friday's game.

Leonard has played in only eight games this season after a quad injury sidelined him through mid-December. The club has held out Leonard for five games since he returned December 12 as a component of what it has called "return from injury management".

Leonard had 21 points and three rebounds in 29 minutes against Phoenix. But they'll need him at full health for the playoffs.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
