Kawhi Leonard returns to NY for rehab

Kawhi Leonard Spurs

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Leonard returned to NY for rehab on Monday.

Leonard has has missed all but nine of the Spurs' 76 games due to the injury.

Led by LaMarcus Aldridge's best season with the team, San Antonio is now fourth in the tightly packed Western Conference.

It is Leonard's second extended trip to NY to consult with his own medical team, although Spurs staff has met with Leonard and are staying abreast of his treatment.

For the second time, he chose to leave the team and travel to New York City to rehabilitate his quad injury. But we have to think that he's not coming back, that we are who we are, and that we got to fight without him.

He has only played in nine games after missing the first 27 outings, and has not featured since he was shut down in January.

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

"Tony exhibited great trust in our whole process from the very beginning because of the lack of historical knowledge of this", Spurs general manager R.C. Buford told ESPN's Michael C. Wright recently.

Get better soon, Kawhi!

The Spurs take on the Houston Rockets on Sunday. "So when he and his group feel he's ready, then he'll be ready". "You've got to make an effort". A recent report by FanSided's Sir Charles in Charge said that the team might end up trading the former NBA Finals MVP to his hometown squad, the Los Angeles Lakers, this summer if head coach Gregg Popovich does not convince him to stay.

With his classic dose of sarcasm, Popovich made it clear that it'll be up to Leonard and "his group" to determine when he will return to the team. "The more you're participating, the more you feel like you're a part of the deal". That's just human nature. What am I gonna do?
