Sources: San Antonio star Kawhi Leonard is expected to remain out through Thursday’s game against New Orleans. He plans to continue evaluating the quadriceps injury for a hopeful return.

The Spurs, of course, could use all the help they can get. Right now they find themselves in 10th, and are close to missing the postseason for the first time in two decades. But here’s the thing: Leonard hasn’t been able to play much this season. Injuries have limited him to just nine appearances.
But any form of Kawhi could be a good thing down the stretch. On the other hand, while it’s true that the Spurs need bodies, they need to be careful with their franchise player.
