Kawhi Leonard Expected To Miss Preseason

Kawhi Leonard is in a rehabilitation program  for right quadriceps tendinopathy and is expected to miss the 2017 preseason, the Spurs announced in a press release on Saturday.

Leonard battled a troublesome right quad toward the end of last season and was hampered by a right ankle injury in the playoffs. Despite the injuries, the defensive specialist played in a career-high 74 regular season games averaging 25.5 PPG, 5.8 RPG, and 1.8 SPG.

The 26-year-old came in third place for the NBA Most Valuable Player award, behind winner Russell Westbrook and James Harden.
