Spurs coach Gregg Popovich didn’t rule out the possibility of Kawhi Leonard (quad) returning to Spurs homestand that starts November 2nd.
“Sure, anything is possible,” Popovich said after shootaround Wednesday morning. “But I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about when somebody is going to come back. Because they are going to come back when they are ready, when the docs say they are ready. So when that happens, that happens.” This is quite a vague quote from Pop so there is no guarantee that Leonard (quad) is back by November 2nd. On the bright side at least he didn’t immediately rule him out. The Spurs are 3-0 without the All-Star so they are unlikely to rush him back into action until he is fully healthy. Rudy Gay and Danny Green will continue to benefit the most from his absence with LaMarcus Aldridge also carrying a heavier load.
