Kawhi Leonard tied a career-high with 32 points on 12-of-21 shooting, three treys, eight boards, one steal and one block, but had to leave a blowout in the fourth quarter due to a quad injury and did not return.
Leonard was followed by one trainer and the rest of them did not leave their seats. There were no obvious red flag reports after the game. If anything the silence was a bit curious. After the game Tony Parker provided quotes to the AP, saying such an injury usually requires minimal rest. “Depends, but, two, three days, you know,” Parker said. “I don’t think it’s that bad.” We’ve been scouring the Internet and haven’t found much more than Pop saying that he didn’t know much. The Spurs are going to play it as safe as it gets with their most important player and there aren’t any real beneficiaries except for maybe Kevin Martin.
Pop said he's not sure if Kawhi will miss any games, but said it would have been silly for him to put him back in after sustaining the blow
