Gregg Popovich’s Promising Kawhi Leonard Update


The San Antonio Spurs have had a decent start to the 2017/18 NBA season. After 18 games, the Spurs have a 15 and 7 record and currently sit in 3rd place of the Western Conference.

So, everything as usual? Well, yes and no. Yes, because the Spurs are always expected to finish in the top 4, no because they managed to start this well without their star player, Kawhi Leonard.

When it comes to injury updates and timetables, the Spurs are one of the worst teams. They won’t make any prognoses and barley update the media. But now, San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich gave a promising update:


“He’s starting to feel in a little bit better shape and feeling more confident. Those are the last steps,” Popovich said. “That’s what Tony (Parker) did before he came back.”


Tony Parker needed about two weeks from the time he felt good enough to play before Pop let him play again. It it looks like Kawhi really will be back sooner than later.
