Kawhi Leonard will miss time with a partial tear in his shoulder

Blazers Host Spurs Again Before Hitting The Road

It now appears that Leonard will miss even more time, as Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said that his All-Star forward has a tear in his shoulder.

Despite Leonard's injuries, the Spurs own the fifth-best record in the National Basketball Association as they embark on a road trip, beginning with Sunday night's matchup with the Blazers.

However, Popovich has managed to guide San Antonio to 27-13, good for third place in the West, heading into Sunday's contest.

Mohamed Salah wins African Player of the Year for 2017
National coaches, Confederation of African Football (CAF) officials, journalists and the public were involved in the voting. Mohamed Salah topped off an incredible 2017 by being crowned the African Player of the Year on Thursday evening.

Leonard has only played in eight games this season, having returned on December 12 but having been held out of four of the Spurs' past 10 games, as the team has tried to manage his recovery. "It depends on how his shoulder goes".

After missing most of the start of the season due to a quad injury, Leonard will now be limited by a shoulder injury. The club has held out Leonard for five games since he returned on December 12 as a component of what it has called "return from injury management". According to ESPN's Michael C. Wright, the Spurs aren't too concerned about the injury and they hope Leonard will be able to play on Thursday against the Lakers. But they'll need him at full health for the playoffs.
