Gregg Popovich says Spurs star suffered tear in shoulder

Popovich Reveals New Kawhi Leonard Injury Day Before Kings Face Spurs

"I don't think it will be a while", Popovich said in regards to Leonard's status, per ESPN.

He'll miss a few more after suffering a partial tear in his left shoulder during Friday's 103-89 win over Suns.

It's been an injury-riddled stretch for San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, from an ankle issue that ended his season during last year's playoffs to a quad injury that delayed his 2017-18 season debut until December 12.

The Blazers secured a narrow 111-110 victory over the visitors who were without Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker, Danny Green and Rudy Gay.

They will certainly hope that this latest injury doesn't keep him out for too long.

Specifically, Tesla is now aiming to manufacture 5,000 Model 3 units per week by the end of June. The company said Model 3 deliveries to non-employee customers, "are now accelerating rapidly".

The Spurs were also originally optimistic about the right quad tendinopathy that lingered for Leonard from last season into training camp. Lingering ankle injuries ended his 2016-17 campaign in the third round of the postseason. That injury ultimately cost him the first 27 games of the season.

There's no telling how much this shoulder injury is going to hold him back but it looks like the number of games that he'll miss due to injury or rest this season could reach into the 40s, much higher than anyone would've thought before the season started.

Despite numerous injuries, the Spurs are 27-14 and now in third place in the Western Conference standings. Against the Knicks and Suns, Kawhi would post back-to-back 20-point games.

The two-time National Basketball Association (NBA) Defensive Player of the Year award victor is averaging 15.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.8 steals and a block in under 23 minutes a game this season.
