After missing the 27 games this season due to a quad injury, San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard has been “out indefinitely” by the team.
The team said this week that the All-Star would be out for an unspecificed amount of games, as he continued to rehab from right quadriceps tendinopathy.
“Kawhi has made significant progress and continues to move forward in his rehabilitation. This is the best approach for the next steps in his return to play,” Spurs general manager RC Buford said, according to ESPN.
So far this season, Leonard has appeared in just nine games for the Spurs, but his minutes were restricted.
In limited playing time, he is averaging 16.2 points per game.
Leonard is coming off a huge season for the Spurs, in which he averaged career highs in points (25.5) and assists (3.5), alongside 1.8 steals.
