This is a major disappointment for the Spurs because when healthy, Leonard has become one of the best all-around players in the National Basketball Association.

Kawhi Leonard gets ready to launch to the rim in the first half as.

This setback adds to Kawhi's frustrations this year after he missed the first 27 games of the campaign. At least, that is how head coach Gregg Popovich feels.

Friday against Phoenix, Leonard would suffer a partial tear to his left shoulder. "It depends on how his shoulder goes".

He's played only eight games this season, resting for a game between each of his past seven appearances.

"It's too bad because he was starting to get back into form a little bit after playing a couple of games", Popovich told reporters gathered.

Wright suggests Leonard has not yet been ruled of Thursday night's game against the Los Angeles Lakers, as the Spurs cap a three-game road trip.

The campaign has been filled with injuries for San Antonio but they have rallied and remained competitive regardless of who they have on the floor.

"The first priority right now is making sure everyone is healthy and make sure that we are healthy at the crucial part of the season, going into the playoffs", guard Patty Mills said. "The Klaw" is now averaging 15.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 1.4 steals nightly in the seven games he has played since making his return. Their record is all the more impressive because, in addition to Leonard, players such as Rudy Gay (heel), Danny Green (groin), Kyle Anderson (MCL), Tony Parker (quadriceps) and Joffrey Lauvergne (ankle) have been missing time with their own injuries.
