San Antonio Spurs guard Kyle Anderson likely has MCL strain

07 December 2017

The Spurs star said, according to Michael C. Wright of ESPN: "I feel good".

The San Antonio Spurs still don't have a specific date for Kawhi Leonard's return from right quadriceps tendinopathy, but on Monday, the All-Star forward spoke with reporters for the first time since the team's media day on September 25 and he has hinted that he would be making his season debut sooner rather than later.

Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs looks on during the game against the Golden State Warriors in Game One of the Western Conference Finals of the 2017 NBA Playoffs on May 14, 2017 at ORACLE Arena in Oakland, California. However, Leonard sat out the game against the Detroit Pistons on Monday, and he has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Miami Heat as well.

The Spurs initially announced during training camp that Leonard would miss the preseason due to the quadriceps issue, but he has been unable to return as the season has progressed, with the club racking up a record of 15-8 in his absence.

The two will then travel to Rockport, Texas to meet with a family who was left homeless by the storm. Also taking part in the visit were Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott and Land Commissioner George P.

Well, sitting on the sidelines can be pretty frustrating for a competitive player like Leonard. It's another home game, too, the logical location for him to come back. He's a pretty unique dude.

Popovich's standard answer this season when asked about Leonard has been that he will return "sooner rather than later". And he wants to get back. Anderson has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 MCL sprain and is expected to miss two to three weeks.

Making a start at power forward in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (rest), Kyle Anderson left late in the third quarter and did not return after going down with a noncontact knee injury. "Everybody gets injuries. You've just got to deal with it". Rather, he said, "it was just wear and tear".
