Tony Parker: Kawhi Leonard to return in 2-3 weeks
Kawhi Leonard’s quadriceps injury has been mysterious to the Spurs.
But Tony Parker – set to return tonight from his own quadriceps injury – shed light on Leonard’s timeline.
Michael C. Wright:
Tony Parker said he practiced some with Kawhi Leonard during the rehab process and said the forward is "close" to being back to normal.— Michael C. Wright (@mikecwright) November 27, 2017
Parker said when he practiced with Leonard, he "forgot that he was that good." Parker added: "It’s still going to be, like I said, a couple of weeks, three weeks. They’re not going to take any risks. But he’s looking good so far. What he did with me, he’s looking good.”— Michael C. Wright (@mikecwright) November 27, 2017
I wouldn’t call 2-3 weeks “close,” but maybe Parker would. Or maybe he’s just adding more uncertainty to our understanding of Leonard’s injury.
San Antonio has been fine without its best player, and Parker will help keep the Spurs afloat. But they can’t really take off until Leonard returns – whenever that is.
