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:

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.
