Kawhi Leonard now out with shoulder injury

Kawhi Leonard now out with shoulder injury

San Antonio Spurs star forward Kawhi Leonard has a partial tear in his left shoulder, head coach Gregg Popovich announced.

Leonard had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Spurs have two more games on their current road trip as they'll take on the Sacramento Kings on Monday and the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday.

The game against the Suns was just Leonard's eighth appearance of the season after missing the first 27 games with right quadriceps tendinopathy.

Nicole Kidman joins Instagram, posts about her 'special' Golden Globes night
We all know that one of the most baffling moments of the Oscars previous year was Nicole Kidman's weird, weird seal clap. Reese Witherspoon was so "overwhelmed " Big Little Lies' Golden Globes victories that she "cried 16 times".

Because of that, we can expect San Antonio to keep Leonard off the court until they're certain he can't do any further damage. In addition to Leonard, eight players are averaging at least eight points per game.

The 26-year-old also famously missed time in the postseason because of a sprained ankle, in part leading to the Spurs' exit in the Western Conference Finals.

Making sure Leonard is, and ideally can remain, fully healthy is obviously a high priority for the Spurs.

The two-time All-Star is coming off the best year of his career, averaging 25.5 points and 5.8 rebounds per game to finish third in MVP voting. Popovich's squad has relied on a group effort rather than an individual replacement for Leonard's scoring.
