Citing Leonard’s inability to grab or shoot a basketball, Popovich said his perimeter defensive ace would remain sidelined “for weeks.” Nevertheless, Green said Leonard remains relatively upbeat about his situation despite missing 10 consecutive games and 12 of the past 14. “I talked to Kawhi,” Green said. “He seems like he’s in better spirits because he said he got some good news. I don’t think he has to get surgery. I think he might be back sooner than (the media) or Pop expects. He’s a tough kid.” San Antonio Express-News

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich declared Saturday that it will be weeks before Spurs starting small forward Kawhi Leonard’s right hand regains enough basketball function to allow him to suit up for a game. Sidelined since Dec. 15 with a torn ligament near the base of the hand, Leonard is unable to grasp a basketball or make a normal shooting motion. “It’s going to be weeks,” Popovich said. “More weeks. That’s the way it is.” San Antonio Express-News

Starting small forward Kawhi Leonard is expected to return next week despite what has been revealed as a torn ligament in his right hand. Leonard’s injury is officially listed as a bruised right hand. But Spurs coach Gregg Popovich described him as having “something kind of torn in there” before Friday’s home game against Portland, with Leonard then providing further clarification. Leonard said the injury “isn’t as bad as it sounds” and that he should return “soon.” San Antonio Express-News
