  • Kawhi Leonard's injury woes continue with partial tear in left shoulder

It's been an injury-riddled stretch for San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, from an ankle issue that ended his season during last year's playoffs to a quad injury that delayed his 2017-18 season debut until December 12. The club has held out Leonard for five games since he returned December 12 as a component of what it has called "return from injury management". "It's too bad because he was starting to get back into form a little bit after playing a couple of games". Leonard sat out most of the first two months of the season as he worked his way back from a hip injury, and when he made his return the Spurs were quick to keep his workload down.

On the plus side, the team believes he could return by Thursday against the Los Angeles Lakers, per Wright. But a dismal road record (9-12) is a chink in that armor, particularly with five of their next six games coming away from AT&T Center.

Flooding at JFK airport adds to misery after flight delays
Terminal 4 arrivals at JFK Airport are now reopened after a water main break caused chaos and suspended global arrivals. The airport on Twitter advised travelers to check with their airlines before arriving.

As the second half dawns Monday night, the Spurs' top priority is getting everyone healthy, especially, of course, Leonard. Popovich said before Sunday's game in Portland he wasn't sure whether Leonard would play at any point during the Spurs' road trip. In addition to Leonard, eight players are averaging at least eight points per game.
