Spurs Targeting Thursday Return for Kawhi Leonard

Spurs Targeting Thursday Return for Kawhi Leonard

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard reportedly could return from a quad injury as early as Thursday against the New Orleans Pelicans, according to ESPN's Lisa Salters.

Leonard said earlier this week that he planned to return "soon" from a leg injury that has kept him out of all but nine games so far this season.

If Kawhi does return on Thursday, it'll give him 14 games to try and save the team's season and get into the playoffs.

In nine games, Leonard is averaging 16.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.0 steals.

Shortly after that, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski indicated that Kawhi was cleared to play, but the decision to return was his. More information regarding his return should surface during the week, although barring any setbacks, Leonard is expected in the lineup against the Pelicans.

Church of Scientology to launch its own TV channel today
Ron Hubbard set against cheerful B-roll-promises, "The only thing more interesting than what you've heard.is what you haven't". The Church of Scientology , headed by David Miscavige , has always been rumored to be working on its own network.

That streak is in danger as the Spurs sit just one game out of the eighth and final playoff berth in the West.

The San Antonio Spurs need all the help they can get down the stretch.

"I'll be surprised if he returns this season", Popovich said on February 21. When at his best, he's easily one of the top-five players in the league that makes an incredible impact on both ends of the floor.

Leonard confirmed last week with reporters his intent to return to the court this season and expressed a desire to remain in San Antonio for the rest of his career. He did not make his season debut until December 12 and he did not play in more than two consecutive games.

Not to mention that the Western Conference is as loaded and deep as it's ever been. Although San Antonio has been pretty bad of late, they'll certainly be a team to keep a close eye on now with Kawhi Leonard likely set to return on Thursday.
