Kawhi Leonard SG/SF SA 2 Days
Kawhi Leonard had 14 points, five rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in Wednesday's loss to the Lakers.
This game was meaningless and the Spurs simply wanted to get some minutes for Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, who are working their way into playoff shape. Austin Daye scored 13, Tiago Splitter had 12 points and eight rebounds, and Tony Parker had 12 points and four assists in 16 minutes. Cory Joseph also scored 12 and Manu Ginobili had 10 points off the bench. The Spurs get the loser of Dallas-Memphis, which is going down to the wire tonight.

Kawhi Leonard is not in the starting lineup against the Rockets on Monday.
Leonard has been on another level since returning from a hand injury and certainly deserves his rest. The Spurs are going to start Tony Parker, Marco Belinelli, Damion James, Tim Duncan and Aron Baynes. It's certainly possible Kawhi sits out on Wednesday.

Kawhi Leonard was outstanding yet again on Friday vs. the Suns with 18 points, five boards, four assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
The Spurs looked like they were going to pack it in, but Kawhi was a big part of a huge 37-19 third quarter advantage to get the Spurs back in this game. Leonard is ranked eighth in effective field goal percentage this season and his offensive game probably doesn't get the credit it deserves. Additionally, the Spurs have four players in the top 10 for effective field goal percentage, which just goes to show how amazing Gregg Popovich is at his job.

Kawhi Leonard looked like a superstar against the Mavericks during Thursday's 109-100 win with 16 points, 16 boards, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.
He broke out in the playoffs last season and carried that momentum into a spectacular season. Leonard put up a career-high 15 boards tonight and he hit a huge shot to bury the Mavericks. Since his return from injury back on Feb. 26, only Kevin Durant and LeBron James have put up more fantasy value in standard leagues. He's an absolute fantasy monster.

Kawhi Leonard did not start the second half against the Thunder on Thursday, finishing with 17 points, two boards, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.
He had three fouls at half, but brining him off the bench is still a bit strange. Coach Gregg Popovich may have been just toying around with the Thunder and maybe using this game as research for a potential playoff matchup, but who really knows? Regardless, Leonard is a top-10 player in the NBA under the age of 23.
