Leonard's (ankle) rehab is reportedly coming along slowly and he's expected to be out at least a few more weeks, Tom Orsborn of San Antonio Express-News reports. "It's just been more difficult for [Leonard] to get through the rehab routine. His body hasn't reacted the same way," coach Gregg Popovich said comparing Leonard and Tony Parker's rehab. Tony is at the point where he has been going five on five and that sort of thing. He's not totally confident. It will be a few more weeks. But he's definitely going in the right direction, and so is Kawhi. It's just been taking a little bit longer."

EDGE Analysis

Leonard has yet to go through any sort of three-on-three or five-on-five work and coach Popovich made it sound like he expects him to sit out at least a few more weeks. In fact, Tony Parker (quad) appears to be healing quicker and could take the floor before Leonard. Either way, Leonard can be considered out for another at least the next six games, and it wouldn't be surprising if his absence lingered into late November or early December. That said, another update should be provided once Leonard is able to resume practicing.

Leonard (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Clippers.

EDGE Analysis

The Spurs continue to remain mum on a potential timetable for Leonard's return, though they'll likely be as a cautious as possible with their superstar as he works back from a quad injury. Look for Leonard to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis, with his next shot to take the court coming on Friday against the Bucks.

Leonard (quad) remains out Sunday against the Suns, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Leonard will remain out as he works back from a quad injury. The All-NBA First-Teamer is yet to take the floor this season and the Spurs will continue to handle his status on a game-to-game basis.

Leonard (quad) has officially been ruled out for Friday's game against the Hornets.

EDGE Analysis

The Spurs continue to reveal very little with regard to Leonard's status, and he's apparently being evaluated on a game-to-game basis. However, there's little evidence to suggest a return is imminent, so expect Rudy Gay and Kyle Anderson to keep picking up extra minutes in his stead. Technically, Leonard's next chance to play will come Sunday against the Suns.

Leonard (quadriceps) has 'no possibility' of taking the floor Thursday against the Warriors, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Spurs are still keeping Leonard relatively day-to-day with a quad injury, though Osborn has confidence that the star forward will still be sidelined Thursday. Unfortunately, fantasy owners with Leonard on their team are probably just going to have to wait the situation out.

Leonard (quad) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Celtics, according to the team's game notes.

EDGE Analysis

Leonard is still yet to play this season while battling a somewhat-mysterious quad injury, but the general belief is that the All-Star will make his debut sometime in the near future. Assuming he does remain out Monday, Leonard's next chance to play would come Thursday, when the Spurs return home to face the Warriors. For the time being, expect Kyle Anderson and Rudy Gay to continue to benefit from Leonard's absence.

Leonard (quad) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

EDGE Analysis

San Antonio continues to be tight-lipped regarding Leonard's status, but he's still yet to play this season while battling a right quad injury. We'll continue to update Leonard's status on a game-to-game basis, though it's difficult to estimate when, exactly, he'll make his season debut. Expect Kyle Anderson and Rudy Gay to keep picking up increased minutes in Leonard's stead.

Leonard (quad) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Magic.

EDGE Analysis

The Spurs refuse to give any sort of timetable for a return with Leonard and will instead, continue to evaluate him on a game-to-game basis. He doesn't appear to have returned to full contact practices, but once he does, that should be an indicator that Leonard's on the brink of a return. In the meantime, look for Kyle Anderson to pick up another start at small forward, with Rudy Gay picking up extra minutes off the bench.

Leonard (quad) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

EDGE Analysis

There still haven't been any signs that point to Leonard nearing a return, as he'll now miss his fourth straight game. He remains without a concrete recovery timetable, so the All-Star forward will continue to be evaluated on a game-by-game basis. Kyle Anderson is expected to continue to start in Leonard's absence, with Rudy Gay seeing additional minutes off the bench.

Leonard (quad) will remain sidelined for Monday's matchup against the Raptors.

EDGE Analysis

Leonard is reportedly progressing well in his recovery from right quadriceps tendinopathy and he even traveled with the team to Chicago over the weekend for Saturday's matchup with the Bulls. While that is all certainly encouraging, Leonard won't be ready for Monday's contest and there still hasn't been a concrete timetable given for his expected return. He'll continue to be evaluated on a day-to-day basis, but in the meantime, both Kyle Anderson and Rudy Gay should benefit with boosted minutes at small forward.
