Gregg Popovich likes Kawhi Leonard's progress in return to lethal form

Leonard was ruled out of Sunday night's game at Portland, and the Spurs plan to evaluate Leonard over the next couple of days of its current road trip.

The Blazers secured a narrow 111-110 victory over the visitors who were without Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker, Danny Green and Rudy Gay. San Antonio won 103-89.

The All-Star suffered a shoulder injury in their previous encounter against the Phoenix Suns on Friday night and head coach Gregg Popovich has anxious fans by confirming the extent of the issue.

Uber's Travis Kalanick to net £1bn from selling 29pc of Uber stake
This sale was despite the fact that Alphabet's self-driving vehicle subsidiary Waymo was suing Uber for stealing trade secrets. This may be one of the reasons why Kalanick is selling his shares despite sitting on the board of directors.

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard could miss more time after suffering a partial tear in his shoulder, per Michael C. Wright of ESPN. Fortunately, as of now, there isn't much concern surrounding Leonard's injury, but the team will remain cautious with him, and he should be considered questionable-at-best to play in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Coach Pop is unsure whether the two-time Defensive Player of the Year will play in either game.

"I don't know", Popovich said.

Grigor Dimitrov has Reached the 1/2-final in Brisbane
The first semi-final between De Minaur and Harrison is not before 12.30pm local time, which is 2.30am United Kingdom time. The women's final will feature No. 3-seeded Elina Svitolina against Belarusian qualifier Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

Leonard has played in only eight games this season, having missed the first 27 while recovering from a quad injury.

Since then he has been on a minutes restriction and rested regularly since returning, in true Gregg Popovich fashion, but Leonard has been fairly productive (15.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.8 steals per game over just under 23 minutes per game).
