Spurs' Kawhi Leonard eyeing return from quad injury Thursday vs. Pelicans

Spurs' Kawhi Leonard eyeing return from quad injury Thursday vs. Pelicans: report

San Antonio announced on January 17 that Leonard was out "indefinitely", and coach Gregg Popovich said in February that he wouldn't be surprised if Leonard missed the whole season.

Shortly after that, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski indicated that Kawhi was cleared to play, but the decision to return was his.

Melrose has raised its hostile bid for GKN , telling shareholders in the FTSE 100 engineering firm it will be its "final offer". But on Monday Melrose said that it thought that tie-up was "hasty and ill-thought-through".

Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard could return as early as Thursday's game with the Pelicans after missing most of the season with a persistent quadriceps injury, ESPN reported on Saturday.

The principal reason for that is quite simple. He did not make his season debut until December 12 and he did not play in more than two consecutive games.

In the comments of the picture, rumors are rife that Nick is about to undergo a BIG change in Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck's movie. He probably won't be quite as cute as Baby Groot, but Thanos will appear as a child in Avengers: Infinity War .

But Leonard disputed those reports last week, asserting that he said he and the Spurs had always been on the same page during his rehab and that he "for sure" hoped to finish his career in San Antonio. 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. Now with Kawhi presumably back and with a few games under his belt ahead of that game, it's going to be all the more hard for the Jazz and could result in a crucial loss down the stretch. Playoffs and the Spurs seem intertwined and an assumed part of every season, especially with Gregg Popovich as the head coach.

If Leonard were able to return during the week, that would give him a month to readjust to the Spurs before the playoffs.

Packers to trade Damarious Randall to Browns for QB DeShone Kizer
Hundley will be a free agent next year, and most decent backup quarterbacks make much more than the league minimum. He threw 22 interceptions, tanking an offense that had a good offensive line and decent rushing attack.

The Thunder (39-29) jumped to fifth place in the Western Conference while Spurs slipped to seventh, but the home team suffered a blow after Steven Adams sprained his ankle in the third quarter.
