NBA News- Tony Parker Now it’s Time for Kawhi Leonard to Step up


The San Antonio Spurs are going to play Detroit Pistons at home Sunday this will be first of what will be many NBA Picks games without Tony Parker, who is going to miss 4 to 5 weeks due to a sprained ankle sustained on Friday. The good NBA news for the Spurs is that Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan appear to have regained their health after their own bouts with injuries. In fact, Ginobili dished out a career-high 15 dimes Friday and Duncan has averaged a double-double in the seven games since returning from his latest absence.

NBA NewsHowever, Kawhi Leonard said Saturday that although he isn’t concerned about the tendinitis in his left quadriceps, he expects it to linger throughout the remainder of the season, according to Jim McDonald of the Express-News.

“It’s still sore,” Leonard said. “I’m dealing with the pain. I’m not 100 percent with the knee. It’s just the NBA season. Got to keep pushing through it.”

We may end up seeing Leonard pick up the stray DNP-CD down the stretch right along with the veteran Spurs to keep him fresh for the postseason, but Parker’s extended absence could give Leonard the chance to make his mark statistically for fantasy teams. Nando De Colo and Patty Mills likely will handle the rock at the point, but the Spurs should need Leonard to step up and replace Parker’s scoring punch.  Stay tuned to the site for more NBA news regarding The Spurs.
