Spurs' Kawhi Leonard: Expected to remain out through playoffs

Leonard (quadriceps) isn't expected to suit up for the Spurs at any point during the playoffs, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

Leonard continues to rehab his right quad injury in New York under the supervision of his personal medical team. With the Spurs likely to be eliminated from the playoffs in the next week or two by the second-seeded Warriors, Leonard won't have enough time to make a full recovery, so he'll err on the side of caution and sit out the rest of the postseason. If that holds true, Leonard will finish his seventh NBA campaign having appeared in just nine games. Leonard is eligible for a super-max contract extension this offseason, though it's unclear if the Spurs will commit to it in light of reports that there may be some tension between the two sides.
