Warriors-Spurs: Popovich says Kawhi Leonard unlikely to play in Game 4
Spurs have been without their star since the third quarter of Game 1
This isn't much of a surprise, as the Spurs are trailing the series 3-0 and have little to no chance of rattling off four straight wins against Golden State, whether Leonard plays or not. Leonard re-injured his ankle after he landed on Zaza Pachulia's foot in the third quarter of Game 1, and hasn't played since.
Should the Spurs manage to extend the series to five games, we'll have to wait and see if Leonard's ankle is healthy enough for him to make an appearance.
