San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard will not play Thursday against the New Orleans Pelicans, according to a source close to the situation. Yahoo! Sports first reported the news that Leonard wouldn't play. ESPN's Lisa Salters reported on Saturday that Leonard and the Spurs were targeting Thursday's game if he continued to progress on his recovery from a quad injury that has caused him to miss all but nine games this season. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich would not put a timetable on Leonard's return, saying Monday that he would speak with Leonard on Tuesday to evaluate the situation. Leonard has been working out in San Antonio the past few weeks and is feeling "much better," according to the source. There remains optimism that he will return this season, the source said. The Spurs have lost 11 of their last 14 and are currently 10th in the Western Conference standings with 14 games remaining.
