San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard won't take part in his team's preseason campaign as he rehabilitates a quadriceps injury, the Spurs announced Saturday (h/t NBA writer Paul Garcia).

Leonard has only gotten better as his career progresses. The 26-year-old has developed into one of the top two-way players in the NBA, finishing third in the MVP Award race last season behind only Russell Westbrook and James Harden. He averaged a career-high 25.5 points per game while also maintaining the elite level of defense that earned him two Defensive Player of the Year awards.

Though the injury doesn't appear to be serious, San Antonio will hope its star is ready to go come the regular season.
