San Antonio star Kawhi Leonard plans to resume working with the team at the Spurs' practice facility this week -- with the hopes of returning to the lineup sometime in March, league sources told ESPN. Leonard has returned to San Antonio from New York, where he spent three weeks seeking further consultation on a right quad injury that has sidelined him for most of the season, league sources said. Leonard isn't expected to immediately start engaging in full five-on-five practices with his teammates, but the goal is to advance toward that level of engagement in the near future, league sources said. In New York, Leonard had been working out at the National Basketball Players Association headquarters gymnasium, sources said. Leonard decided to step away from playing following a nine-game return to the Spurs that ended on January 13. His return to the lineup continues to be based on his comfort level with managing the injury.
