San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich provided an update Tuesday on Kawhi Leonard, who has missed 10 games due to right quadriceps tendinopathy, saying the two-time All-Star forward is "just coming along more slowly" than expected in rehabilitation. "It's just been more difficult for him to get through the rehab routine," Popovich said. Leonard hasn't played for the Spurs since Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, and he missed that series due to an ankle injury. Leonard came into training camp on San Antonio's injured list but hasn't yet been able to practice with the team, which is also missing veteran point guard Tony Parker, who underwent surgery during the offseason to repair a ruptured left quadriceps tendon. Parker spent time working on a rehabilitation assignment with the team's G League affiliate and took part in some work Tuesday during San Antonio's morning shootaround in advance of Tuesday's game against the Clippers.
