|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(12/27/14) The Spurs announced guard Tony Parker and forward Kawhi Leonard have been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Rockets.

Meanwhile, Sunday will be the seventh straight game Leonard has missed since suffering a torn ligament in his hand. Forward Kyle Anderson has been starting in Leonard’s place.
The Spurs are 2 1/2-point favorites.
Popovich: Pain tolerance key for return of Spurs F Leonard
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/26/14) Gregg Popovich has stated that pain tolerance will be a key element in the timetable for the return of Spurs small forward Kawhi Leonard, who has missed the last five games with a torn ligament in his right hand.
"It's a pain thing," Popovich told the San Antonio Express-News. "He can't move his hand. He can't catch and dribble and that kind of stuff. ... Medically, they don't think he can hurt it any more, so that's good."
San Antonio has dropped four of five games with Leonard absent from the lineup.

Spurs SF Kawhi Leonard (hand) ruled out Thursday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/24/14) The Spurs have ruled out small forward Kawhi Leonard for Thursday's game against the Thunder with a bruised right hand.
Leonard believed he'd be able to play Thursday, according to a previous report, but coach Gregg Popovich made it clear Monday he didn't expect to have the 2014 NBA Finals MVP available. Leonard has averaged 15.2 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 22 games.
The Spurs are a 5-point favorite at home against the Thunder Thursday, per Vegas Insider.
Kawhi Leonard tells friends he thinks he can play Thursday
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(12/24/14) Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, who's missed four straight games with a torn ligament in his right hand, "has told some of his closest associates he thinks he will be ready to suit up for the Spurs' Christmas Day game against the Oklahoma City Thunder," reports the San Antonio Express-News.
Coach Gregg Popovich has the final say, however. On Monday he "made a Christmas Day appearance by his defensive star seem about as likely as flying reindeer," the paper said. Assuming Leonard is held out, rookie Kyle Anderson and swingman Danny Green would defend Thunder forward Kevin Durant if Durant returns from an ankle sprain that has sidelined him three straight games, the paper added.
Leonard, the 2014 NBA Finals MVP, is averaging 15.2 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 22 games this season.
|Leave it to Greg Poppovich to make an eventual Finals MVP a boring, frustrating Fantasy option. Kawhi Leonard's potential was on full display while he dismantled Miami on basketball's biggest stage, but that Leonard wasn't the one we saw in Fantasy. Instead, we got a run-of-the-mill 12.8 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. His 1.7 steals a night and 52 percent shooting from the field gave him a significant bump up in Rotisserie leagues, and by the end of the year he was a top-notch categories player. He averaged 1.4 made threes per game and shot 86 percent from the free throw line over the last 25 games. He also barely ever turned the ball over and started blocking at least one shot per game over that span. The Leonard we saw down the stretch is worth a pick starting somewhere in the early rounds of Rotisserie drafts. But in points leagues, let him fall to you before the middle of the draft because of how limiting the Spurs system is for individual statistics.
