The long-awaited season debut of San Antonio Spurs’ star Kawhi Leonard will finally be taking place on Tuesday.
Leonard is expected to take the court for the 1st time this season as the Spurs take on the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas.
Leonard has missed all 27 of the Spurs’ games this season while recovering from right quadriceps tendinopathy which is a condition known to cause pain and weakness in the knee.
Leonard last played in Game 1 of last season’s Western Conference finals against the Golden State Warriors, a game in which he hurt his left ankle.
San Antonio has played well without Leonard this season, posting a 19-8 record this season and placing third in the Western Conference.
