Great article on Kahwi's injury

This is the best article I have read about Kawhi's injury.

Here is the beginning of the article,

by Dr. Rajpal Brar, 3CB PerformanceMarch 1, 2018
Kawhi Leonard’s quad injury (diagnosed as a quadriceps tendinopathy) has become a bit dramatic for the buttoned-up Spurs franchise. There have been multiple changes in his timetable for return and Coach Pop has openly been stumped about when he will actually return. Since his initial injury in last season’s Western Conference Finals, the Spurs have made it a task to understand Leonard’s injury.

Let’s go through the general timeline and updates of Kawhi’s quad injury:

9/30/17 – Coach Pop reveals that Kawhi has a quad injury, will miss the pre-season, with no timetable for return
10/13/17 – Spurs confirm that Kawhi’s quad injury will keep him out of the regular season opener
11/7/17 – Coach Pop comments that Kawhi’s quad rehab is coming along slower than expected
11/15/17 – When asked, Coach Pop states that Kawhi should be back sooner rather than later
11/28/17 – Tony Parker returns from quad tendon rupture (over a month earlier than he expected)
12/2/17 – Kawhi returns and plays nine games, averaging up 16, five, and two. He doesn’t play in back to back games.
1/17/18 – The Spurs list Kawhi as being out indefinitely because the quad tendon didn’t respond the way the team wanted"
I am never coming back to SpursReport because TimmyDthaWay2B is a horses ass.
