Kawhi Leonard To Skip Team USA Minicamp

Kawhi Leonard

Kawhi Leonard reportedly carried out his medical with the Toronto Raptors on Saturday

While talking about the Leonard-Spurs drama, Robinson said the new Toronto Raptor is a hard guy to understand. Leonard possibly was going to use the event as a chance to showcase the status of his recovery. When Spurs officials came to NY to check on him, he reportedly hid from them, reflecting the bizarrely extreme state of his estrangement from the team.

Green disclosed in his debut podcast earlier in the day that he played the end of the season on a torn groin which went undetected by the Spurs. "[It says] slight strain, take a couple weeks off".

Danny Green, who was sent to the Raptors with Leonard, and DeMar DeRozan, now with the Spurs, also have passed their physicals.

So far, fans know when the San Antonio Spurs will play preseason hoops, but the 2018-19 regular season schedule remains in the balance. "I think the whole time he's been here I've talked to him maybe a handful of times", Robinson said. "They've always been great to me, they've always done right by me, they've always done a hell of a job".

The players had a week to report to their teams and pass physicals.

Leonard, who is still rehabbing from his quad injury, is close to feeling 100 percent - "He's at 96, 97 percent", a source told the Express-News - and anticipates being ready for the start training camp in September. "So I'm sure if Kawhi would have said, 'Hey, I want a Bentley, ' or 'I want this, ' or whatever, the Spurs would have done everything in their power to make that happen for him". Coach Gregg Popovich then offered vague descriptions of his star player's condition as Leonard missed the season opener and many more games after that, not returning to the court until December 12, 28 games into the season. His passed physical, reported Tuesday by ESPN's Brian Windhorst, means that the trade is official, and Leonard's health is no longer the Spurs' problem.

"No, Toronto isn't LA which is where you think you want to be, but if you're serious about winning titles and building on the legacy you've already begun as an National Basketball Association player, Toronto isn't a bad place to do it".
