While it seems Kawhi Leonard may have partially torn his shoulder, the Spurs donít seem particularly concerned about the injury. Immediately after mentioning the tear to Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News, head coach Gregg Popovich said that the forward could potentially return before the end of the teamís three-game road trip.
According to ESPNís Michael Wright, Leonard has not even been formally ruled out for Thursdayís game.
Interesting to note Pop doesn't seem to take it serious, but always wondered at what point does a player become considered injury prone?
TP to the OP for the question.
I am amazed that that this specific, salient question is swept under the rug by the Anthony Davis sentiment that permeates this board.
Not only are threads devoted to his acquisition, but even in threads that start off having nothing to do with AD, the conversation often will get around (devolve, in my opinion) to how that specific matter discussed impacts either acquiring AD or affects AD when he gets here, presuming that NOT acquiring AD is not even an entertain-able thought.
But for his durability issues, AD is the PERFECT fit for our Cs.
Age, skillset, competitive fire>>>>>PERFECT.............BUT.......
AD is the definition of injury-prone. He has already missed 6 games this year. Last year was the only year that he played over (barely) 70 games. His season has been ended twice due to left knee injuries, the same knee that he hurt at the beginning of this year and missed time.
But AD's knee is just the tip (although a troublesome, recurring, problematic tip) of his litany of injuries iceberg.
AD>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>injury prone.....this sounds like fertile ground for a thread on whether we should acquire AD or not and if so, at what cost.
