Some San Antonio Spurs fans were disappointed that they didn't see Kawhi Leonard against the Denver Nuggets last night and were fearing the injury could be much worse than expected. According to Marc Spears on Twitter, there's nothing to worry about Spurs fans:
Spurs assign injured F Kawhi Leonard (knee, quad) to the Austin Toros of the NBA Development League for a medical rehab assignment.

This comes as great news for Spurs fans. Kawhi will be getting some minutes and looking to get into some decent game shape before going into an NBA game. He'll still need work to do but this will come as uplifting news for a team that's needing to recharge with a hellish schedule and a thin roster because of injuries.
