Kawhi Leonard will make his return to the San Antonio Spurs' lineup Wednesday against the Sacramento Kings. The reigning NBA Defensive Player of the Year had missed the last three games with left calf tightness.
The Spurs went 2-1 in a three-game in four-night stretch without Leonard following the All-Star break. After Wednesday, they have two games left on their annual "rodeo road trip" - where the team's AT&T Center is overtaken for two weeks by the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo - in Utah and Houston.
The team's leading scorer in addition to its defensive anchor, Leonard is averaging 20.2 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, while shooting a league-leading 48.2 percent from beyond the arc. He currently ranks fourth in the NBA in win shares (9.6), fourth in box plus-minus (7.9), and fifth in player efficiency rating (25.7).
