Kawhi Leonard scored 25 points on 9-of-18 shooting on Sunday, to go with three boards, one assist, two 3-pointers and two turnovers in 26 minutes.
Leonard tied his career-high for most points scored in a single quarter by dropping 16 points during the first quarter of action, and he would have had an even more impressive stat line had this game not been a massive blowout. This was San Antonio's fourth straight win, and with the way they've been playing, it would be shocking if they didn't secure the No. 2 seed out West. Feb 26 - 5:58 PM

Kawhi Leonard scored 21 points during a 105-97 win over the Clippers on Friday, adding three rebounds, six assists, one steal and three turnovers in 31 minutes.

He only played 15 minutes in the All-Star Game because he wanted to rest up for the second half, so coach Gregg Popovich is rubbing off on him. For what it's worth, Kawhi actually played 2.0 minutes per game after the break last year compared to before the break with a higher usage rate along the way. His fantasy owners shouldn't expect too much of a drop off until April.

Kawhi Leonard didn't play in the second half of Sunday's All-Star game, logging 15 minutes during the West's 192-182 victory.

Leonard finished the defense-free exhibition with four points, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 15 minutes. He's healthy and there's nothing to worry about here -- if nothing else, he'll be extra rested for Friday's home game vs. the Clippers.

Kawhi Leonard doesn’t believe the Spurs should make a trade before Thursday’s NBA trade deadline.

"I think we’re doing good right now," Leonard said on Friday. "It’s all about team chemistry. You’ve always got to figure out the best way for you and your team, but I think we’re doing a good job right now." The Spurs, at 43-13, have the second-best record in the NBA at the All-Star break, and Leonard is a major reason why. Prior to this year, Kawhi had only four games with 30-plus points in his regular season career (324 games). This season, he has 19 such games.

Kawhi Leonard hit 13-of-23 shots and two 3-pointers on his way to 32 points, six rebounds, three assists and four steals in Monday's 110-106 win over the Pacers, his former team.

The Pacers drafted Leonard and then traded him for, cough, George Hill, so while this was technically a revenge game, we doubt Leonard gets any more fired up to the play the Pacers than he does any other team. He came through in a big way in a back-to-back scenario after scoring 36 points with a monster line in Sunday's loss to the Knicks. As long as Leonard's in the starting lineup for the Spurs, he belongs in your fantasy lineup. He's now scored 30 or more points in four straight games after getting a day of rest a week ago.
Feb 13 - 9:56 PM

Kawhi Leonard scored a game-high 36 points in a loss on Sunday, making 13-of-27 FGs and 9-of-11 FTs with nine rebounds, four assists, four steals and one 3-pointer.

Leonard has now scored at least 30 points in 18 games this season, and he's done it in three straight. His efforts weren't enough for a win tonight, but he has propelled the Spurs to a 41-13 record, which is second-best in the NBA. He's quietly been a top-five roto option this year, in line with preseason expectations.
Feb 12 - 6:48 PM

Kawhi Leonard scored 32 points with six rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in a 103-92 win over the Pistons on Friday.

This isn't even news. Leonard is coming off a 32-point Wednesday and he scored 28.6 points per game in January. Leonard has quietly moved into the top 10 for scoring this season with his sharp upward trend, and he also has career highs in dimes and treys. He's fantasy's No. 4 player in standard leagues this season.
Feb 10 - 11:00 PM

Kawhi Leonard (quad) returned on Wednesday with a game-high 32 points on 9-of-18 FGs and 11-of-11 FTs, adding three 3-pointers, six rebounds, five assists and just two turnovers in 37 minutes.

Leonard was a late scratch on Monday due to a right quad contusion, and without him the Spurs scored their fewest points of the season on their lowest FG percentage (36.6 percent) and 3-point percentage (21.1 percent). The injury didn't limit him tonight, obviously, and his owners still get two more games this week on Friday (at Detroit) and Sunday (at New York).
Feb 8 - 10:32 PM

Updating a previous report, Kawhi Leonard (quad) will play Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

Gregg Popovich implied that Leonard would play after he was a full go during shootaround, and he's not being listed on the injury report, so owners can go ahead and get him active for tonight's game. Jonathon Simmons will return to the bench with Kawhi active, and LaMarcus Aldridge will return to being the No. 2 guy on offense.
Feb 8 - 12:28 PM

Gregg Popovich said it looks like Kawhi Leonard (quad) will play Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

Leonard was a late scratch on Monday with a minor quad issue, but it's looking like he'll end up only spending one game on the sidelines. Leonard's return to action will shift Jonathon Simmons back to the bench and LaMarcus Aldridge's usage rate will take a slight hit. Owners can expect to get official confirmation on Leonard's status closer to tip-off.

Kawhi Leonard is a late scratch on Monday vs. the Grizzlies with a right quad contusion.

This obviously isn't ideal with the Spurs set to begin an eight-game road trip tonight. With Leonard out, Kyle Anderson and Jonathon Simmons should get some additional burn on the wings, but standard-league owners can leave them on the wire unless we learn that Leonard will miss more time. The Spurs travel to Philly on Wednesday to take on the 76ers.
Feb 6 - 8:43 PM

Kawhi Leonard scored 19 points with eight rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks and no turnovers during a 102-86 win over the 76ers on Thursday.

With LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) out and Dario Saric guarding him, Leonard was a little disappointing for his fantasy owners here. This game was a little more like Klaw circa 2014, and not like the Leonard who just turned in 65.5 true shooting percentage and a 31.0 usage rate in January. Leonard is a top-five player this season and will be a top-five player for a long time.
Feb 3 - 12:16 AM

Kawhi Leonard scored 36 points in Tuesday's 108-94 win over the Thunder.

He was incredible, hitting 13-of-26 from the field and 9-of-11 from the line with eight rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one triple in 36 minutes. He now has 15 games with 30+ points this season, the most by a Spur since Tim Duncan had 16 back in 2002-03. Leonard should crush that by the end of the season and should be a top-5 fantasy option the rest of the way.
Jan 31 - 11:36 PM

Kawhi Leonard (hand) returned from a two-game absence in Friday's 119-103 loss to the Pelicans and scored 23 points on 6-of-16 shooting.

Leonard scored 30+ points in his previous six games and had the most points any player has ever had in a six-game span under Gregg Popovich (206), but his streak ended tonight. He was scoreless in the first quarter, but he eventually got it going with six rebounds, six assists, one steal and two triples in 30 minutes. He was a perfect 9-of-9 from the field and his hand wasn't an issue, but expect a better performance on Sunday vs. the Mavericks.
Jan 28 - 12:18 AM

Kawhi Leonard (hand) and Tony Parker (foot) will play against the Pelicans on Friday.

After Leonard went through practice with no issues on Thursday, he should be a full go for this game. It's a sneaky good matchup for him and he was as hot as he's ever been as a scorer, so DFS owners can probably sneak Leonard in with an ownership discount right now.
