Kawhi Leonard double-doubled against the Mavericks on Sunday with 11 points, 10 boards and one turnover in 31 minutes.
While he didn't do much on the stat sheet, Leonard's presence was clearly evident. He didn't have a steal, block or a 3-pointer today, which is the first time he's failed to do so since Jan. 4. His length really helped the Spurs late in this game and helped put the clamps on the Dallas' offense late, so the Mavs will have to do a better job of keeping him from getting involved on plays on the weak side.

Kawhi Leonard had 14 points, five rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in Wednesday's loss to the Lakers.

This game was meaningless and the Spurs simply wanted to get some minutes for Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, who are working their way into playoff shape. Austin Daye scored 13, Tiago Splitter had 12 points and eight rebounds, and Tony Parker had 12 points and four assists in 16 minutes. Cory Joseph also scored 12 and Manu Ginobili had 10 points off the bench. The Spurs get the loser of Dallas-Memphis, which is going down to the wire tonight.

Kawhi Leonard is not in the starting lineup against the Rockets on Monday.

Leonard has been on another level since returning from a hand injury and certainly deserves his rest. The Spurs are going to start Tony Parker, Marco Belinelli, Damion James, Tim Duncan and Aron Baynes. It's certainly possible Kawhi sits out on Wednesday.
Apr 14 - 6:49 PM

Kawhi Leonard was outstanding yet again on Friday vs. the Suns with 18 points, five boards, four assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

The Spurs looked like they were going to pack it in, but Kawhi was a big part of a huge 37-19 third quarter advantage to get the Spurs back in this game. Leonard is ranked eighth in effective field goal percentage this season and his offensive game probably doesn't get the credit it deserves. Additionally, the Spurs have four players in the top 10 for effective field goal percentage, which just goes to show how amazing Gregg Popovich is at his job.

Kawhi Leonard looked like a superstar against the Mavericks during Thursday's 109-100 win with 16 points, 16 boards, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

He broke out in the playoffs last season and carried that momentum into a spectacular season. Leonard put up a career-high 15 boards tonight and he hit a huge shot to bury the Mavericks. Since his return from injury back on Feb. 26, only Kevin Durant and LeBron James have put up more fantasy value in standard leagues. He's an absolute fantasy monster.
Apr 11 - 1:08 AM

Kawhi Leonard erupted for 26 points on 12-of-13 shooting in Sunday's win, and Gregg Popovich said he wants to increase Kawhi's playing time in the final games of the regular season.

Two of his makes came from downtown and he added five assists while torturing the Grizzlies in just 30 minutes of action. "He's somebody we want to play as many minutes as possible against the other team's best player," Popovich said before the game. "He's never been able to [play extra minutes]. It's either been a lockout season or he's been injured and we had to limit his minutes." Roto league owners riding Kawhi to the finish line have to be thrilled both by tonight's huge game and the prospect of a bigger role, as his per-minute production is through the roof.
Apr 6 - 9:40 PM

Kawhi Leonard did not start the second half against the Thunder on Thursday, finishing with 17 points, two boards, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

He had three fouls at half, but brining him off the bench is still a bit strange. Coach Gregg Popovich may have been just toying around with the Thunder and maybe using this game as research for a potential playoff matchup, but who really knows? Regardless, Leonard is a top-10 player in the NBA under the age of 23.
Apr 3 - 11:10 PM

Kawhi Leonard returned after suffering an eye injury on Saturday vs. the Pelicans, finishing with 15 points, five boards, two assists, one steal, one block sand two 3-pointers in just 23 minutes.

His shooting percentages had tailed off a bit, making just 45.3 percent from the field over his previous five with average of 13.6 points, 5.8 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.0 blocks, 1.4 steals and 1.6 treys. Leonard has put up first-round value over the past two weeks and second-round value on the season on a per-week basis. He’s a fantasy superstar and is just 22 years old.
Mar 30 - 12:59 AM

Kawhi Leonard suffered a sore right eye in the first quarter vs. the Pelicans and has been cleared to return.

Hopefully everything is fine with Kawhi and he sounds like he should be good to go. Leonard is on fire on the stat sheet and will look to keep the ball rolling at home tonight.
Mar 29 - 8:48 PM

Kawhi Leonard scored 15 points on 4-of-11 shooting (2-of-6 3PTs, 5-of-6 FTs) with seven rebounds, one steal and one block in Friday's win over the Kings.

Leonard is who we thought he was -- it just took him an early season slump and hand injury to get there. He is the No. 4 and 9 play in fantasy leagues over the last month in 9- and 8-cat leagues, respectively. Tim Duncan added 10 points, nine boards, six assists and two blocks in the win.
Mar 22 - 3:09 AM

Kawhi Leonard hit 8-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for a season-high 22 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in Wednesday's win over the Lakers.

Every starter on the Spurs went off tonight and Leonard is living up to the hype over the last few weeks. And over his last five games, he's rocking 14.0 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.2 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 3-pointers on 56 percent shooting. This was his first double-double since Christmas and just his fifth of the year, but he's posting highly efficient and productive lines every time out right now.
Mar 20 - 2:29 AM

Kawhi Leonard made six of his eight shots on Wednesday for 12 points vs. the Blazers with nine boards, one assist, two steals and one block in 35 minutes.

There are not many guys doing what Kawhi has done since his return from a hand injury. In his previous seven games, he averaged 15.0 points, 6.7 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.6 blocks, 2.4 steals and 1.7 triples on 54.4 percent from the field and 95.0 percent from the line. Leonard is a potential fantasy superstar and he's only 22 years old.
Mar 13 - 12:41 AM

Kawhi Leonard expects to shed the wrap on his right hand in "about a week."

He's been wearing the wrap since returning from a fractured hand in late February, though it certainly hasn't affected his production -- he's averaging 15.6 points on 56.0 percent shooting in the Spurs' past five games, with 1.8 threes, 6.6 rebounds, 2.4 steals and 1.4 blocks.
Mar 12 - 1:44 PM

Kawhi Leonard stayed hot on Saturday, hitting 5-of-6 shots and a 3-pointer for 17 points, seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks in 38 minutes.

He's stealth, as he continues to rack up great fantasy lines without scoring a ton of points or drawing much attention to himself. He's been outstanding since returning from a broken hand and should be in fantasy lineups any time the Spurs are in action.
Mar 8 - 11:25 PM

Kawhi Leonard hit just 4-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, five rebounds, zero assists and five steals in Thursday's win over the Heat.

He wasn't a great fantasy player tonight, but he shut down LeBron James in real life and most of his five steals came against the King. Leonard should be more focused on offense on Saturday against the Magic, meaning he should put up better fantasy numbers in that one. Despite tonight's line, the minutes are there and he is playing at a very high level, so make sure he's in your lineup, regardless of his opponent.
