Kevin Durant, LaMarcus Aldridge go toe-to-toe in NBA Playoffs

Kawhi Leonard has played nine games for the Spurs this season. More

San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich still sounded as if he had no clue whether Kawhi Leonard would ever rejoin the team for this year's playoffs when he was asked about it Sunday.

In March, Popovich questioned whether the Second Amendment is "useful" any longer, and said Trump "brings out the dark side of human beings" - criticisms that numerous Spurs faithful took personally.

The Spurs trail the Warriors 0-2 in their first round playoff series.

The thinking around the league was that Leonard would not be coming back this season, and on Monday we got word from Yahoo's Shams Charania that the two-time National Basketball Association defensive player of the year would indeed sit out the rest of the season as he continues his rehabilitation in NY.

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is reportedly turning off fans with his anti-Trump rhetoric.

The San Antonio Spurs are suffering through a rough couple of days.


Amick explained that it wasn't long ago Popovich and Aldridge needed a "clear-the-air meeting in the offseason that they say was crucial".

"I have no comment", Aldridge said of the Leonard situation, per Amick. Then, we would have to decide what's going on from there.

Leonard's future in San Antonio is in further doubt with the player now rehabbing in NY as opposed to appearing ringside to support his team-mates.

You can watch a clip of Popovich's response below. He just plays through everything.

The ordeal has thrown Leonard's future with the Spurs into question. It's under the bright lights of the postseason, which means more viewers see this and wonder why Leonard will not sit with his teammates, injury or not, while Stephen Curry supported the Golden State Warriors; Curry is out of Round 1 with a knee injury.
