The Spurs say that Kawhi suffered a partial shoulder tear and that he's been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers.

The San Antonio Spurs have hit the halfway point of the 2017-18 regular season.

The Spurs took an extra cautious route with Kawhi Leonard's return and have maintained that path upon his return.

Expect at least two new BlackBerry smartphones in 2018, says TCL
Something new the Bronze Edition of the KeyOne has is dual-SIM support, which is popular in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. TCL's also bringing the previously launched BlackBerry Motion to United States shores and pricing it at $449.99.

Pop told reporters after the loss to the Blazers that the small forward has a "partial tear" in his left shoulder but he doesn't expect his star player to miss too much time.

The campaign has been filled with injuries for San Antonio but they have rallied and remained competitive regardless of who they have on the floor.

Leonard has only played in eight games this season, having returned on December 12 but having been held out of four of the Spurs' past 10 games, as the team has tried to manage his recovery. While Leonard is without a timetable for a return, the team doesn't think the shoulder injury is serious. The two-time National Basketball Association defensive player of the year was known to have a shoulder injury but not necessarily one of that potential severity.

Secret SpaceX 'Zuma' launch scheduled for Sunday
The webcast of the launch did not follow the second stage carrying the payload after it separated from the first stage. This is SpaceX's third classified mission, and arguably its most secretive flight for the U.S. military.

Coach Pop is unsure whether the two-time Defensive Player of the Year will play in either game.

"The first priority right now is making sure everyone is healthy and make sure that we are healthy at the crucial part of the season, going into the playoffs", guard Patty Mills said.

San Antonio Spurs forward/center LaMarcus Aldridge scored 30 points (13-of-20 field goals, 5-of-6 free throws) with 12 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block, and 1 turnover in Monday's 107-100 win over the Sacramento Kings.
