Kawhi Leonard is either in pain, being careful, or trolling us

Video of Kawhi boarding the team’s charter to Chicago is frightening, routine, or hilarious — and only time will tell which it is. So this just happened as Kawhi Leonard was boarding the Spurs charter for Saturday’s game against the Chicago Bulls.

Tim Duncan’s daughter steals the show

Tim Duncan’s daughter steals the show

Here are today’s best Spurs news and articles. Despite missing Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker, the Spurs did what they were supposed to do on opening night by beating the up-and-coming but still-figuring-it-out Minnesota Timberwolves 107-99. However, the Spurs doing Spurs things on national TV wasn’t what caught everyone’s attention, but rather it was Quill Duncan, the daughter of Tim Duncan and Vanessa Macias, who was caught by the cameras being too cute to handle by teething on her daddy’s shirt: Monty Williams with Tim Duncan & Vanessa, baby is using Tim's shirt for a...

No Kawhi, No Problem for Spurs in season’s first game

No Kawhi, No Problem for Spurs in season’s first game

A closer look at what the numbers reveal about the Spurs’ win in their opener. It’s hard to talk about the Spurs’ season-opening 107-99 win over Minnesota without first mentioning the absence of Kawhi Leonard. Leonard, who Vegas picked as the second-best bet to win MVP this season behind LeBron James, is out indefinitely with tendinopathy of his right quadriceps. Though “indefinitely” would ordinarily be a scary word in this context, nearly all injury-related news that comes from the tight-lipped Spurs can be described as “not definite.” And, there is reason to believe that...

Spurs start strong, finish stronger in season-opening win over Wolves

Spurs start strong, finish stronger in season-opening win over Wolves

With Kawhi Leonard in street clothes, LaMarcus Aldridge showed the Spurs had all the starpower they needed to beat an upgraded Minnesota squad. Much has been made of the Spurs’ nondescript offseason, settling for seemingly marginal moves as superteams formed elsewhere. One of those new powers was meant to be the Timberwolves, who added top-flight wing Jimmy Butler to a core of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins and have their sights set on a long-awaited return to the playoffs. But with all the hoopla surrounding the Butler acquisition, with Wiggins inking a near-$150 million...

Minnesota at San Antonio, Final Score; Spurs overpower the Timberwolves on opening day

The Spurs, without Kawhi Leonard, won their opening day contest against the Timberwolves. The Minnesota Timberwolves augmented their young and talented core by adding Jimmy Butler and coach Tom Thibideau this year, and they’re a wild card in the deep western conference this season. But the ageless Spurs handled the new look Wolves easily for the most part, despite a sag in the fourth quarter that allowed the Wolves to briefly even the score. Game Flow The Spurs started quickly with Dejounte Murray scoring the first points and Pau Gasol looking sharp and hitting his shots. Lamarcus...

Spurs beat the Rockets to cap off the preseason

The Spurs finished the preseason 3-2 and looking ready to go.
