Not the best news, but also far from the worst.
The Spurs injury report for tomorrow’s nationally televised clash with the Oklahoma City Thunder has been released. LaMarcus Aldridge (left knee contusion) is listed as “questionable”, and Kawhi Leonard (return from injury management) is still out.

The good news is Aldridge’s injury isn’t too serious if it’s possible that he can play tomorrow. The bad news is if he can’t go, the Spurs can scarcely afford for him to miss any time. One game wouldn’t be the end of the world for their playoff hunt (although a loss to the Thunder would give OKC the tie-breaker and likely lower the Spurs’ reasonable ceiling to the fifth seed), but any more than that could spell trouble.
Get well soon, LMA! The Spurs need you.
