Kawhi Leonard will meet with Gregg Popovich to discuss when he will return to the Spurs' lineup.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports that Leonard will remain out through Thursday's game as he continues to work toward a possible comeback from his quadriceps injury.

Leonard recently said he hopes to get back soon, but he didn't identify an exact date for his return.

Leonard stepped away from playing to focus on rehabbing the injured quad after a nine-game return to the Spurs that ended on January 13. They haven't missed the playoffs since the 1996-97 season.

"Like anybody else, he's frustrated", Popovich said before Tuesday's game against the Orlando Magic.

Asked about his targets, Wallace said: "I had a few targets set at the start of the year, but I've tweaked it. It's satisfying to master the course". "There are some great champions".

Leonard's return cannot come soon enough for San Antonio, who have slipped in the Western Conference standings and are in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time since the 1996-97 season.

"Until he gets cleared, we can't make a decision on when he's coming back", Popovich continued.

Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs stands for a moment of silence for the National Anthem before the game against the Houston Rockets during Game Four of the Western Conference Semifinals of the 2017 Playoffs on May 7, 2017 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The Spurs already had listed Leonard as out for Tuesday night's game. The Spurs gave the Rockets their 52nd win of the season.

Leonard, 26, has averaged 16.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game for his career.

They are now 37-30 and in a three-way tie for eighth place in the Western Conference. His importance to the team is beyond words, as he excels on both ends of the floor, and giving them another weapon they can use to keep the defense busy, and opening up the lanes for his teammates to attack the basket.
