Before the San Antonio Spurs face the New Orleans Pelicans, let’s look at the latest news, notes and headlines for Wednesday, Nov. 22.

On Wednesday night, the San Antonio Spurs will face the New Orleans Pelicans. It’s the first part of a road trip that goes into Thanksgiving weekend, along with the Spurs having no game on Thursday or Friday.

Before this game, the latest headlines developed for the Silver and Black. What did this include? Was there an update on Kawhi Leonard’s status? Let’s take a look for Nov. 22:

  • Following the Spurs’ win over the Atlanta Hawks, we looked at the hangover reactions. This included Rudy Gay’s loss of minutes and Manu Ginobili’s turn-back-the-clock performance.
  • Before Monday’s game, Hawks guard Marco Belinelli spoke candidly about Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich. He called Popovich a “dad” and “an amazing person.”
  • Pounding the Rock looked at the continued rise (and rise) of Danny Green, along with other notes from the win over the Hawks.
  • Spurs legend Tim Duncan was inducted into the College Basketball Hall of Fame. He played four years at Wake Forest, and joined Cleo Hill, Scott May, Rick Mount, Bo Ryan, Paul Silas, John Stockton and Jay Williams in this class.

Congrats to the great Tim Duncan on being inducted into the College Basketball Hall of Fame last night

  • Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News spoke to Sabrina Strickland, an expert with the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, about Kawhi Leonard’s quad injury. She said, “he’s going to be fine if they are truly saying what is wrong with him.”
  • Via News4SanAntonio.com, after Monday’s game, Popovich praised Bryn Forbes’ recent play. Of the second-year pro, he said, “He’s just getting better all the time. He’s getting more comfortable and starting to feel like he belongs and that’s really important with a young player.”
