The San Antonio Spurs revealed its official injury report before Monday’s game vs. the Los Angeles Clippers.

On Monday night, the San Antonio Spurs will remain at home for its latest game. It will be against the Los Angeles Clippers, who the Spurs previously defeated in the 2017-18 season. LA won’t have Blake Griffin, due to injury, for this game.

The Spurs were banged up for most of the first 30 games but started to get healthy in late November and early December. This was after Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard returned from their respective quad injuries, which were suffered before this campaign started.

Against the Clippers, the Silver and Black will have most of their team, according to the official injury report. Leonard, who missed Saturday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks to rest, will be active. Danny Green, who also sat out with a groin injury, remains questionable for Monday. Finally, as with the past handful of games, Kyle Anderson won’t play. He’s still recovering from a sprained left MCL.

Parker wasn’t listed on the injury report, so look for him to suit up.

In Leonard’s first two games back, he was placed on a minutes restriction, something that may continue vs. Los Angeles. He played a combined 33 minutes against the Mavericks and Houston Rockets, both of which resulted in a loss.

Green will seemingly be the only question mark before the game. He’s dealt with this groin injury for the past week, so if it’s still bothering him into the early part of Dec. 18, it could create a game-time situation.

Without a back-to-back until Wednesday and Thursday, look for a similar group to play on the former, as head coach Gregg Popovich strategically rests his older and injured players.
