The San Antonio Spurs unveiled its official injury report for Tuesday, Dec. 26, vs. the Brooklyn Nets. Who was featured on it?
On Tuesday, the San Antonio Spurs will return to the court to face the Brooklyn Nets. It’s a home game, as the Silver and Black completed a three-game stand on the road, with trips to the Portland Trail Blazers, Utah Jazz and Sacramento Kings. This homestand will be two games, with the New York Knicks headed to the AT&T Center on Thursday, Dec. 28.
The 2017-18 season featured a wealth of injuries for the Spurs. From Tony Parker to Kyle Anderson to Kawhi Leonard to Joffrey Lauvergne, there always seems to be a player or two that’s “out.” Leonard fit this bill for October, November and half of December, before returning on the 12th.
As for the Nets game, San Antonio unveiled its official injury report. Who was part of it?
Leonard (return from injury management) and Danny Green (groin) were the only players listed, and as “probable.” Both missed Saturday’s game vs. the Kings, with their previously-noted ailments.

For the Klaw, this gave him an extra day of rest, along with Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, before a potential return vs. Brooklyn. The coaching staff remains cautious, as he recovers from a right quad injury that kept him out for most of the 2017-18 season.
As for Green, he missed a handful of games in December, including the previous two. Let’s see if the extra day of rest allowed him to heal and be ready to start, as Bryn Forbes took his spot on Thursday and Saturday.
Will the injury report change before tip-off at 8:30 p.m. ET? If not, how do you think Leonard and Green will perform in their respective returns to the court?
