Before the San Antonio Spurs kick off a six-game road trip, let’s look at the official injury report for Wednesday night’s game vs. the Phoenix Suns.

On Wednesday night, the San Antonio Spurs will start their annual Rodeo Road Trip. This takes them away from the AT&T Center for six games, including one against the Golden State Warriors, the Cleveland Cavaliers and two against the Denver Nuggets (sandwiching their 10-day gap between the start and end of the All-Star Break).

The Rodeo Road Trip starts in Phoenix, AZ, with a game against the Phoenix Suns at the Talking Stick Resort. It’s the fourth time these teams will face off in the 2017-18 season.

Before tip-off, the Silver and Black announced their official injury report. It featured the same two names of the previous month: Kawhi Leonard (return from injury management) and Rudy Gay (right heel bursitis). Leonard has not played since early January and Gay since late December.

With the All-Star Break approaching, it would not be a surprise if both players return after it concludes on Feb. 23. Gay at least has a timetable, according to the San Antonio Express-News. The same can’t be said for Leonard, who remains out indefinitely.

Without these players, Davis Bertans and Kyle Anderson will continue to benefit and receive extra playing time. This has been the case for most of the season for the latter and the past six weeks for the former.
