The Spurs will be without 21-year old starting small forward Kawhi Leonard for the next 10-14 days due to tendinitis in both his right knee and right quad. Leonard has played in 9 games (all starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 28.9 minutes, 10.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 2.0 steals per game. Look for 34-year old Stephen Jackson to replace Leonard in the starting lineup. Jackson has played in 8 games (0 starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 24.3 minutes, 8.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steal per game. Jackson will likely do a solid job while Leonard gets back to health.
