Spurs’ Leonard Returns from Concussion, Aldridge Remains Out


Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard made his return Monday, as the team hosted the Atlanta Hawks at the AT&T Center, after spending four days going through the NBA’s concussion protocol. Leonard scored 31 points in the Spurs’ 107-99 win.

“I felt good,” he said. “Just like any other game. Our medicine team and trainers did a good job of getting me prepared.” The outlook for power forward LaMarcus Aldridge, however, remains uncertain after he underwent a battery of medical tests Monday, after experiencing an episode of minor heart arrhythmia over the weekend. “We’re just gonna wait until he comes back and assess everything,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said before Monday night’s game. “I think he’ll be back either tomorrow morning or tonight — I don’t know which.”
