Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Kawhi Leonard is continuing his injury rehabilitation in New York with his own team of doctors, but Popovich is unsure when the star forward and “his group” will clear him to play.

“I don’t know when he’s going to feel, he and his group are going to feel like they’re ready to go,” Popovich said Sunday before a game against Houston. “If I knew, he’d be here. When he and his group feel he’s ready, he’ll be ready.”

Leonard has missed all but nine games this season while nursing right quadriceps tendinopathy, an injury that flared up late in the offseason. He returned to the team’s lineup briefly but has not played since complaining of soreness in his injured thigh after the Spurs’ home win over Denver on Jan. 13.

The Spurs are competing for home-court advantage in the opening round of the playoffs despite a rash of injuries, to Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Rudy Gay, Danny Green and Kyle Anderson as well as Leonard.
