Kawhi Leonard is dealing with a unique hand injury that San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich called “very problematic.”

Leonard said he expects to be back soon, but Popovich has serious doubts about that.

“I don’t think that’s accurate,” Popovich said. “He got another injection yesterday. One of the doctors said he’s been doing hands for 40 years, and it’s the first time he’s ever seen this injury. It’s a little bit unique.”

Leonard is averaging 15.2 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists this season for San Antonio (18-11).

He will likely miss his fifth consecutive game Christmas Day when the Spurs play the Oklahoma City Thunder.
