Spurs Rumors: Kawhi Leonard's return from hand injury a "couple games" away?

The San Antonio Spurs won't have to wait much longer for the return of young star Kawhi Leonard, if this next report by Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski is any indication:

The 23-year-old small forward is missing his second-straight game and fourth contest in his last six as he recuperates from the ligament tear. Per RJ White of CBS Sports, "he added before Friday's game that he'll have to wait for the swelling to subside before he can consider returning to action."

Leonard chipped in a team-high 21 points and also picked up nine rebounds in San Antonio's 108-95 loss to Portland on Monday night, but suffered the reported hand injury late in the contest. X-rays came back negative in regards to structural damage in the hand itself.
