Sources: Kawhi Leonard expected to return in two weeks for Spurs

San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard will likely return within two weeks from a hand injury, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Leonard has been recovering from a torn ligament in his shooting hand and is expected to resume light basketball activities this week, sources said.

Doctors have seen progress in the lessening of his inflammation, and the belief is he'll regain full strength in the hand with no long-term limitations or issues, sources said.

Leonard was the 2014 NBA Finals MVP for the defending champion Spurs and is one of the NBA's elite defenders. He hasn't played since Dec. 15 against Portland, missing 10 consecutive games.

He's averaged 15.2 points, 7.6 rebounds and two steals per game for the Spurs.
