Kawhi Leonard plans to resume working with the team at the Spurs' practice facility this week. There are hopes of Leonard returning to the lineup in March.

Leonard has returned to San Antonio from New York after spending three weeks seeking further consultation on his right quad injury.

Leonard isn't expected to immediately start engaging in full five-on-five practices with his teammates.

Leonard's return is based on his comfort level managing the injury.

Gregg Popovich told reporters last week that he'd be "surprised" if Leonard returns this season.
