San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard has only played nine games this season and has been ruled out of action for the team's regular-season finale versus the Pelicans.

The Spurs once again ruled him out of action due to his return from injury management and it leaves many wondering why San Antonio simply doesn't announce he is done for the entire season including the playoffs.

Maybe it's because he is still attempting to rejoin the team.

In case you didn't know, Leonard's sister runs his official Instagram fan page and recently posted comments regarding the playing status of her brother while promoting Kawhi's newest sneakers.

Needless to say, her words leave the door wide open at a possible return to the floor for Kawhi.

"What makes u think he's not working on getting back to his team? Make sure u speak Facts! Kawhi is still a Spur"

The Spurs will be heading to the playoffs and as mentioned, have not ruled him out for the entire season. This may be because they are looking to add him to the playoff roster.

Should he make his way back to the squad and suit up in the postseason, the Spurs would get a huge boost to their playoff run and make them a formidable playoff opponent.

There has been no announcement from the Spurs regarding the playoff playing status for Leonard but with many trying to figure out what is going on with him and his status with the team, any nugget of information helps.
