(Sporting Alert) — Kawhi Leonard returns to the starting line-up for the San Antonio Spurs Monday for the NBA clash with the Philadelphia 76ers Wells Fargo Center.
Leonard started on the bench on Sunday in the 120-89 blowout win over the New York Knicks. Also starting is guard Danny Green, but forward Tim Duncan has been ruled out for tonight’s clash.
Head coach Gregg Popovich revealed that Duncan is being rested, so Boris Diaw starts in his place.
Matt Bonner also remains out with Grade 1 calf strain.
