Lowry to miss reunion with former Raptors team-mate DeRozan

Kawhi Leonard who is averaging 27.3 points this season was a two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year and also won NBA Finals MVP in 2014 during his seven seasons with the team

Green has not only proved to be far more valuable to the Raptors than simply the "other guy" in last summer's trade, he's also become the go-guy guy on all comments related to Leonard.

"You're always concerned", Nurse said Sunday, via ESPN.

Every time he touched the rock, went to the basket, or did basically anything during warmups, the crowd jeered their former All-Star like he stole all their mothers' lunch money.

DeMar was asked about a scenario in which it comes down to one possession going one-on-one against Leonard, with a chance to hit a game victor. You're gonna say whatever you want. "It's a waste of our time". After a wild post-season in which the Spurs savagely traded Leonard to Toronto after a dramatic season (remember he wanted to be in LA), and the Raptors gave up their loyal DeMar DeRozan, emotions were running high.

Discussing Kawhi Leonard is not one of Gregg Popovich's favourite things to do. "We'll see tonight, I don't know".

Leonard finished with 21 points and five assists in Toronto's 125-107 loss to his former squad. "Who raised you? God got us!" "We shared a lot of success together with Kawhi, and he was a very, very important part of that". They have the second-best record in the league, a solid point differential and are in the top-10 in both offensive and defensive ratings. "To be able to welcome them back is going to be good, and obviously catch up with them". I guess in the bigger picture, it really is just another game. He's been a great friend to me, and he deserves that. It wasn't long ago that Leonard looked to be the face of San Antonio's future - the player who would take the baton from Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili and continue the Spurs dynasty.

"Media does a great job to stir people's minds and influence them to think a certain way", Leonard said, via TSN. "I hope for one [reaction], predict and guess another. That's what I expect".

The mood will be much different when DeMar DeRozan returns to Toronto on February 22, of course.

Kawhi Leonard will be excellent in his return to San Antonio, but I'm not so sure about Kyle Lowry, who has missed a lot of time recently and will probably push himself to play tonight even if he's not 100 percent.
