Nevertheless, Popovich added that he hoped Leonard could return before the end of the Spurs' three-game road trip, which began Sunday in Portland. "If I could move, I'm sure you guys know I would have been a lot more aggressive and I would have been a lot more hands-on with the end of that game but I did what I could".
