The San Antonio Spurs lost yet another key member from their already thinned ranks.

Third-year swingman Kawhi Leonard, whose versatility shines at both ends of the floor, exited Wednesday's 111-105 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder with a fractured finger on his right hand:


Incredibly, he's the third San Antonio starter to go down with an injury just this month. Tiago Splitter (sprained right shoulder) and Danny Green (broken finger) have both already been biding their time in the training room:


So far, the Spurs have managed to keep quiet on the transaction front, preferring to expand Gregg Popovich's rotation instead of drumming up any trade and/or free-agent talks. That's one of the many luxuries of consistently being the smartest person in the room on draft night.

But San Antonio's hands might be tied this time around. Leonard brings something so unique to this team he now leaves a void that can't be replaced by simply looking further down the bench.
