NBA Wildcat Watch (January 3)

All the hoopla was around Kawhi Leonard's return to San Antonio, as we unfortunately didn't get to see Lowry vs. Cunningham.

From Tuesday through Friday, each time a former Wildcat hits the court, we will recap how they did and include a few highlights (if available). On Tuesdays, we’ll also recap what happened over the weekend, so you don’t miss the action. This will also serve as a discussion board. We will try to keep it updated as soon as the games are over, so check back often!

Just one NBA game features a couple of Villanova Wildcats. Two former teammates, Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors) and Dante Cunningham (San Antonio Spurs), will meet down in Alamo Town to tip-off a three-game NBA slate on Thursday.

NBA Wildcat Watches from earlier this Week: Tuesday (Jan. 1) | Wednesday (Jan. 2)


Kyle Lowry

Lowry, who was listed as questionable entering Thursday night, ended up not playing in the Raptors' 125-107 loss to the Spurs. The all-star point guard is expected to be back in action as early as the next few days, as he nurses a sore back.

Up Next: @ Milwaukee on Saturday, Jan. 5, at 8:30 p.m. ET (NBA TV)

Dante Cunningham

Cunningham got in for a five minutes in the Spurs' victory. He grabbed two rebounds.

Up Next: vs. Memphis on Saturday, Jan. 5, at 8:30 p.m. ET
