Kawhi Leonard left in the third quarter of San Antonio's loss in Oklahoma City after taking a shot to the head and did not return.
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich described the incident after Thursday's game as a "hit on the mouth or cheek," leaving the All-Star forward's status unclear for Saturday's game against the Warriors.
