Kawhi Leonard says he hopes to return to action soon but acknowledged that there’s no set return date just yet.
It was a pretty wide-ranging media session with Leonard, who has been sequestered away from the press for much of the process. He also added that he wants to remain a Spur for the rest of his career and that there’s no friction between him and the organization, saying that his entire recovery process has been done in conjunction with the team. Leonard also said he’s feeling more comfortable as his leg improves and that he’s intent on playing again this season. While it’s a sizable risk to spend a non-IR spot on Leonard with no firm return date, he almost has to be stashed in all formats.
