Leonard has been nursing a right quad injury that has sidelined him all season. The progress I've been making has been great.
The Spurs have struggled without their star forward.
Despite being cleared to return by the Spurs doctors, Leonard sought second opinion on his right quad injury from specialists in NY. "They're playing well. I've just got to get better, I can't come back unhealthy". I'm thankful for the teammates that I do have. Like I said: It's hard to explain.
While the 26-year-old remained noncommittal to a return date, he said he should return "soon", but according to ESPN's Michael C. Wright, Leonard is "close" to coming back, doing some "insane" workouts to get back into action. "I just have to keep doing what I am doing". "Just a type of protocol, step-by-step, that we were doing".
While Leonard said the pain caused by the tendinopathy in his right quadriceps is diminishing, he quickly added that "it's hard to explain" the level of his discomfort. The reports of tension between him and management while he sought second opinions were not true, Leonard said. "I feel better, and I'm feeling more comfortable", Leonard told reporters on Wednesday (Thursday AEDT), via ESPN. I talked to (Spurs coach Gregg Popovich) every day. He knows what the progressions were.

Leonard replied quickly when he was asked if he would like to end his career as a Spur.
