Kawhi Leonard denies treatment causing friction with Spurs

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

"I don't have a set date right now".

The Spurs are now in fifth place in the West, but only a half-game behind the No. 3 Portland Trail Blazers.

First, he said his pain level with his quadriceps tendon issue is "diminishing" he plans to return "soon" but left it open. They understand the situation that I'm in.

According to Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News, Leonard was asked whether he would like to finish his career as a Spur to which he responded, "Yeah, for sure".

Houston (50-13) and Golden State (50-14) are way ahead of the pack in the West, but the next eight teams are separated by only 4.5 games. Leonard was medically cleared by the team, but opted not to play and even sought out additional consultation at a NY facility.

"It's hard to explain, but obviously I'm a competitor", Leonard said.

Leonard, who has intermittently played in just nine games this season, has remained inactive since being cleared to play in February. "It just wasn't where we wanted it to be".

"Everything was done as a group", Leonard said. We don't want to take any steps back and just aggravate things. "It's hard to explain, but I am definitely better. I feel better, and I'm feeling more comfortable", Leonard told reporters on Wednesday (Thursday AEDT), via ESPN. I talked with Pop every day.

He also tried to quash the idea that there is a lot of tension in his relations with the Spurs, saying he wants to stay a Spur for his entire career. He knows what the progressions were, he knew what I was doing the whole entire time as well as the front office. We made a group decision.

Both the player and San Antonio will visit that when the time comes, but for now, the aim is to get him back to full health and on the floor to help the team compete for a championship. San Antonio plays 15 of its last 18 games against opponents with winning records.
