  • Kawhi Leonard Says He Wants To Retire A Spur

Leonard, who has intermittently played in just nine games this season, has remained inactive since being cleared to play in February. The Spurs may opt to play it safe and hold him out until the playoffs next month. They now sit in the fifth seed of the Western Conference, just two games ahead of the eighth seed Denver Nuggets. He returned to the sideline after the quadriceps injury flared up on January 13. "The progression that I am making has been great".

Until Kawhi Leonard is healthy and has signed an extension with the team, his future with the Spurs remains uncertain.

"Everything was done as a group", Leonard said of him seeking second opinions. I don't feel like nothing was friction. I talked to Pop every day.

Part of the reason for all the rumors and speculation around Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs - when he would play again, about tension between him and management - was the lack of real information. The San Antonio Spurs star didn't make his season debut until December 12 and was shut down once again after appearing in just nine games.

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. "He knows what the progressions were, he knew what I am doing the whole entire time".




"I don't have a set date right now [for my return],"Leonard said, per ESPN's Michael C. Wright".

But the 26-year-old Leonard says his return is imminent.

"It's been tough but these guys (have) been doing it all season", Leonard said. I'm thankful for them, for the teammates that I have.

When asked whether he wanted to finish his career with the Spurs, Leonard said: "Yes, for sure". San Antonio plays 15 of its last 18 games against opponents with winning records. It's hard to explain, but I'm definitely better. "Feel better and am feeling more comfortable".
