Kawhi Leonard: ‘I’m feeling pretty healthy right now’

San Antonio Spurs star forward Kawhi Leonard addressed local media on Monday for the first time since the club’s media day on Sept. 25, but he declined to disclose any information on when he might return from right quadriceps tendinopathy.

“I feel good,” Leonard said. “Soon [the time is] to come to be able to play on the floor. I’m feeling pretty healthy right now. I think they told you guys that I’ve been playing five-on-five. So that’s where I’m at right now. It’s been good. Just still, just gotta go through a few more processes of doing that. I should be back soon.”

Having missed all 23 of San Antonio’s games this season, Leonard stepped out of the locker room Monday before the team’s matchup with the Detroit Pistons at the AT&T Center wearing a pair of metallic gold Air Jordan Retro 5s with a matching black and gold sweatshirt.

Internally, the club discussed bringing Leonard back as soon as Monday, and it’s anticipated that the forward might make an appearance during San Antonio’s three-game home stand, which began Monday against the Pistons, with matchups with Miami and Boston set for Wednesday and Friday.

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul will miss Saturday’s Game 6 of the Western Conference finals at Golden State with a right hamstring strain, the team announced Friday.

Paul will travel with the Rockets to Oakland, California, for the game, coach Mike D’Antoni said, and will be re-evaluated after the team returns to Houston.

“It’s obviously not something we wanted,” D’Antoni said before Friday’s practice. “I hate it for him above all. He’s practically won us the past two games. But it’s a great opportunity for other guys, and we have plenty to choose from. We’ll be ready.”

Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said there’s an “overwhelming likelihood” that the team will keep its No. 1 overall pick and not trade it away.

McDonough made the comment Friday after the first of what will be many pre-draft workouts of players on the Suns’ practice court.

The leading candidates for that No. 1 pick in June’s NBA draft almost certainly will be worked out privately, with the exception of Luka Doncic, the European sensation who still is playing in Spain.
