After spending 10 days before the All-Star break in New York consulting with a specialist to gather a second opinion on his right quad injury, All-NBA forward Kawhi Leonard bears the burden of determining when he’s prepared to play again, sources told ESPN.

Leonard has been medically cleared to return from the right quad tendinopathy injury, but since shutting down a nine-game return to the San Antonio Spurs that ended Jan. 13, he has elected against returning to the active roster, sources said. If Leonard returns, it will be because he has decided he can manage the pain of the injury, according to the sources.

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.
