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.
