Kawhi Leonard wants to play this season, denies talk of friction with San Antonio Spurs

The two-time Defensive Player of the Year played in nine games after missing the season's first 27 games, but returned to the sideline after playing against Denver on January 13. The Spurs may opt to play it safe and hold him out until the playoffs next month.

The Spurs are in danger of falling off the cliff, sliding to the sixth position in the West, after the Portland Trail Blazers and the New Orleans Pelicans have streaked at the right time, winning eight and nine consecutive games to take third and fourth place in the conference, respectively. "The progression that I am making has been great".

Leonard, a free agent in 2019, is eligible to sign a supermax extension with the Spurs this summer. The reports of tension between him and management while he sought second opinions were not true, Leonard said. I don't feel like (there) was friction. I talked with Pop every day. In November, head coach Gregg Popovich told reporters that he had never seen an injury like Leonard's. "If I could play, I'm going to go out and play like I did in the nine games, just to test it out".
