Leonard has played just nine games this season and none since Jan. 13 due to a right quadriceps injury. He spoke with reporters Wednesday and downplayed reports of a rift with the Spurs regarding the way his rehabilitation has been handled.
"Everything was done as a group," Leonard told the San Antonio Express-News. "I don't feel like nothing was friction. I talk to Pop (Spurs coach Gregg Popovich) every day. ... He knew what I was doing the whole entire time, as well as the front office. We made a group decision, so it was me just going out and saying, 'I am going to go out and do this thing.' "
Asked if he would like to finish his career in San Antonio, Leonard said, "Yeah. For sure."
Asked when he thinks he's going to play again, Leonard responded, "Soon. I don't have a set date right now. I've just got to keep doing what I'm doing. The progression that I'm making has been great."
Leonard is averaging 16.3 points and 6.2 rebounds a game in his seven-year pro career.
