Parker, who will play Monday night against the Dallas Mavericks, worked out with Leonard while rehabilitating a torn quadriceps tendon. Parker said Leonard, a two-time All-Star, is close to returning to normal as he recovers from quadriceps tendinopathy.
Parker estimated Leonard would return to action “in a couple weeks, three weeks.”
“He looked great,” Parker said. “I was like, ‘Oh, he’s good. I forgot that he was that good.’ Yeah, [he’s] close. It’s still going to be a process. Still, the Spurs aren’t going to take [any] risks. It’s still going to be, like I said, a couple of weeks, three weeks. They’re not going to take any risks. But he’s looking good so far. What he did with me, he’s looking good.”
