 Leonard talks about wheel break: its important to play too early for 4-6 months.


Back-to-back rest is designed to ease Leonards burden. He played only nine games last year because of injuries, and according to his personal statement, the team will insist on his rotation.

It feels great because I missed almost a whole year last year, so Im not going to start too early this year, said Leonard, who has chosen to step up his efforts in Thursdays training session. Its just to prevent injuries, so I wont play back-to-back games now.

Leonards injuries showed no signs of recurrence. He seemed to have recovered his strength in a double game. In six games, he could get 27.3 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 2 steals, 50% shooting and 44% three-point shooting, respectively. This was still in the case of only playing 35 minutes.

However, his goal is obviously not just in October or November, but an appetizer. Over the past few years, the Raptors have always been strong in the regular season. Last year they even set a team record, but their performance in the playoffs has always been unsatisfactory. The team needs Leonard to work hard in 4-6 months, and so does he himself.

You want to play every game, but Ive been in the League long enough to know whats more important, the April-June game. So this is also our goal: to be the best team at the end of the season. Thanks to the early opening of the NBA, the Raptors have only 12 back-to-back games this season. They are about to start a four-game series, first challenging the Lakers on Monday and then going to Salt Lake City to face the Jazz. Leonard will only play one game, and the California-grown boy will certainly choose to play in front of his hometown parents. Thats for sure, Leonard said when asked if he would play against the Lakers. Well look at the situation and see what theyre going to do, but Im sure Ill play in Los Angeles.
