However, Leonard has apparently recovered enough to have passed his physical in Toronto, while Danny Green, who went with Leonard in the trade, is providing some support for his teammate's skepticism toward San Antonio's medical staff.

"I get an MRI the next day", Green said of the injury suffered December 8 against Boston. "[It says] slight strain, take a couple weeks off". "I think the whole time he's been here I've talked to him maybe a handful of times", Robinson said.

This summer had been dominated by Leonard's revelation that he wanted to leave the San Antonio Spurs after a breakdown in relationship with the franchise. They've always been great to me. "But we never went back to check on it again because so many other injuries had happened", Green said. But Leonard never returned, electing to stay in NY to rehab his mysterious quadriceps injury instead of helping his team on the court or supporting them on the bench.

It'll be interesting to see if Green can get the answers he wants before they embark on a new journey together in Toronto.

Danny Green, who was also sent to the Raptors with Leonard as part of the deal, believes fans in Texas should be grateful for what he did for the team and shouldn't hate him.

According to Nick DePaula of ESPN, that deal won't be happening after he reported the Nike subsidiary will "let Leonard walk" when the two-time Defensive Player of the Year's contract expires in October.

Spurs doctors had cleared Leonard to return to play, but he sought second opinions and did not return, making his health a question mark following the trade.

As recalled by the San Antonio Express-News on Sunday, Leonard originally seemed like the flawless player for a smaller-market team like the Spurs.

"I don't know how you can hate him".

"No, Toronto isn't LA which is where you think you want to be, but if you're serious about winning titles and building on the legacy you've already begun as an National Basketball Association player, Toronto isn't a bad place to do it".
