Kawhi Leonard will start playing in back-to-backs in January

The Toronto Raptors have been exceptionally careful with Kawhi Leonard‘s return from his nagging quad injury. Leonard’s leg was at least part of the reason he sat out for most of the year in San Antonio in 2017-18, and there’s been no rush in Toronto to agitate his quad further. Leonard has played in just 26 of Toronto’s 35 games this season, and has not played on back-to-back nights yet.
