League sources tell the Express-News Leonard could make his season debut for the Spurs on Saturday against the Phoenix Suns barring any setbacks. The All-Star went through a workout on Thursday and will be re-evaluated Friday.

The Spurs have impressed to this point without Leonard as he worked his way back from injury, and bringing an MVP candidate into the rotation will certainly bolster the Spurs' position as one of the West's top teams. Once officially back, Leonard's return will knock Rudy Gay back to the bench, which means a much smaller role for the veteran forward. Instead, it will be a needed part of his recovery and return to action. If Leonard does ultimately get the green light to play, he'd likely see some fairly hefty restrictions early on considering the Spurs are likely going to ease their superstar back into the swing of things.
