Leonard (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn ACL, Farbod Esnaashari of Sports Illustrated reports.

The Clippers remain cautiously optimistic about the odds of Leonard returning during the regular season.

Ultimately, fantasy managers can avoid Leonard in almost every league, though if it's a deep league with two IR spots, there's some justification for taking the risk.
