Clippers president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank revealed Thursday that Leonard has gained clearance to participate in 5-on-5 action, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Leonard missed all of 2021 due to surgery he underwent to repair a torn ACL last July. There are no specifics if the star forward will be available for the preseason or even to start the regular season. However, this is a good sign that Leonard will be able to play sooner rather than later.
