The term load management has been mocked around the NBA this season, but Toronto Raptors All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard is not laughing.

Leonard praised how the Raptors have managed his health in his first season up north, per Josh Lewenberg of TSN Sports.

“We’ve been doing a great job of making sure that nothing flares up or gets out of control. It’s just been great. I’m just happy that I’m able to play. … It’s amazing. I feel good and we have something to look forward to.”

Leonard has played in just 49 games for Toronto this season but has made the most of his playing time, leading the team with 27 points per game.
