Miami Heat big man Meyers Leonard is ready for the 2019-20 NBA season to resume.
The novel coronavirus has kept NBA players away from legitimate games since March.
However, Leonard has been out of commission for much longer than that. The 28-year-old missed 16 straight games due to a sprained left ankle prior to the suspension.
The veteran has started in 49 contests with the Heat this season. He is averaging 6.1 points and 5.1 boards per game.
While his statistical production hasn’t been superb, his all-around presence has boosted the team. As a matter of fact, the Heat are interested in re-signing Leonard despite him missing several games this season.
The 2019-20 campaign is set to move forward on July 30 in Orlando, Fla.
