"He feels great, wants to participate in everything. ... As an organization, we want to be cautious," Frank said, according to The Orange County Register's Mirjam Swanson.
Frank didn't provide a timetable for Leonard's return to play. The five-time All-Star missed the entirety of the 2021-2022 season with an ACL injury.
Meanwhile, co-star Paul George's elbow injury is fully healed, Frank confirmed, according to NBA.com's Mark Medina. George only played 31 games in 2021-22.
The Clippers finished with a 42-40 record last season. They didn't advance beyond the play-in tournament, losing to the Minnesota Timberwolves and New Orleans Pelicans.
