Maxi Kleber announced that he would not be missing the rest of this season and was instead hopeful of returning by the All-Star break in an interview on Wednesday.

“I’m not out for the season, I can’t give an exact date but I hope I’m gonna be back within the next week, preferably before All-Star break.

"I don’t want to jinx anything, or say anything, or make promises but that’s the plan. There’s so many factors that come into that, but that’s the goal," said Kleber.

Kleber was initially ruled out indefinitely following surgery on a torn hamstring

Kleber is averaging 6.2 points in 22 games on the season.
