Injury Reports LA Clippers - Nuggets

The Los Angeles Clippers beat the Dallas Mavericks 113-101 at home on Tuesday. This gave them a record of 22-21 SU and 21-22 ATS. The Clippers ended their losing streak of six games.

Kawhi Leonard had 33 points (9-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 12-12 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, four steals, and one block in 36 minutes of play. He has now played more than 35 minutes in two straight games and done well in both of them. This is great news for fantasy managers who might have been worried about Leonard’s chances when he only played in five of the Clippers’ first 24 games.

The five-time All-Star will continue to miss some games because of injuries, but as long as Paul George (hamstring) is out of the lineup, it looks like Kawhi Leonard will continue to get more touches while playing the same number of minutes.

Paul George won’t play against the Nuggets on Friday because he hurt his hamstring.

George will probably miss his fourth game in a row because of his hamstring injury, which means this streak will keep going. Luke Kennard is also out with a calf injury, so Nicolas Batum and Terance Mann are likely to get more playing time against Denver. George’s next chance to get back on the court could be Sunday’s game against the Rockets.

Nikola Jokic might not be able to play against the Clippers on Friday because of how he is taking care of an injury to his right wrist.

Jokic hasn’t missed a game for the Nuggets since November 20. However, the team may decide to give him a break after he averaged 21.0 points, 14.7 rebounds, 11.7 assists, and 32.7 minutes per game in his last three games.
