What is Kawhi Leonard’s injury?


Status: Active

UPDATE (Mar. 25):

On Thursday, the Los Angeles Clippers won 127-15 over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Kahwi Leonard scored 32 points, grabbed six boards, and dished out six assists on the night. He made 13 of 15 attempts.

Without Paul George (knee), Leonard was asked to take on a larger offensive role than usual, and the veteran forward delivered with one of his best performances ever.

UPDATE (Mar. 23):

During his 38 minutes on the court, Kawhi Leonard led the team with 21 points (7-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 6 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals.

Leonard hasn’t had any time restrictions in weeks, and in his last six games he’s averaged 35 minutes per game (with the exception of resting for one leg of back-to-back sets).

Kawhi Leonard’s minutes and offensive responsibilities are expected to keep growing as a result of Paul George’s (knee) injury, which forced him to leave Tuesday’s game on a stretcher.

UPDATE (Mar. 21):

Kawhi Leonard is ready for Tuesday’s game against the Thunder.

UPDATE (Mar. 19):

In Sunday’s game against the Blazers, Kawhi Leonard’s status is up in the air.

UPDATE (Mar. 18):

Kawhi Leonard will sit out Saturday’s game against the Magic as he continues to recover from a right knee injury.

The match on Saturday is the first of two consecutive days of play. Leonard is expected to play Sunday against the Trail Blazers.

UPDATE (Mar. 15):

Kawhi Leonard is ready to play against the Warriors on Wednesday.

UPDATE (Mar. 11):

Kawhi Leonard has been on fire as of late despite missing 28 games this year due to ongoing knee soreness.

He had 24 points (8-15 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 7-9 FT), 12 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals in 40 minutes on Wednesday against the Raptors.

Leonard scored well, and he did so primarily from the free throw line, where he accounted for nearly a third of his points.

He’s been doing a good job on the boards as of late, too, with double-digit boards in each of the last two games. On six separate occasions, Leonard has topped the 20-point mark.

UPDATE (Mar. 05):

Sunday’s game against the Grizzlies will be Leonard’s return to action after a day of recuperation.

As it was the second night of a back-to-back, Leonard was given the night off in Friday’s loss to the Kings. The veteran’s stats since the beginning of February have been as follows: 26.4 points on 50.54.90 percent shooting, 6.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.0 block in 37.2 minutes per game.

UPDATE (Mar. 03):

Law Murray of The Athletic says that Leonard will not play Friday against the Kings because he is getting treatment for an injury to his right knee.

Leonard will not play Friday, as the Clippers continue to play it safe in preparation for what they hope will be a deep playoff run.

The Clippers’ next game is on Sunday against the Grizzlies, giving Leonard plenty of time to get ready for what should be a very important game for both teams.
