Los Angeles Clippers superstar Kawhi Leonard is set to miss the game against Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday.
He had missed a few games previously in the season with a knee injury.
As per Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN now, Kawhi Leonard is out for the game against Memphis due to injury management.
In the last game that Leonard had missed, Terance Mann got an opportunity to start the game, which might be the case once again on Wednesday.
Leonard scored 28 points in the Clipper’s last game that saw them win against Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday. It was the first away game for Los Angeles Clippers this season where the duo of Paul George and Leonard played together. The injury management for Leonard now means that Wednesday will not see the second.
Paul George and Kawhi Leonard have played 4 games together this season. The Clippers are 4-0 in those games, and the pair has increased their combined point total in each game.
