Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard ruled out for Game 4 of WCF vs. Suns
The Los Angeles Clippers will once again be without Kawhi Leonard in their next matchup against the Phoenix Suns in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.
Clippers head coach Tyronn Lue said during his media availability on Friday that Leonard is out for Saturday’s contest at the Staples Center due to his sprained right knee.
Leonard hasn’t been able to play at all in the first three games of the Western Conference Finals and has missed his team’s last five contests.
The Clippers forward sustained the injury in Game 4 of their respective Western Conference semifinals series against the Utah Jazz.
However, despite not having one of the league’s best players, Los Angeles is 3-2 over those five games, with both losses coming to the Suns.
Phoenix will look to move one win away from the NBA Finals in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals on Saturday night.
Tip-off is set for 6 p.m.
