Update: Kawhi Leonard now questionable for Game 2 against Mavs

Published April 23, 2024 at 2:48 PM

Kawhi Leonard, the Clippers' star player, is still listed as questionable for Tuesday night's Game 2 against the Dallas Mavericks in their first-round playoff series. Leonard has been sidelined since March 31 and did not participate in Sunday's Game 1, marking his ninth consecutive game missed due to injury.

"He's going to go through practice today and we'll see," Lue responded when questioned about Leonard's availability for Tuesday.

Coach Ty Lue noted that Leonard took part in Monday's practice, which was a non-contact session focused on tactical adjustments and corrections. Despite his participation, Leonard has not engaged in any contact drills recently, which raises questions about his readiness to return.

The decision on Leonard's availability will likely be made close to game time at 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday, following his performance during pregame warmups. Should Leonard be unable to play, the Clippers are expected to lean on P.J. Tucker and Amir Coffey for extended minutes to fill the gap left by his absence. The team and fans alike are eagerly awaiting any positive signs that might indicate Leonard's return to the court as the Clippers aim to build on their current momentum in the series.
