LA Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard will miss Monday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, sources told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.
Leonard suffered a left knee contusion in the second half of the Clippers loss to the Houston Rockets on Wednesday and did not play against New Orleans on Thursday and Atlanta on Saturday.
Leonard has now missed five of the Clippers’ 14 games this season, and has yet to play alongside star teammate Paul George — who made his Clippers debut on Thursday.
George has helped mitigate Leonard’s absence, having scored 70 points in just 44 minutes over the last two games.
Leonard’s been effective as well when he’s been on the court this season, averaging 26.8 points per game to go along with a career-high 6 assists.
