Kawhi Leonard on status for Game 3: 'It's just questionable for tomorrow'
Spurs All-Star forward re-aggravated his ankle in Game 1 and was forced to sit all of Game 2
Since Leonard left Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors after re-spraining his left ankle, it has been all Warriors, as they made a 23-point comeback in the second half to win Game 1, then cruised to a 36-point victory in Game 2 with Leonard sitting on the bench.
Unfortunately for San Antonio, it's still not clear if Leonard will be able to lace them up for Game 3 on Saturday night. Speaking to reporters on Friday, Leonard said, regarding his availability, "it's just questionable." Via The Mercury News:
"I'm not sure, I mean, it's still not ready," Leonard said. "It's just questionable for tomorrow. I could be feeling way better. We'll see tomorrow."
"Just seeing if I can run and at least be myself on the court." Don't want to hobble around or shoot off-balance shots. Just want to be able to push with both legs. Just that, really."
The Spurs don't want to admit defeat and sit Leonard, but they also have to consider the task of beating the Warriors four times in five games. Is it worth sending Leonard out there on a wobbly ankle he's sprained twice in the span of a few weeks for the small chance of making a comeback.
