Leonard recorded 17 points (6-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven assists and five rebounds Thursday in a 122-94 loss versus Memphis. Leonard's 17 points were disappointing, as those tied his second-lowest scoring output across 27 games this season. Even so, his points and assists tallies both led a Clippers squad that could not get it going in Memphis. Despite the underwhelming output Thursday, Leonard remains a highly favorable option for fantasy value heading into a rematch against the Grizzlies on Friday.
Leonard finished with 32 points (13-20 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-6 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and one steal in 34 minutes Tuesday in the Clippers' 135-116 win over the Wizards. Leonard was among a trio of Clippers who tied for a team-best four assists. He also put up his ninth game of 30-plus points this season and pushed his field-goal conversion rate to a superb 51.2 percent on the campaign. Leonard is also shooting 87.0 percent from the free-throw line and posting per-game averages of 27.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.7 steals on the season. His lack of any substantial flaws makes him one of fantasy's elite overall performers.
Leonard logged 29 points (9-19 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists and one steal in Sunday's 112-108 loss to the Nets. Leonard took the same amount of shots as Paul George (12-19 FG), but the former Finals MVP was less efficient. But because the Clippers mostly played small, it allowed Leonard to record a team-high 13 rebounds en route to his fifth double-double this season. Leonard has shown no side effects from his lower-leg injury and should remain a valuable fantasy option heading into the Clippers' upcoming four-game week.
Leonard (lower leg) recorded 29 points (10-24 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 9-10 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one block across 38 minutes Friday in the Clippers' 116-112 win over the Jazz. In his return from a three-game absence, Leonard looked like his normal self, serving as the Clippers' primary scorer en route to leading the team to a victory over the red-hot Jazz. Perhaps more encouraging than the production itself was that Leonard faced no limitations in his return, as his 38 minutes tied his second-highest total of the season. The Clippers also returned Paul George (hamstring) from a multi-game absence Friday, so the team will have both of its stars available for a highly-anticipated matchup Sunday versus Brooklyn.
Leonard (lower leg) is active and starting Friday's game against the Jazz, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Leonard missed the past three games due to a left leg bruise, but he'll return to the court Friday alongside co-star Paul George (toe). Although he'll be back in action against Utah, Leonard will have an unspecified minutes restriction Friday, Garrett Chorpenning of SI.com reports.
