  • Leonard will start at center for Monday's Game 4 against the Warriors, Jason Quick of CSN Northwest reports. After not even touching the floor in Game 3, Leonard will get the starting nod with Jusuf Nurkic (leg) ruled out once again like he had been for Game 1 and 2. Even though Nurkic is out and Leonard is getting the start, Leonard has only averaged 10 minutes per game in the series thus far, and it's possible he'll be limited to around that same number Monday.

  • Leonard will come off the bench for Game 1 against the Warriors on Sunday. With Jusuf Nurkic (lower leg) sidelined, the Trail Blazers have gone back and forth between Noah Vonleh and Leonard at center depending on the opposing matchup. It appears coach Terry Stotts will be going with a smaller unit against a quicker Golden State team, so the Trail Blazers will go with Evan Turner, Maurice Harkless and Noah Vonleh in the frontcourt, while moving Leonard to the bench. Leonard could see a slight decrease in minutes, but considering he's just one of two healthy centers on the roster, it likely won't be by much.

  • Leonard totaled nine points (3-8 FG, 3-8 3Pt), five rebounds and one assist over 30 minutes in Saturday's 101-86 win over the Jazz. After being pulled from the starting five Friday, coach Terry Stotts opted to put Leonard back on the first unit at the last minute Saturday and afforded him a season-high amount of minutes. The fifth-year guard provided his second nine-point effort over the last three games while also posting his best rebound total since Mar. 14. With Jusuf Nurkic (leg) out until the postseason, Leonard could see starts in the last two games.

  • Leonard will be in the Trail Blazers' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Jazz, Jason Quick of CSNNW.com reports. Leonard was subject to a late swap by coach Terry Stotts, ultimately receiving the start in Portland's frontcourt over Al-Farouq Aminu. Leonard has not hit the 25-minute mark in a single contest since mid-March.

  • Although he was announced by the team as a starter, Leonard will come off the bench Tuesday against the Jazz, Trail Blazers' beat writer Casey Holdahl reports. Leonard was replaced by Al-Farouq Aminu moments before tip-off as the team's starter. Leonard had been starting for the injured Jusuf Nurkic, but had been struggling in the role. It is unclear if the team will continue with Aminu as the starter going forward or not.
