Leonard has been ruled out for Tuesday's game at Indiana with right foot soreness, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
The 29-year-old rested Sunday against the Pistons and will be sidelined for a second straight contest due to foot soreness. Leonard's availability is also in question for the second half of the back-to-back set Wednesday at Detroit. Luke Kennard is a likely candidate to start in his absence.
Leonard (rest) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Detroit, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Leonard will get a rest day Sunday and won't be available against the Pistons. As a result, Luke Kennard and Nicolas Batum could see increased run for the Clippers, especially with Patrick Beverley (hand) and Serge Ibaka (back) also sidelined with injuries.
Leonard scored 31 points (11-20 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-7 FT) while adding eight assists, five rebounds and a steal in 33 minutes during Friday's win over the Rockets.
The 29-year-old appears to be gearing up for the stretch run. Since missing a game in late March with some foot soreness, Leonard has averaged 26.1 points, 7.8 boards, 6.1 assists, 1.8 threes and 1.4 steals over his last eight contests.
Leonard registered 27 points (10-20 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds and five assists across 38 minutes in Thursday's win over the Suns.
Leonard was effective from the field and contributed in other categories while ending as Los Angeles' second-best scorer behind Paul George, who mustered 33 points. Leonard continues to score at an impressive rate, however, and he has posted 23 or more points in eight of his last nine contests. His impact goes well beyond the scoring column, and while he filled the stat sheet admirably, he also ended a streak of three straight double-doubles in this one.
Leonard scored 29 points (10-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-9 FT) while adding 12 rebounds and seven assists in 36 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Trail Blazers.
Paul George dropped a game-high 36 for the Clippers, but Leonard wasn't far behind, and he led Los Angeles in boards and assists to boot. It's the third straight double-double for Kawhi but only his fifth on the season, and the two-time NBA Finals MVP seems to be finding an extra gear as the regular season enters its final stretch.
Leonard recorded 19 points (8-15 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, eight assists and two steals Sunday in a 104-86 win over the Lakers.
Leonard helped the Clippers end their two-game losing streak with a comprehensive stat line. For only the second time all season, Leonard recorded at least 10 boards and seven assists in the same game, with his contributions in those categories helping to compensate for a relatively low scoring total.
Leonard posted 24 points (10-22 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 39 minutes in Thursday's 101-94 loss to the Nuggets.
Despite the loss, Leonard has been on a heater. Over the past four games, the All-Star has averaged 25.8 points, 7.5 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 2.0 steals. His total on Thursday was expected to be even higher, but teammate Paul George shed his injury tag and joined Leonard on the court.
Leonard recorded 28 points (10-20 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, five assists and a steal across 35 minutes in Tuesday's loss against the Magic.
Leonard carried the Clippers offensively in this game, but his contributions were not enough, and Los Angeles ended losing in heart-breaking fashion while featuring a depleted roster due to injuries. Team struggles aside, Leonard continues to be a reliable fantasy asset in all formats and has an extremely high floor due to his stat-filling ability on both ends of the court. He has also scored 20 or more points in four games in a row while reaching that feat in 11 of his last 12 contests.
Leonard mustered 23 points (10-21 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists and two steals across 36 minutes in Monday's win over the Bucks.
Leonard ended just one rebound and two assists shy of putting up a triple-double in Monday's win, and he has now scored at least 23 points in four games in a row. Leonard remains a must-start player across all formats, but his upside and usage rate might be even higher Tuesday against the Magic if Paul George (foot) misses out again.
Leonard posted 28 points (9-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 9-11 FT), four rebounds, four assists and three steals across 34 minutes in Saturday's 122-112 win over the Sixers.
Leonard showed no ill effects from the foot injury that sidelined him Thursday, and he did his best to ruin Doc Rivers' welcome-home party in the Staples Center. It was likely a case of deja-vu for Rivers, who watched Leonard and Paul George work some nifty transition plays that left the Sixers flat-footed. Leonard's only knock is his propensity to sit on the occasional back-to-back, which can prove frustrating for managers in weekly leagues.
Leonard (foot) will play Saturday against the 76ers, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
After a one-game absence due to a foot injury, Leonard will be back in action Saturday. This month, he's averaged 22.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 2.6 steals in 33.1 minutes.
Leonard (foot) is listed as questionable for Saturday's matchup with the 76ers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
Leonard was a late scratch from Thursday's game against the Spurs due to right foot sorenss. The same issue is putting him in danger of missing his second straight contest. His final status will likely be determined by how he is feeling closer to tip-off. Luke Kennard and Terance Mann are likely candidates to see extra minutes should he end up sitting out again.
Leonard is out for Thursday's game against the Spurs due to right foot soreness, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com reports.
Unexpectedly, Leonard has been ruled out only a couple hours before tipoff. In his absence, Luke Kennard and Terance Mann are strong candidates to see extra minutes.
Leonard went for 25 points (9-12 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, five steals and three assists across 32 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Spurs.
Leonard has now scored 25 points in back-to-back games, but he's also made his presence felt on both ends of the court -- his five steals here represent his second-highest mark of the season in that category. Leonard has scored 20 or more points in nine of the Clippers' last 10 games and should be the team's go-to player on offense going forward, especially given Paul George's recent shooting struggles.
Leonard produced 25 points (8-14 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, two blocked shots and a steal across 33 minutes in Monday's 119-110 win over the Hawks.
Leonard will always be an elite option whenever he takes the floor, but his value in DFS has taken a bit of a hit in recent weeks. His prohibitive salary has failed to meet an appropriate value over his past few games, but Monday's stat line is a step in the right direction. Leonard easily combined shot volume and secondary contribution while elite counterpart Paul George struggled from the floor.
Leonard recorded 17 points (6-13 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four assists, four steals and three rebounds Saturday in a 125-98 win versus Charlotte.
Leonard took a back seat to Paul George, who led the Clippers in scoring and logged a double-double. Leonard's performance was instead defined by his four steals -- a number he's hit five times this season. Looking ahead, Leonard is slated for a four-game Week 14, so he projects to be among the week's most productive stars.
Leonard tallied 20 points (9-21 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-4 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists and two steals in Wednesday's loss to Dallas.
Two nights after beating the Mavs by double digits, the Clippers turned in a lackluster effort, managing just 89 points and shooting 42 percent from the field as a team. Leonard and Paul George (28 points) were the only two Clippers players to score in double figures. Leonard had an uncharacteristically off night at the free-throw line, but he's still shooting north of 87 percent from the stripe on the season.
Leonard compiled 22 points (9-20 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and four steals across 40 minutes in Monday's 109-99 win over the Mavericks.
Leonard was a full go in the back-to-back, which was slightly unexpected considering the team's penchant to rest the All-Star in this scenario. The Clippers were eager to right the ship after Sunday night's embarrassing loss to the Pelicans, and Sunday's game was likely a key factor in Leonard's decision to play. He didn't disappoint, scoring 22 points alongside superlative secondary numbers.
Leonard tallied 23 points (9-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two steals across 29 minutes in Sunday's loss to New Orleans.
The game was all but determined after the Pelicans outscored Los Angeles by 17 points in the third quarter, leading to Leonard spending the entire fourth period on the bench. Still, the veteran paced the Clippers with 23 points, and he has now notched 20-plus points in 19 of his past 20 contests. Leonard is just below last season's per-game numbers at 26.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.8 assists, but he has improved his field-goal rate to 51.7 percent.
Leonard finished with 28 points (10-17 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and three steals in 31 minutes during Thursday's 130-104 victory over the Warriors.
Leonard powered the Clippers to a comprehensive victory, falling just one rebound short of a double-double. His line could have been even better had he been required during the final quarter, at which point the game was well and truly over. Despite a couple of minor injuries this season, Leonard has been tremendous for his fantasy GMs. Given that he is now available for back-to-backs, he should continue to be an elite option the rest of the way.
