Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard out for Game 5 vs. Jazz

Kawhi Leonard is out for Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinal series on Wednesday with a knee injury.

The Los Angeles Clippers confirmed Leonard has a sprained right knee and won’t play in Game 5.



ESPN reported Leonard’s status for the remainder of the best-of-seven series is very much in doubt.

A First Team All-NBA selection this season, Leonard left Game 4 against the Utah Jazz with a right knee injury, but said “I’ll be good” for Game 5.

Leonard grabbed for the knee after bumping into Utah’s Joe Ingles, and he departed less than a minute later.

The Clippers travel to Utah for Game 5 after winning the last two games to tie the series.
