When will Kawhi Leonard return to the floor again? The current state of Kawhi Leonard, the 30-year old winger, remains a mystery. He has missed eight games this season. His Los Angeles Clippers franchise stated in a single sentence Tuesday that he had undergone surgery to repair a partial tear in the anterior cruciate joint in his right leg. No return date was scheduled.
Two-time NBA champion, in 2014 with San Antonio and 2019 with Toronto, was injured the same way as Spencer Dinwiddie from Brooklyn Nets. We can calculate the length of his absence at six monthsLeonard would be out of commission for at least two and a quarter months during the next regular season. This is expected to happen on October 19..pepsia
Leonard could leave the Clippers in this summer
The Clippers were greatly affected by Kawhi Leonard’s inability to play from 2-2 in round two of the play-offs against Utah. The Clippers were hurt because even though the Jazz were eliminated (4-2), the Clippers couldn’t resist the Phoenix Suns (4-2), who won the Conference final. Paul George, another Clippers star, felt a little lonely in Leonard’s absence. He averaged 30.4 point, 7.7 rebound, 4.4 assists, and 2.1 steals across eleven playoff games this season.It remains to see if Kawhi Leonard will be wearing the Clippers jersey when he returns to court.
Indeed, the native of Los Angeles has a “player option” at 36 million dollars to activate, or not, this summer. The Clippers’ owner will ultimately decide if he wants to remain with them. Even though he had two disappointing first seasons, with Denver leading 3-1 and Denver losing 3-1 in the Conference semifinals, the second ending with injury, we believe he wants to return for a third season. This will allow them to win their first ever title.
