The two-time NBA Finals MVP was originally diagnosed with a knee sprain, but the Clippers reportedly feared an ACL injury.

Leonard has averaged 26 points, 6.8 boards, five assists, and 1.7 steals over two seasons in Los Angeles. The five-time All-Star can become a free agent this offseason if he declines his $36-million player option for 2021-22.
