Per the Express-News:
Leonard suffered a sprained left ankle in the middle of the third quarter of Game 5 on Tuesday, missing the end of the fourth and all of overtime in the Spurs’ 110-107 win in Game 5. He injured the ankle after inadvertently stepping on James Harden’s foot while chasing a loose ball./em>

“I’m going to play,” he said.
