Kawhi Leonard Injures Left Ankle in Game 1

UPDATE: According to ESPN‘S Michael C. Wright, Kawhi’s MRI revealed that there was no structural damage to his left ankle.

He is still listed as doubtful for Game 2 on Tuesday.


Kawhi Leonard was putting on a show in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, helping the Spurs gain a double digit lead over the Warriors with 26 points and 8 rebounds.

But in the third quarter, the All-Star forward rolled his ankle pretty bad and immediately headed to the locker room. He did not return.

Golden State proceeded to storm back, outscoring San Antonio 58-33 in the 19:53 that Leonard was off the floor.

Pop had no updates in the postgame press conference.

On Twitter, many people accused Zaza of making a dirty play. Here’s what the big man had to say afterwards:
