Kawhi Leonard dominates in 4th, 'shocked' National Basketball Association detailed his injury

Paul George Clippers

The Clippers lost last night's game against the Bucks, 129-124.

The Clippers have basically been fined because Doc Rivers keeps contradicting the league office's justification for letting them sit Leonard, according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon.

Regarding Leonard, Rivers said, "He feels great".

Some feel like Leonard is doing the league a disservice by missing games although the Clippers are adamant that Kawhi does, in fact, have an injury. "We want him to just keep feeling better and getting better". The team has reasonably determined that Leonard is suffering from an ongoing injury to the patella tendon in his left knee and has been placed by the team at this time on an injury protocol for back-to-back games.

With the Clippers scheduled with a back-to-back, the team felt it was better for Kawhi to miss a game against an Eastern Conference foe instead of against the Portland Trail Blazers, a Western Conference team, on the second night. In May, Rivers said on ESPN that Leonard "is the most like Jordan that we've seen" when likening the All-Star physically to former National Basketball Association great Michael Jordan.

The NBA was also involved in this decision, justifying the Clippers' reasoning for sitting Leonard out - an intervention that is unprecedented when it comes to the handling of load management. I and two Clipperholics' contributors discussed the merits of resting, why Kawhi's case is different, who is to blame, and if there are any possible solutions to the load managing "problem". With averages of 28.0 points, 8.2 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.2 steals per game, he was both a finalist for league MVP and Defensive Player of the Year last season.
