The Los Angeles Clippers will again be without Kawhi Leonard in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals against the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday and another top defender in Marcus Morris is banged up as well.
Clippers coach Ty Lue said on Monday that Leonard remains out with a sprained right knee. There has been no change in his status, which remains uncertain for the remainder of the series.
Lue said he isn’t sure about Morris’ status for Game 2 after the starting power forward injured his right knee and only played five minutes in the second half of the Clippers’ 120-114 loss to the Suns in Game 1.
Morris, who is receiving treatment on his knee, was not listed on the Clippers’ injury report late Monday afternoon.
“Still experiencing some soreness, but he’s been getting treatment around the clock,” Lue said of Morris. “Not quite sure of his status tomorrow, but he’s doing everything in his power to try to be out there tomorrow night.”
