Will Kawhi Leonard (LA Clippers) be able to stay healthy this season?
“Leonard, who suffered a knee injury in the playoffs, is preparing to join training camp,” local media outlet Clutch Point reported on July 7.
Leonard’s health is the biggest question mark for the 카지노사이트 Los Angeles Clippers heading into the 2023-2024 season. After leading the Toronto Raptors to their first championship in the 2019 Finals, where he was named Finals MVP, Leonard joined the Clippers in free agency. It was the first time in history that a Finals MVP switched teams immediately afterward.
Leonard continued to play well after joining the Clippers, but durability was an issue. He tore his ACL in the 2021 playoffs and missed the entire 2021-2022 season, and he played just 52 regular-season games in 2022-2023. His 23.8 points per game average was his lowest since joining the Clippers.
Worst of all, he was injured in the playoffs. Leonard started in the first round of the playoffs against the Phoenix Suns with Paul George out for the season, but went down with a knee injury after just two games. Without the one-two punch, the Clippers ultimately failed to advance to the second round of the playoffs.
“Leonard is one of the biggest question marks for the Clippers as they prepare for the 2023-2024 season,” said Clutch Point. The Clippers have the pedigree to be a championship contender, but they have not been immune to injury issues for some time, most notably when Leonard and Paul George were sidelined for extended periods of time, which dampened the Clippers’ championship aspirations.”
Leonard, who tore the meniscus in his right knee in April, is expected to be ready for training camp. “Leonard suffered a serious knee injury in the playoffs, but according to Clippers coach Tyronn Lue, he’s on track to be ready for training camp,” Clutch Point reported.
In fact, Leonard is making good progress in his rehabilitation and recently traveled to San Diego’s Petco Park to watch the San Diego Padres take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in a major league game. Leonard is a graduate of San Diego State University.
Despite the health question marks, it’s clear that Leonard is a key piece for the Clippers as they look to win their first championship in franchise history. “It’s great news that Leonard is on track to be ready for training camp,” said Clutch Point. It’s no exaggeration to say that the Clippers’ championship hopes could depend on it.”
