Organization’s statement on Leonard’s injury

The organization continues to refer to “injury management” as the reason for his absence when asked about the specifics of his condition. According to the information provided so far, Leonard is currently reporting tightness in his surgically repaired knee.

While some of this is to be expected for a player recovering from an ACL tear, Leonard has only participated in two of the team’s first nine games, so the Clippers did not anticipate this.

As Lue had previously stated, it sounds like the team will continue to take things game by game.

Of course, the Clippers want their star forward back, but they’ll still be careful around him. The team won’t hurry Leonard because they are concerned with protecting his long-term health. The team is unable to commit to any timeline, thus they are left playing a waiting game.
