The good news, however, came from ESPN’s Michael Wright, who reported that Leonard’s MRI confirmed there had been no structural damage done to the ankle. That leaves optimistic fans eyeing a potential Game 3 return.
Leonard left in the second half of Game 1 on Sunday after landing on Zaza Pachulia’s foot. He also missed the end of Game 5 and all of Game 6 versus the Houston Rockets, due to the same injury.
There are three days of rest between Game 2 and Game 3, which will be on Saturday back in San Antonio.
Get well soon, Kawhi.
