Los Angeles Clippers star Kawhi Leonard is out Wednesday night against the Jazz.

According to Brian Windhorst, the star forward for Los Angeles is out with a knee injury that he suffered in game four. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

To make matters worse, Leonard’s status going forward for the remaining games in the series “is in doubt.”

The hits just keep coming for NBA stars. First, Chris Paul gets put in the NBA’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols, and Kawhi Leonard is now in serious jeopardy of not playing the rest of the series.

If you’re an NBA executive, you have to be very worried with what you’re seeing right now.

The last thing the NBA needs is for Leonard to miss the rest of the Clippers/Jazz series, which is currently tied at 2-2.

He’s one of the best players in the league, and the NBA needs as much firepower on the court as possible.

Hopefully, he’s able to bounce back quickly and return by game six. Trust me when I say that nobody wants to see Kawhi off of the floor.
