The San Antonio Spurs didn’t have Kawhi Leonard in crunchtime during their thrilling win over the Rockets on Tuesday, and they might not have the two-time Defensive Player of the Year for San Antonio’s potential closeout game against the Rockets in Game 6.
The Spurs listed Leonard as questionable for Thursday’s game in Houston after he suffered an ankle injury late in San Antonio’s 110-107 win. Leonard played 38 minutes and finished with 22 points and 15 rebounds as the Spurs took a 3-2 series lead.
Leonard is averaging 23.8 points, 9.8 rebounds and 5.8 assists in the series. The Spurs are already without starting point guard Tony Parker, who suffered a ruptured quad in Game 2 of this series.
