Kawhi Leonard Is ‘Likely’ Out For Game 4 As The Warriors Look To Sweep

Spurs-Warriors was supposed to be a great series and the first real test for Golden State this postseason, and through 28 minutes of Game 1, that appeared to be the case as San Antonio jumped out to a 23-point lead before Kawhi Leonard’s ankle rolled over on a questionable foul from Zaza Pachulia.

That injury, which was an aggravation of the ankle injury that forced Leonard out of the end of Game 5 and all of Game 6 against the Rockets, has cause Kawhi to miss the last two games as the Warriors have dominated the Spurs to take a 3-0 lead in his absence. For those hoping for a return in Game 4 to salvage at least one more competitive game before the NBA Finals, that dream is likely dead after Gregg Popovich’s media availability on Sunday morning when he updated Kawhi’s status for Monday’s Game 4.
