Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals between San Antonio and Houston will only feature one MVP candidate, as Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard will watch his team try to win the series from the sideline. Leonard suffered an ankle injury in Game 5 that will keep him out of the game, according to Gregg Popovich.

Earlier in the day, Popovich announced that Leonard would be a game-time decision, saying that holding Leonard out would give him more time to heal for a potential Game 7 and beyond. This was evident as Popovich elaborated on the decision to hold out Leonard, as he said that the team’s two-way star wanted to play on Thursday.
