Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard has been ruled out for Game 3 vs. Warriors The Warriors have looked dominant in the Western Conference finals since San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard went down with an injury in the third quarter of Game 1, but you can never count out the Spurs.
The long layoff wasn’t enough for Leonard’s injured ankle to heal, so he will sit out once again for Saturday’s Game 3. The Warriors will also be shorthanded, as center Zaza Pachulia will miss the game with an injured heel. Not exactly an even swap. The Spurs look to win their first game of the series, as the Warriors try to stay unbeaten in the 2017 playoffs and take a commanding 3-0 lead in the series. Here’s how to watch the game.
In the end, I guess it’s my decision,” Popovich said. “He’s not thrilled that he’s not playing. But he’s not ready, so we’re not going to play him.” Leonard initially suffered the injury in the third quarter of Game 1, on a borderline dirty play from Golden State’s Zaza Pachulia. Popovich admitted that he considered the long-term health of Leonard before making the final call to sit him.
