June 16 (UPI) -- All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard will miss Game 5 of the Los Angeles Clippers playoff series against the Utah Jazz, and potentially more time, due to a right knee injury, the team announced Wednesday.
The Clippers said Leonard sustained a right knee sprain in Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals series Monday in Los Angeles. The team said there is "no timetable for his return."
Game 5 is at 10 p.m. EDT Wednesday at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City. The best-of-seven series is tied at 2-2. The winner advances to the Western Conference Finals.
Leonard sustained the injury when he landed awkwardly in the fourth quarter of the Clippers' Game 4 win Monday at Staples Center. He scored 31 points with seven rebounds and three assists in the victory.
Leonard was asked about the injury in his postgame news conference, but responded "I'll be good." The five-time All-Star averaged 24.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 52 regular-season games in 2020-21.
Leonard has averaged 30.4 points, 7.7 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 2.1 steals per game through 11 appearances so far this postseason.
