Spurs manager Gregg Popovich pronounced he thinks he’ll list Leonard as controversial for Game 3, after he ruled Leonard out for Game 2 since of a sprained left ankle caused by what Popovich described as a “dangerous” and “unsportsmanlike” closeout by Golden State’s Zaza Pachulia.
Leonard had an MRI on Monday, and Popovich had no calendar for when his star actor would be means to lapse to action.
“The thing that worries me is he did it again,” Popovich said. “So one would logically consider maybe it will take longer, though I’m anticipating that’s not loyal and that we’ll have him for Game 3. But we don’t know. And we don’t consider we’ll know until Friday or Saturday.”
Leonard left Game 1 on Sunday after reinjuring his proposal left ankle in a third quarter, when Pachulia’s feet slid underneath Leonard’s following a jumper by a All-Star forward.
The play happened in front of a Spurs bench, and Popovich was indignant during a time and even some-more dissapoint a day after San Antonio’s 113-111 detriment to a Warriors.
Leonard scored 26 points on 7-of-13 sharpened in scarcely 24 mins to go with 8 rebounds and 3 assists. He done all 11 of his giveaway throws.
