However, Leonard is expected to join the team in a few days.

“Leonard was given permission by the organization to tend to a family matter and the two-time Defensive Player of the Year and two-time NBA Finals MVP is expected to join the team on campus in a few days, sources said,” wrote Haynes.

Leonard, 29, signed with the Clippers last summer.

The Clippers’ championship hopes hinge on the All-Star. He is putting up 26.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game this season.

Last season, Leonard won a title with the Toronto Raptors over the Golden State Warriors. The defensive titan was named the 2019 NBA Finals MVP.
