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.
Now, the All-Star is looking to replicate that success with the Clippers. The Clippers are the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.
The 2019-20 season is set to resume on July 30 in Orlando, Fla.
