It was reported early on Wednesday that Los Angeles Clippers superstar Kawhi Leonard could potentially miss the rest of the Clippers’ playoff series against the Utah Jazz because of a knee injury.
It is now being reported that the Clippers fear he may have suffered an ACL injury during Game 4 against the Jazz.

Losing Leonard is obviously a huge blow to the Clippers, as he is putting up a ridiculous 30.4 points, 7.7 boards, 4.4 assists and 2.1 steals per game in the 2021 playoffs.
The Clippers and Jazz are currently tied 2-2 in their series with Game 5 set to take place Wednesday night in Utah.
In the coming days, more information is surely to come out regarding this situation. The Clippers will be hoping that Leonard is somehow able to return this postseason as they look to win their first championship in franchise history.
