Kawhi Leonard Enters Concussion Protocol

According to a team press release, Kawhi Leonard has entered the NBA’s Concussion Protocol. Per the release: “Leonard, who was hit in the head in last night’s Spurs-Thunder game, will not play in tomorrow night’s Spurs-Warriors contest. The team will provide updates on his return to the court as appropriate.”

Per the league’s official website, Leonard was injured in the second half of Thursday’s game with OKC, when he was struck on the left side of his head by Victor Oladipo. The Spurs are within striking distance of Golden State for the Western Conference’s No. 1 seed, and Leonard’s absence won’t help them close the gap this weekend.

According to Anthony Slater of Mercury News, Warriors coach Steve Kerr is unsure if he’ll rest any of his starters against the short-handed Spurs (Twitter link).

In addition to Leonard, Tony Parker is questionable for the contest due to back stiffness (Twitter link).

  1. That’s crummy. I was really looking forward to the Warriors and Spurs matchup. Well let’s see how these two teams do without their two Stars.

  2. And now three Warriors starters are not playing Saturday. That really sucks. It’s going to be more like a preseason game

    Does it matter if they keep letting curry take the 4th quarter make or break shots? When’s the last time he made one? They would of won last night if klay took the last shot.

    Kawhi is out, Curry, Klay, Dray, and Andre are out too. This game went from one of the best of the season to a no watch. You got Aldridge and Gasol against Javale McGee and Shaun Livingston. Spurs win easily
