Leonard, George Placed On Health And Safety Protocol List

Clippers stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George will miss the team’s game in Atlanta on Tuesday after being placed on the league’s health and safety protocol list, the team’s PR department announced.

The superstar duo didn’t fly to Atlanta with the rest of the team, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN tweets.

The Clippers, who are off to a 13-4 start, carry a seven-game winning streak into their six-game road trip. They’re also schedule to face Miami (Thursday), Orlando (Friday), New York (Sunday), Brooklyn (Tuesday, Feb. 2) and Cleveland (Wednesday, Feb. 3) before returning home to face Boston on Friday, Feb. 5.

It’s possible that Leonard and/or George will join the team at some point on its journey if they clear protocols, Youngmisuk adds.

Leonard and George are the latest big-name players to miss time due to COVID-19 protocols. Jimmy Butler, Karl-Anthony Towns, Kevin Durant and Jayson Tatum are among the top-level players who have been sidelined by the protocols in recent weeks.

        unless bogdanovic gets his shooting stroke back, its possible they can get past at least the first and second round. clarkson’s doing more than expected and favors is solid off the bench and ofc niang has expanded his offense and is very consistent even in limited minutes.

    Just keeps coming. We need to pump out those vaccines. We are so close yet so far.

    So in other words this a way for clippers to go around the system and rest players without receiving flak

      When the Lakers fail to repeat during the playoffs he will get blamed for it.

        Well played Houston but I disagree with your take. Lakers have real leadership who would own up to their loss unlike the Clippers and they have the depth to cover up his deficiencies.
