Leonard, George Returning To Action Monday

Clippers stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George will play tonight, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN tweets. It’s just the fifth time they’ll be available for the same game this season.

Coming off knee surgery that kept him out last season, Leonard has been limited to five games this season. The Clippers have gone 2-4 since his last appearance on Nov. 21, when he suffered a sprained ankle.

George has missed seven straight contests with a strained right hamstring. He’s averaging 23.6 points and 6.0 rebounds in 16 starts.

Reserve guard Luke Kennard will also be in uniform. He has been out since Nov. 15 due to a calf injury.

Coach Tyronn Lue called it an “exciting day” to have most of his rotation players available, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times tweets. Norman Powell (groin) is the only regular who won’t be ready to go against Charlotte.
