Los Angeles Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard won't have any minute restrictions for Tuesday's season opener against the Lakers. Head coach Doc Rivers downplayed the potential of load management this season. Paul George (shoulder) is expected to be sidelined until November, so Leonard will be asked to lead the team by himself to start the season. The Clippers are going to rest Leonard throughout the season, but he's such a special player that fantasy owners can live with it.
Los Angeles Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard (rest) might not suit up for Thursday's preseason contest, according to head coach Doc Rivers. It appears unlikely that Leonard is going to suit up at all this preseason. The Clippers want to be cautious with Leonard going into a huge season for the organization. There is going to be plenty of resting for Leonard throughout the season, so fantasy owners are going to have a headache with Leonard.
The Los Angeles Clippers have agreed to a four-year, $142 million deal with forward Kawhi Leonard on Saturday. Leonard, who averaged a career-high 26.6 points per game while shooting nearly 50 percent from the field with the Raptors last season, will undoubtedly be a top-five selection in upcoming fantasy drafts, despite being paired with newly acquired forward Paul George and missing a few games due to load management purposes.
