Kawhi Leonard was reported as having an ACL injury during the Utah Jazz series, and most people assumed that he would be done for the season. However, it seems as though there is a chance of Kawhi Leonard returning.

Reggie Jackson has recently given an update on Kawhi Leonard, saying that he is trying to get back as soon as possible. Chris Haynes has stated that Kawhi Leonard didn't travel with the team in order to focus on rehabbing his injury at home, so it definitely seems like if the Los Angeles Clippers can outlast Leonard's injury, that he may be back during their playoff run.

If Kawhi Leonard manages to make it back, that would be a welcome boost for the Los Angeles Clippers. He is an elite two-way superstar that can carry an offense by himself. However, the goal should be to focus on making sure his knee/ACL is alright, rather than risking his health. Hopefully, Leonard is able to play sooner rather than later, and potentially help the Clippers make the Finals.
