Clippers vs. Cavaliers Injuries: 3 Out, 3 Questionable


The Los Angeles Clippers won their fifth straight game on Saturday, beating the Atlanta Hawks 120-113 on the road behind 55-point performances from Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

Leonard scored 32 points on 12-of-20 shooting (including 5-of-10 from three-point range), with eight boards and four assists to boot. George had a double-double of 23 points and 7 boards and 6 helpers. And if they want to beat the Cavaliers on the road, they’ll need to keep that momentum going into this game.

  • Kawhi Leonard – Ready

During Saturday’s victory over Atlanta, Leonard played a total of 39 minutes and contributed 32 points (12-20 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, one block, and one steal. The game’s final score was 120-113.

The Clippers have won five games in a row thanks to Leonard, who is showing no signs of slowing down as he continues to improve. Leonard has made his comeback with a vengeance after getting off to a rocky start to the season, which has been well documented.

He has been the third-ranked player in leagues with 12 teams over the course of the previous month, providing managers with a much-needed bright spot. Although it is possible that he will continue to miss back-to-back games, those who roster him should consider this a relatively minor sacrifice given the overall picture of the situation.


The last time Cleveland played, they lost 112-100 to the Oklahoma City Thunder. They had trouble scoring, so they’ll need to be more effective in this game if they want to take care of business at home.

Love (back) is doubtful to play on Sunday; he has already missed two games this season because of back pain. That would mean more playing time for Cedi Osman and Dean Wade.

J.B. Bickerstaff, the team’s head coach, revealed on Monday that Windler has yet to play this season due to an ankle injury he suffered during training camp.

  • Donovan Mitchell – Questionable

Mitchell is nursing a groin injury and his status for Sunday’s game against the Clippers is currently unknown.

Due to an injury to his groin, Mitchell has been sidelined for five of the past six games, and he is in danger of missing a third game in a row. Caris LeVert ought to continue taking his place in the starting lineup if he does not return.
