Kawhi Leonard, the star player of the Los Angeles Clippers, has reportedly been diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his right knee, according to a report from The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The diagnosis comes after the Clippers were eliminated from the playoffs, with Leonard missing the final three games of the first-round series.

Leonard's Injury History

Leonard, who led the team in a Game 1 win over the Phoenix Suns with 38 points, scored 31 points in a Game 2 defeat before being sidelined for the rest of the series.

The injury is not the first for Leonard, as he tore his ACL in the same knee during the 2021 playoffs and missed the entire 2021-22 season.

During the 2022-23 regular season, Leonard played 50 games and averaged 23.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game.

Recovery and Future Plans

Along with Leonard, the Clippers were also without Paul George during their brief playoff run.

George suffered a knee sprain on March 21 and did not play for the remainder of the season.

If the Clippers had advanced, George reportedly could have returned later in the postseason.

Now, both players have a full offseason to recover from their respective knee injuries.
