Ckippers head coach Doc Rivers doesn't expect Kawhi Leonard (rest) to play Sunday's preseaosn game against Melbourne.
The on again, off again resting schedule with Kawhi during the preseason is not much of a surprise. Leonard has said all of the right things about his committment to playing more and resting less this season, but until we see it it's hard to take those comments at face value. One encouraging spot for those considering Leonard in the first round is the news that Paul George (shoulder) will be sidelined for the first 10 games of the season, increasing the need for Leonard to be out there with his new team.
