Game notes have Kawhi Leonard resting against the Suns on Thursday since this is the second game of the back-to-back.
It appears that Kawhi Leonard hasn't exactly been cleared yet to play in a back-to-back. After dropping a vintage game, albeit, on a losing effort against the tough and gritty Celtics, he would have to serve his mandatory load management. The Raptors will be facing the lowly Suns so this is just precautionary for Toronto to keep their star fresh. Kawhi is still a first-round talent even with all these restrictions on him.
