Raptors head coach Nick Nurse expects Kawhi Leonard to return to the lineup Wednesday against the Kings as the team closes out a four-game Western road trip.
“He was really close, it was right up to game time the other night,” Nurse explained. “We’re hoping he’ll be back tomorrow and play the game.” The Raptors are 10-1 overall and 7-0 with Leonard in the lineup this season. Kawhi has averaged 34 minutes on the court in those contests while scoring a team-high 26.1 points to go with 7.6 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game and owners can only complain for the occasional rest day he will be getting throughout the season.
