Kawhi Leonard (rest) will sit out Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz and play on Thursday against the Spurs.
Leonard's first load management day is here, so the NBA season is now officially underway. Doc Rivers said there's no set rule about Leonard's activity on back-to-backs, so we could still see Kawhi play on consecutive days down the line. So far the hope has been that the Clippers' management of Kawhi's minutes in-game would be enough to limit his full nights off, but we won't know that until the end of the season. This is going to mean more minutes and shots for just about everyone on the Clippers, with Moe Harkless, Landry Shamet, Patrick Beverley and Patrick Patterson among the most obvious beneficiaries.
