Clippers' Kawhi Leonard will not play Wednesday vs. Bucks

As his load management continues, Kawhi Leonard will not play tonight vs. the Bucks (10 ET, ESPN), the first of back-to-back games for the Clippers.

The NBA is aware of Leonard being sidelined — per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski — and has no issue with his absence from the court since the small forward has been managing a knee injury.

Leonard, who is averaging 29.3 points, 7.3 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game in 30.5 minutes, has played in six of the Clippers’ seven games this season.

The Clippers are riding a two-game winning streak heading into Wednesday night’s game with the Bucks, who are on a three-game roll.

Leonard is likely to play Thursday night at home against the Portland Trail Blazers (10:30 ET, TNT).
