• Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Kawhi Leonard (rest) is being listed as out against the Bucks on Wednesday, but is expected to play against the Blazers on Thursday.

    Load management is real. The Fun Guy was having too much fun dominating in six of the Clippers' first seven games, so Doc will have him take a seat. This will be Kawhi's second game resting in order to manage his load. Patrick Beverley, Landry Shamet, Moe Harkless and Patrick Patterson stand to benefit with plenty of usage to go around. Kawhi is expected to return on Thursday, so it will be a one-game absence. Owners will have to expect him to rest every few games as the season goes on.
