Kawhi Leonard's Injuries Could Be Worse Than Expected

The Spurs' star appears to be dealing with some knee problems, too.

Kawhi Leonard isn't playing tonight.

The San Antonio Spurs star will miss Game 6 of his team's series against the Houston Rockets with an ankle injury he suffered in Game 5 that forced him to miss the entire overtime.

It seems like Leonard might be dealing with more than an ankle injury, too.

He's been using a heating pad on his right knee while on the bench in recent games, according to Kevin Ding.

Leonard could have played tonight, and he says he's definitely playing in Game 7, but he might be playing through more pain than we thought.
