An MRI performed Thursday on Kawhi Leonard’s sore right hand revealed nothing more than a bruise, and the Spurs’ small forward could be cleared to play Friday night against the Los Angeles Lakers. Leonard suffered the injury in a spill late in Tuesday’s loss at Utah. He was held out of the Spurs’ 109-95 victory over the New York Knicks a night later as a precaution. Leonard’s availability Friday will likely be determined by his pain tolerance, per a source with knowledge of his test results. San Antonio Express-News
