Clippers fans reading another Kawhi and/or PG13 injury update AM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
I’m blaming my injury report tardiness on the tryptophan. But yeah, Kawhi, Paul George and Luke Kennard have all been ruled out for Clippers-Nuggets tomorrow. – 11:07 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Kawhi and PG are out for Friday’s game; Ty Lue says no timetable for either…9:11 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers injury report for Black Friday is unchanged from yesterday.
Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Luke Kennard, and the Ontario trio are out vs Nuggets.
Wouldn’t be surprised if the injured Clippers are done until December. – 7:53 PM
Marc Stein @TheSteinLine
The Clippers say Paul George (right hamstring tendon strain) and Kawhi Leonard (right ankle sprain) remain out for Friday’s game against Denver.

Ty Lue says there’s currently no timetable for injured Kawhi and Paul George…12:23 AM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
The Clippers are trailing 32-29 in San Francisco, their 5 turnovers keeping them from possibly having a lead despite playing without Kennard, Kawhi and PG. – 10:39 PM
Malika Andrews @malika_andrews
Reporting on Paul George and Kawhi Leonard’s injuries. Both players had treatment in Los Angeles today. Leonard will be re-evaluated in the coming days, putting his availability for Friday’s game in question. More from our @NBA on ESPN broadcast: PM

CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
No Kawhi Leonard or Paul George tonight for the Clippers. Traditional starters for Golden State. PM

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Ty Lue says Kawhi is OK but that there was some soreness the day after he rolled the ankle and there’s no timetable currently on Kawhi’s ankle injury. He said the same as far as no timetable for Paul George and Luke Kennard. – 8:29 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Ty Lue says Kawhi Leonard woke up with soreness yesterday so he’s being held out. No timetable offered for his return, nor for the returns of PG or Luke Kennard. – 8:29 PM
Dalton Johnson @DaltonJ_Johnson
Tonight was supposed to be a date that was circled by anyone who gave a damn about basketball.
Instead, it’s an 8-10 Warriors team vs. the Clippers without Kawi and Paul George…2:31 PM

If you thought Paul George’s absence meant a flood of buckets from Kawhi Leonard, then you thought wrong.
Since Leonard returned, he has a 13:1 assist to turnover ratio. Foes have found it hard to score. And the Clippers’ offense is 📈…1:02 PM
David Locke @DLocke09
Reggie Jackson and Norman Powell relish role without Paul George AM

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard on adjusting without Paul George: “No adjustments. If he’s over there or not, I have to play the same basketball game. Same focus. Play as hard as I can when he’s on and off the floor.” – 2:53 AM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Kawhi Leonard on Clippers adjusting w/out Paul George in win vs Jazz:”Next man up. We have a talented bench & guys are ready to play. They want to win a basketball game. We have some familiar faces around here that had a deep playoff run. That competitive nature is in everyone.” – 2:49 AM
Ralph Lawler @Ohmeomy
Impressive Win for Clippers over Jazz.
Maybe best win of the young season.
Certainly, Jazz are best team they’ve beaten. And that was w/o Paul George tonight. – 12:59 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Paul George is sitting next to John Wall on bench – 12:32 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Ty Lue says that now is not the time to increase Kawhi Leonard’s workload, even with Paul George out indefinitely – 8:52 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Clippers coach Ty Lue listed Paul George as day-to-day and said he’s doing “okay” with his injury. Ty held out hope that PG’s injury isn’t long-term. – 8:51 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Ty Lue says Paul George is “alright.” He says George is feeling OK. Asked if this is a long-term thing, Lue said the Clippers hope not. He said Clippers want to be cautious with George. – 8:51 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Terance Mann will start in place of Paul George tonight against Utah. – 8:51 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Before tipoff of Clippers-Jazz, Ty Lue says that Paul George (out with right hamstring) is “all right” and that the team considers him day to day.
“He feels OK, just making sure we’re doing the right thing,” Lue said. – 8:50 PM

More on this storyline

Law Murray: George’s hamstring strain is expected to be evaluated in the next couple of days, source tells @TheAthletic. Would seem doubtful for Golden State on Wednesday. The injury is not believed to be a case of wear and tear, but rather a hyperextension from Saturday. -via Twitter @LawMurrayTheNU / November 21, 2022
