The pandemic caused a change in sports including the NBA which has affected players.

The Lakers became the NBA Champion at the fall of 2020, but the quick start of the fall/winter season was balked at by Lebron James who believed players needed more time to rest before embarking on a new season.

Some people speculate that the lack of off-time by the NBA may have led to Lebron James and the defending Lakers to be ousted in the first round. Lebron was against the new season immediacy due to have a routine of certain months after training and playing a full season.

It’s being reported by SportsNet, that LA Clippers star Kawhi Leonard will miss Wednesday’s Game 5 against the Utah Jazz with a right knee injury and could be out the remainder of the series.

The Clippers announced Wednesday that Leonard suffered a right knee sprain in their Game 4 victory and there is “no timetable for his return.”

Lebron James sent prayers to his fellow LA playing NBA star and made a statement about the business side not taking athletes health into consideration with this playoff season.

After the game, Leonard clearly did not want to talk about his knee.

“I’m good,” Leonard said. “Next question.”

He informed his teammates late Tuesday that he’d be out for Wednesday, sources said.

Leonard suffered a quad tendon injury in his right knee in 2017 but more recently has dealt with issues in his left knee.
