Kawhi Leonard Ruled out for Wizards vs. Raptors with Knee Injury

Per ESPN, it’s not clear when the 27-year-old suffered the injury or what his recovery timetable is expected to be.
Leonard played 34 minutes against the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night, dropping 30 points and eight assists in a 127-125 victory.
The Raptors have been careful not to overwork Leonard after he appeared in just nine games last season. He’s routinely been held out of the second game of back-to-backs.
It’s a testament to Toronto’s depth and head coach Nick Nurse’s ability to maximize his talent that the team hasn’t skipped a beat without its best player. The reigning Atlantic Division champions (42-16) are currently tied for the most wins in the NBA, although they trail the Milwaukee Bucks (42-14) by one game for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
