Kawhi Leonard talks about ankle injury, questionable for Spurs-Warriors Game 3

Leonard says he will play if he feels good


SAN ANTONIO – The Spurs have listed forward Kawhi Leonard as questionable for Saturday’s Game 3 against the Warriors at the AT&T Center.  

Leonard spoke to the media on Friday and talked about his ankle. He said he’s been at practice and getting treatment.

“It’s getting better, day-to-day,” Leonard said.

Leonard was asked what input he would have on whether he would play Saturday despite being injured.

“A lot of input, if I feel good then I am going to play,” Leonard said.  

Friday was the first time Leonard had spoken to the media since he re-injured his ankle in Game 1.

He was also asked whether his opinion had changed on the play by Warriors center Zaza Pachulia, in which Pachulia put his foot under his ankle.

Leonard said after Game 1 he did not believe the play was intentional. 

“Nah, I’m just focused on getting healthy and getting ready to play in Game 3. I’m not worried about that,” Leonard said.

The Spurs have been outscored by the Warriors by 61 points since Leonard left Game 1 with the ankle injury. They are down 0-2 in the West finals.

Game 3 of the Spurs-Warriors series tips-off at 8 p.m. Saturday.
