A right knee sprain will keep star Kawhi Leonard from playing in the series-tilting Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinals set with the Utah Jazz, his team confirmed on Wednesday.
The Clippers announced no timetable for Leonard's return.
News of Leonard's injury first emerged from Brian Windhorst and Ramona Shelburne, who reported early Wednesday morning that the right knee could keep the All-NBA forward out for the rest of the series.
Leonard appeared to tweak his right knee in a collision on transition with Utah Jazz wing Joe Ingles at the 5:25 mark of the fourth quarter in Monday's Game 4. He limped on his right leg before missing a pair of free throws. Leonard remained in the game, only to sub out of the Clippers' 118-104 victory 50 seconds later.
