Still under the threat of elimination on the eve of Game 6, the Clippers will obviously want to come there with the maximum of life force. This is good, since the status of Kawhi Leonard has just been changed by the franchise, and lets consider beautiful things.
It will soon be two weeks since he was seen in matchwear. A priori short period of time, but which is devilishly long in the eyes of the Clippers. Hit during Game 4 against Utah, Kawhi Leonard has not officially walked on a floor since. It is therefore without him that Tyronn Lue’s men try to fight against the Suns.
Led 3-1, the latter offered themselves a reprieve on Monday, thanks to a historic Paul George. The stakes will nevertheless remain the same in Game 6 on Wednesday. In case of defeat, their season will come to an end, and will inevitably give way to disappointment. They could, however, benefit from welcome help, as journalist Justin Russo points out.

According to CBS Sports, Kawhi Leonard is in “game-time decision” for Game 6. I’m not sure what terms were used in previous matches, though.
In other words, The Klaw would be sufficiently recovered from his injury to test himself a few minutes from the jump, and try to participate in the meeting. Another Internet user rightly recalls that the terminology used by the Clips was indeed different until now.

Announced out at least until June 30 a few days ago, the Fun Guy could well find the competition today. LA and its fans certainly won’t spit on this news as the team prepares to play one of, if not the most important game in its 50-year history.
For the first time in the series, the Clippers could therefore show up at Staples Center with a Kawhi Leonard available. The Suns can tremble.
