Leonard has been dealing with stiffness in his right knee and has missed all but two games this season. Before this update, he had been listed as “out” due to right knee injury management.
In Leonard’s two regular-season appearances — against the Los Angeles Lakers on Oct. 20 and the Phoenix Suns on Oct. 23 — he came off the bench and played 21 minutes. Before that, he started preseason games against the Portland Trail Blazers on Oct. 3 and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Oct. 9.
