Ty on this year’s Clips, minus Kawhi and PG “The biggest thing, with Kawhi being out all year and PG, not knowing what’s gonna happen with PG … we know Kawhi’s probably not gonna come back, we don’t know the status of PG and we know these guys are gonna compete every night.” – 12:53 AM

More on this storyline

“We know Kawhi’s probably not gonna come back,” Lue said in the middle of answering a question about how much he has enjoyed coaching this group that has fought without the team’s two franchise stars. “We don’t know the status of PG, but these guys continue to keep fighting. Every single night.” -via ESPN / February 4, 2022

Ohm Youngmisuk: Serge Ibaka says he has seen how hard Kawhi Leonard is working, rehabbing and trying to come back strong: “I know he wants to come back, it’s just a question about time.” -via Twitter @NotoriousOHM / February 4, 2022

Adrian Wojnarowski: Paul George has been out since Christmas, with a torn ligament in his right elbow, and the team wanted to give it three or four weeks to see how it healed. Well, they’ve extended that. And I’m told they’re going to give it a few more weeks to see how that elbow heals. Listen, they certainly want to avoid perhaps having a procedure on it. This Clipper season’s in a little bit of limbo until they see how that plays out for Paul George and of course Kawhi Leonard, who’s rehabbing that ACL injury. That’s not going to be determined for months. -via YouTube / January 20, 2022
