The NBA believes Kawhi Leonard is resting in back-to-back games is justified.
Leonard is sitting out Wednesday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks, which will air on ESPN. Leonard similarly sat out a national television game last week as it was part of a back-to-back.
"Kawhi Leonard is not a healthy player under the league's resting policy, and, as such, is listed as managing a knee injury in the LA Clippers injury report," wrote Mike Bass in a statement. "The league office, in consultation with the NBA's director of sports medicine is comfortable with the team medical staff's determination that Leonard is not sufficiently healthy to play in back-to-back games at this time."
Adrian Wojnarowski reports Leonard isn't planning to play in any back-to-back games in the near future.
