Kawhi Leonard found it "shocking" the NBA detailed his injury when announcing a fine against the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Clippers were fined $50,000 due to statements from the team and Doc Rivers that "were inconsistent" with Leonard's health.
The NBA also said "Leonard is suffering from an ongoing injury to the patella tendon in his left knee and has been placed by the team at this time on an injury protocol for back-to-back games."
Leonard has twice sat out the first night of back-to-back games this season.
"I mean it was shocking, but it doesn't matter to me," Leonard said when asked what he thought about the NBA revealing details about his injury. "I'm not a guy that reads the media anyway. We're going to manage it the best way we can to keep me healthy and that's the most important thing, me being healthy moving forward."
