The Western Conference Finals is missing a pair of All-Stars from both the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Clippers with Chris Paul being in the NBA's COVID-19 protocols, and Kawhi Leonard dealing with a sprained knee in which the seriousness has yet to be fully disclosed.
"I think right now there's confidence that the Suns are going to get Chris Paul back in the series," said Adrian Wojnarowski on NBA Countdown before Game 2. "That confidence of Kawhi Leonard being back is not there right now in L.A."
Leonard suffered his knee injury during Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals.
Paul is not believed to be symptomatic with his case of COVID-19.
