As the San Antonio Spurs look to even the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday in Game 2, head coach Gregg Popovich announced All-Star Kawhi Leonard is questionable for Saturday's Game 3 due to his ankle injury.
ESPN's Marc J. Spears passed along Popovich's comments regarding Leonard's status for Game 3.
Leonard originally injured his ankle in Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Houston Rockets. He sat out the Spurs' closing Game 6 win before returning on Sunday.
In the third quarter of Game 1 against the Warriors, Leonard twisted his ankle coming down on Zaza Pachulia after attempting a jump shot. San Antonio was leading 76-55 at the time of Leonard's injury, before losing 113-111.
Popovich was unhappy with Pachulia in comments made on Monday, via ESPN.com's Michael C. Wright: "Having your horses is important...this is crap. Who gives a damn about his intent? Ever heard of manslaughter?"
Leonard scored 26 points and grabbed eight rebounds in 23 minutes for the Spurs in Game 1 against the Warriors.
Game 3 between the Warriors and Spurs will take place on Saturday at 9 p.m. ET.
