Nope Kawhi is a WARRIOR and he would play if he could!
Pop said at the interview that Leonard had been playing with such injury for some time. Finally it flared up real bad and started to hurt so badly that Leonard told the coaches so they HAD to get him off the court to rest it up.
Sean Elliott said at the game that long REST should heal it up.
So I guess in 2 weeks or so we could get Kawhi back if he followed their advice and rested it well..
“I asked them if it wasn't too much trouble, if I wasn't being too pushy, if they could execute what we were trying to do. And if it didn't make them too angry, if they also wanted to play some defense on the other end, that would be great.”
