Leonard says nail on floor cut his knee open
With 1:31 left in the Spurs win in Philadelphia Sunday, Kawhi Leonard had to leave the game after going to the floor and coming up with something wrong with his knee that was of concern.

What is more interesting is his explanation, via the San Antonio Express News Spurs blog.
“I just hit the hardwood on one of those nails, really hard,” said Leonard, who made two of the biggest plays of the period for the Spurs. “It busted my knee wide open.
“It kind of felt funny when I tried to explode up the court when we got the ball and I tried to cut to the basket, so I had to come out and see what was wrong before I injured it worse.”
NBA courts are not held together by nails pretty much for this reason, so if there was a nail how did it get there? Leonard’s knee no doubt hit something, what exactly remains unclear.

He is not expected to miss any time, but it is an odd injury.

There are nails at the center of the free throw line. Every hardwood basketball court I have ever played on has them. In fact, tt is the first thing I say to find for anyone I teach to shoot free throws. Usually the nail is covered by a thick layer of lacquer and paint so I've never thought it could come up. I wonder if it is possible that was the nail.
