Clippers' Kawhi Leonard out for Game 2 vs. Suns with knee injury

Los Angeles Clippers coach Tyronn Lue delivered expected news on Monday. 

Per Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN, Clippers star Kawhi Leonard will miss Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals against the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night as he works to recover from the knee injury that has sidelined him for the past three contests. Lue added that Leonard has "remained engaged" throughout the past week despite his absences: 

Reports surfaced over the weekend that Leonard would not travel to Phoenix for the first two games of the series so he could continue rehabbing what is believed to be an ACL injury. It's unknown if he'll be available for Game 3 Thursday night or at all for the rest of the playoffs. 

The Suns defeated the Clippers 120-114 in Sunday's series opener.
