Raptors coach Nick Nurse expects a better game from Kawhi Leonard on Sunday

Raptors coach Nick Nurse expects a better game from Kawhi Leonard on Sunday TORONTO — The Toronto Raptors beat defending champion Golden State in Game 1 despite an off night for superstar Kawhi Leonard. The Warriors threw the kitchen sink of defence at Leonard, who shot just 5-for-14 for 23 points in the Raptors' 118-109 victory. Raptors coach Nick Nurse expects a different game from his star in Game 2 on Sunday. "I'm expecting him to play a lot better tomorrow," Nurse said. Leonard, who missed all but nine games last season with San Antonio because of a quadriceps injury, appeared to be limping at times during Game 1.

Leonard has been hobbled at times with an apparent leg injury, though the Raptors have steadfastly refused to go into detail and say that Leonard is fine. Green , however, suggested that the star forward has been playing through some sort of knee injury en route to the NBA Finals. Listing off team injuries

Toronto Raptors guard Danny Green may have accidentally revealed the type of injury Kawhi Leonard has been battling during the playoffs.

Leonard has been hobbled at times with an apparent leg injury, though the Raptors have steadfastly refused to go into detail and say that Leonard is fine. Green, however, suggested that the star forward has been playing through some sort of knee injury en route to the NBA Finals.

Leonard was spotted limping a few times during the Eastern Conference Finals, though given how dominant he was, it didn’t seem to significantly impact his play. There’s no reason to believe anything will change significantly for the NBA Finals.
