The league office, in its statement on Thursday night, reiterated that the Clippers’ decision to “sit Leonard for management of an injury was consistent with league rules.”

The Clippers have insisted for weeks that they intend to follow the plan enacted by the Toronto Raptors last season — which has become known in N.B.A. parlance as “load management” — which restricted Leonard to playing in just one of two games in every back-to-back situation when he was healthy.

In his only season in Toronto, Leonard appeared in only 60 of 82 games. Capitalizing on his freshness, he led the Raptors to the franchise’s first championship and was named the most valuable player of the N.B.A. finals for the second time in his career.
