After suffering an ankle injury in the third quarter in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard will miss game 2 tomorrow night.

Popovich said today that his superstar will not be available to play. The injury came when Leonard attempted a fadeaway jump shot and was being closed out by Warriors center ZAZA Pachulia. As Pachulia contested, he gave Leonard no room to land, resulting in the ankle injury.
