Clippers fined $50,000 for comments made by Doc Rivers on load management

Charlotte Hornets v Los Angeles Clippers

Ohm Youngmisuk has covered the Giants, Jets and the National Football League since 2006.

Leonard did not play October 30 against Utah, in a game broadcast on ESPN, and misseds the ESPN matchup against Milwaukee on Wednesday at Staples Center.

A difference in opinion between National Basketball Association officials and coach Doc Rivers led the league to fine the Clippers $50,000 on Thursday for statements it believes are "inconsistent" with superstar forward Kawhi Leonard's health status. The staff has fairly identified that Leonard is suffering from an ongoing injury to the patella tendon in his still left knee and has been placed by the staff at this time on an injury protocol for back-to-back games. Leonard is expected to play in that game.

Leonard played in just nine games for the Spurs in 2017-18 due to a quadriceps injury and played in just 60 of 82 regular-season games for the Toronto Raptors last season. He's averaging almost 30 points per game, 7.6 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game.

Liverpool fans react to Naby Keita display vs Genk
Napoli was held to a 1-1 draw by Salzburg in the group's other game. Oxlade-Chamberlain restored Liverpool's lead in the 53rd minute. A goal for either team before half-time would swing the game.

Last week, Leonard sat out at Utah in the first of a back-to-back set of games before doing the same against Milwaukee on Wednesday. Leonard returned to play October 31, in a victory against San Antonio, just as he is expected to play Thursday against Portland. Clay feels strongly that this can't happen for nationally televised games and that the league or TV networks should step in. There's no concern here.

"I think Kawhi made a statement that he's never felt better", Rivers said before Wednesday's loss at Staples Center. Last season's roster thrived by dominating bench minutes, but that hasn't been the case so far this year.

"... So, it's not a health thing, really. We want him to just keep feeling better and getting better".
