Is Kawhi Leonard playing tonight? TV channel, live streams, time for Clippers vs. Nuggets


After snapping a six-game losing streak on Tuesday, the Clippers look to stay in the win column as they welcome the Nuggets to Los Angeles on Friday.

As you might expect, star forward Kawhi Leonard had a huge hand in LA getting back on track earlier in the week. In a win over Dallas, Leonard scored a season-high 33 points on 9-of-12 shooting from the field and a perfect 12-of-12 from the free throw line, rounding out his stat line with nine rebounds, four assists and four steals.

The two-time Finals MVP is getting his legs back under him at the right time, especially given that the next challenge sees his team take on two-time league MVP Nikola Jokic for the second time in as many weeks.

When the two teams met last week, the Nuggets routed the Clippers in a game where neither Leonard nor Paul George played in the second half. This time around, a full game from Leonard could change the outcome.

Will Leonard be in action on Friday night? Here’s the latest on his status against Denver.
