Kawhi Leonard, Tobias Harris both questionable for tomorrow night’s Clippers-Sixers game
This latest stretch for the Philadelphia 76ers was set to be full of stars, but that no longer seems to be the case. After Brooklyn rested almost their entire roster last night, the Los Angeles Clippers could be without some significant firepower tomorrow night. The Clippers have listed star forward Kawhi Leonard as questionable with a sore right foot. Alongside Leonard, LA will be without Patrick Beverley and Serge Ibaka.
The Sixers will be missing their key players too. Tobias Harris is questionable with right knee soreness and Dwight Howard, who was out against Brooklyn, remains questionable with left knee soreness. Philly desperately missed Dwight last night, having no other big man behind Joel Embiid to provide defense under the basket. It isn’t clear yet if Anthony Tolliver will make his debut on Friday and George Hill likely remains out as well.
When the Clippers and Sixers faced off at the end of March, Philly was without Joel Embiid due to his knee injury at the time. Philly ended up losing 122-112 on the road without Joel’s presence. Hopefully, Kawhi and Tobi will play, and basketball fans won’t be subjected to another game that failed to meet the high expectations once perceived. Tip-off is set for 7:00 tomorrow and will be on ESPN.
