PLAYA VISTA, Calif. – After missing the previous three games, LA Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard will play in his first game with Paul George against the Boston Celtics at Wednesday, Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said.
Leonard has not played since November 13 against the Houston Rockets because of a left knee contusion he suffered in that loss. George debuted his Clippers on Thursday in New Orleans and he has played three games without Leonard.
Leonard was seen after tomorrow's shooting getting shot up. Teammate Ivica Zubac said he couldn't wait to play in the Clippers' first match with the two All-Stars in the starting lineup.
"Yes, at last," Zubac said when asked what it will be like when Leonard and George play together. "It will be good. We are really good with just Kawhi [playing and George out]. We are really good with just PG [and Leonard out]. So you know that when you put the two together it has to be good.
" So we I'll see it tonight, but I'm really excited. "
Leonard has played in nine games this season and is averaging 26.8 points, 8.9 rebounds and 6.0 assists.
