Ohm Youngmisuk has covered the Giants, Jets and the National Football League since 2006. The Clippers play at the Houston Rockets and New Orleans Pelicans in the pair of road back-to-backs.

On Wednesday, the league said it accepted the Clippers plan to sit Leonard, who was listed on the injury report with an ailing knee, in the first of back-to-back games. Leonard is expected to play in that game. "The league office, in consultation with the NBA's director of sports medicine, is comfortable with team medical staff's determination that Leonard is not sufficiently healthy to play in back-to-back games at this time".

While leading the Bucks to a 3-1 record, Antetokounmpo averaged 25.3 points, 13.3 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steal per game while shooting 57.8% from the field.

Also as expected their superstar, Kawhi Leonard, one the best all-around basketball players in the world is already putting up MVP like numbers, just like he did in a year ago. Clay feels strongly that this can't happen for nationally televised games and that the league or TV networks should step in.

"I think Kawhi made the statement he's never felt better", Rivers added. Rivers, in his comments to Clutch Points, cited Leonard's minutes in the playoffs for Toronto as a reason for the Clippers being cautious with him early this season. And it's not a health thing. "We want him to just keep feeling better and getting better".
