Kawhi Leonard has knee surgery, may miss part of 2021-22 season

Kawhi Leonard has knee surgery, may miss part of 2021-22 season

Los Angeles Clippers star Kawhi Leonard faces a lengthy injury layoff after undergoing surgery to repair torn knee ligaments, the team said Tuesday.

Leonard missed the final eight games of the Clippers’ playoff campaign after injuring his right knee against the Utah Jazz last month.

The team initially said Leonard had sprained the knee but said in a brief statement on Tuesday he had suffered a partial tear of his right anterior cruciate ligament.

Typically torn cruciate ligaments take several months to recover from, meaning Leonard is likely to miss a substantial part of the 2021-2022 campaign.

The Clippers said no timetable had been set for Leonard’s return.
