Andre Iguodala’s MRI revealed no structural damage.

Ditto Kawhi Leonard’s.

Michael C. Wright of ESPN:


“Doubtful” is an improvement on what Gregg Popovich said yesterday, and sometimes, that late upgrade is really a telltale sign the player will play. I don’t think that’s the case here.

A lack of structural damage doesn’t mean Leonard is suddenly healthy – or even that he’ll return to full strength this series.

But, given how well San Antonio fared with Leonard in Game 1, this at least leaves the door open for a competitive series.
