Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard sat out the final 4:35 of Los Angeles’ 118-104 victory over the Utah Jazz on Monday with an apparent right knee injury.

Leonard grabbed for the knee after bumping into Utah’s Joe Ingles, and he departed less than a minute later.

A short time later, Leonard spoke to a trainer and then put on his mask and watched the remainder of the game from the bench.

After the game, a TNT reporter asked Leonard if he was concerned.

“No, I’ll be good,” Leonard said.

Leonard finished with 31 points and seven rebounds as the Clippers tied the best-of-seven Western Conference semifinal series at two games apiece.
