LA Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his right knee, sources confirmed to ESPN on Wednesday.

Leonard did not play in the Clippers’ final three games of their first-round series against the Phoenix Suns due to the injury. The Clippers, who lost four straight after opening the series with a Game 1 win, had said Leonard had a right knee sprain.

Leonard had played through the injury in Game 2 before being ruled out for Games 3-5. The Clippers were eliminated with a 136-130 loss Tuesday.

The injury was compounded by the loss of Paul George, who has not played since March 21 because of a right knee sprain.

The Athletic first reported on Leonard’s injury.
