Kawhi undergoes surgery for partially torn ACL

LA Clippers star forward Kawhi Leonard underwent successful surgery to repair a partial tear of the ACL in his right knee, the team announced Tuesday.

In their release, the Clippers said there was no timetable for his return.

Leonard was injured in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Utah Jazz. He missed Los Angeles’ final eight playoff games with what the team called a sprained right knee.

The Clippers rallied from a 2-0 series deficit to beat the Jazz in six games, before being eliminated in six games by the Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference finals.

Leonard has a player option for the 2021-22 season. He averaged 24.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 52 regular-season games this season.
