Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry high fives forward Kevin Durant after a basket against the San Antonio Spurs during the second quarter in Game 2 of the Western conference finals of the NBA Playoffs at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California on May 16, 2017.

Speaking to reporters on Friday, Leonard said, regarding his availability, "it's just questionable".

"Somebody's got to teach him if the California Highway Patrol tells you to move, you move over, " Popovich said.

After Game 1, Leonard said he was in extreme pain after re-injuring the ankle.

Leonard was asked what input he would have on whether he would play Saturday despite being injured. Leonard leaving in the third stanza of Game 1 has defined this series thus far. Leonard injured his ankle after Pachulia came underneath him on a close-out (video here).

It's hard to make a Game 3 prediction without knowing if Kawhi Leonard is going to play.

"Nah, I'm just focused on getting healthy and getting ready to play in Game 3".

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Leonard's long-term health is "always a factor" in making a final decision on whether he will play.

Leonard admitted the ankle is "still not ready" for action but predicted he "could be feeling way better" on Saturday before Game 3. Get email alerts from KSAT12 today. We're eight games away from our ultimate goal. "Just a mental mindset of going out there and just preparing myself to win the game, really". "Kawhi being gone, I don't think as I watched". Vasquez, who runs a business called What's on Second, Inc., claims Leonard's injury has had a major impact on the fans, season ticket holders and those whose businesses are connected to the success of the Spurs. You can't sugarcoat it or say 'if we had just made a couple shots we'd have been right there.

"I think he's got a major responsibility in Game 3 to come out and get something done, whether it's for himself or teammates", Popovich said.

The All-NBA First-Team selection also acknowledged Friday that he still isn't certain whether he'll be able to go in Game 3: "I'm not sure, I mean, it's still not read". Both Kerr and Brown emphasized a better start on both ends in Game 2 to control the tempo from the opening tip.

The only thing that would make me happy is if the San Antonio Spurs file a lawsuit against the fan and the attorney filing said lawsuit for ignorance, stupidity and embarrassment to the organization and all sports fans everywhere.
