Leonard sits with bruised hip as Raptors rout Warriors
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) --- Kawhi Leonard sat out Toronto's showdown against the
Golden State Warriors because of a bruised right hip.
The star forward was inactive for the second straight game Wednesday night, but
the Raptors cruised to a 113-93 win at Golden State.
Earlier in the day, Leonard was deemed questionable while getting treatment on
his hip. Toronto coach Nick Nurse spoke to reporters 90 minutes before tip-off
and said he was uncertain about Leonard's status.
The Raptors improved their NBA-best record to 23-7. They beat the Los Angeles
Clippers 123-99 without Leonard on Tuesday night and then completed a season
sweep of the two-time defending champion Warriors.
Toronto beat Golden State 131-128 in overtime on Nov. 29. The Warriors played
that game without All-Stars Stephen Curry and Draymond Green, both of whom were
back in the lineup for the rematch Wednesday.
