Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said that Kawhi Leonard “jammed his foot” late in the game on Friday. He said that the injury happened in the fourth quarter.

At this time, it is not clear how severe — if at all — this injury is. The Raptors do not seem like they’re concerned about it.

Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said that Kawhi Leonard “jammed his foot” late in the game on Friday. He said that the injury happened in the fourth quarter.

After suffering the injury, Leonard was immediately asked out of the lineup. He may receive some rest with the Raptors having a scheduled back-to-back with the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday at the Staples Center and then on Monday against the Utah Jazz at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.

He could miss at least one or possible both of those games.

Leonard — who was acquired in a blockbuster deal with the San Antonio Spurs — is averaging 27.3 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 2.0 steals, and 0.5 blocks per game in six games.

“I think it’s going to be all right, nothing major. I just pushed off on it and kind of rolled it and I wanted to get it looked at,” Kawhi said via Doug Smith or the Toronto Star.

Leonard is expected to be re-evaluated on Saturday.
