Paul, 36, stays from the NBA's wellbeing and security protocols after allegedly testing positive for COVID-19. Paul, who based on multiple accounts was vaccinated, demands two negative COVID evaluations at least 24 hours apart to be rid of a recurrence.
Leonard hasn't played since Game 4 of their next round due to a knee injury, which the Clippers allegedly fear is a ACL problem . He did not travel with the group to Phoenix.
"Due to this climate we live in, things change from day to day," Suns head coach Monty Williams told reporters Saturday about Paul. "I have attempted to take things one day at a time... but for me personally, depending on the advice and depending on the background of this particular protocol, what's daily. And so that is the way I must approach it. I wish I could tell you a time you guys would not need to ask me all the time, but now I can not. It is pretty much daily."
The remainder from the sweep provides a silver lining for the Suns, who haven't played since last Sunday. The Clippers completed off that their six-game win on the Jazz on Friday.
Clippers trainer Tyronn Lue said he is"not sure" about Leonard's standing for Sport 2. Leonard, 29, averaged 30.4 points and 7.7 rebounds on the first 11 matches of the playoffs.
