The Los Angeles Clippers are facing elimination after going down 1-3 in the Western Conference finals series against the Phoenix Suns. They will not have their best player for Game 5 which could be the final games of the series.

According to Marc Stein, Kawhi Leonard will be out for Game 5 due to right knee sprain. The two-time NBA champion has been sidelined since Game 4 of the second round series against the Utah Jazz. Serge Ibaka will also miss the game due to a back surgery. He is out for the playoffs.
