The Los Angeles Clippers are sitting out both their superstar tandem in Kawhi Leonard and Paul George for the opener of their 2023 preseason as provided by head coach Ty Lue.

Lue also confirmed that both their ball handling veterans John Wall and Reggie Jackson will be out.

As they are maintaining the availability of their main cogs to continue that title hunt, the decision to shelve both Leonard and George only serves as a safeguard move for the Clippers in the long run.

The Clippers will commence their preseason warm ups against the Israel-based club Maccabi Ra’anana in Seattle this Friday.
