Doc Rivers is certain that Kawhi Leonard will be in ‘phenomenal’ shape if there is a postseason.

The head coach of the Los Angeles Clippers is confident his top stars, Leonard and Paul George, will be 100% ready when the NBA returns to action.

“I know Kawhi’s overworking. I can guarantee you that. And the difference is, during the summer, Kawhi couldn’t work, you know, so now he’s got this break and he’s able to train.

The Kawhi we’ll see will be in phenomenal shape. PG [Paul George] is another guy that’s gonna be in phenomenal shape,” Rivers said on a video call with reporters on Wednesday, via Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.
