๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘‘Leonard, who has been ruled out for Game 5 of the Clippers' Western Conference semifinal series with the Utah Jazz on Wednesday, will be the eighth All-Star to miss a playoff game this year, which is the most in league history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.The Phoenix Suns' Chris Paul, who could miss the start of the Western Conference finals while he is in the league's health and safety protocols, could become the ninth, joining James' teammate, Anthony Davis; James Harden and Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets; Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley of the Jazz; Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics; Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers; and Leonard.While James played all six games of the Lakers' first-round loss to Phoenix, he did so on a right ankle that still hadn't fully healed from a sprain suffered in mid-March that caused him to miss 26 of L.A.'s final 30 regular-season games.The Lakers were eliminated by the Suns nearly two weeks ago, but within the past few days, James shared an Instagram video showing him receiving continued treatment on his ankle.From the very beginning of training camp in December, James let it be known that he was taken aback by how quickly the league transitioned from the NBA bubble in Orlando, Florida, to a condensed 72-game regular-season schedule as the COVID-19 pandemic persisted."I was like, 'Wow.' And I said, 'Oh, s---,'" James said on Dec. 7 when asked about his reaction to the quick turnaround.
