NBA Injury News
Ivica Zubac is still listed as questionable heading into Game 6 on Wednesday. He was held out of the previous game due to a sprained MCL. Kawhi Leonard remains out as he continues to recover from a sprained knee and there is no word on if he is close to a return.
With Leonard and Zubac out on Monday, Terance Mann and Marcus Morris entered the starting lineup. Paul George once again led the team in usage rate, scoring 41 points in 41 minutes.
Morris and Reggie Jackson combined for 30 field goal attempts, and both players will continue to see increased roles in addition to George.
