LOS ANGELES (AP) — Toronto’s Kawhi Leonard won’t play against the Los Angeles Clippers because of a bruised right hip.

Raptors coach Nick Nurse announced the injury shortly before Tuesday night’s (Wednesday, PHL time) game at Staples Center.

He says Leonard got hurt in a loss against Milwaukee on Sunday (Monday, PHL time) and the forward is listed as day-to-day.

“He did go through shootaround,” Nurse said. “We were hoping he would pass the test and go, but it was a little too sore.”

Leonard is averaging 26.1 points and 8.3 rebounds for the Raptors, whose 21-7 record leads the NBA.

Toronto came into Tuesday’s (Wednesday, PHL time) game having lost three of four. The Raptors move on to face Golden State on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time).
