In Game 1, Leonard landed on the foot of Warriors center Zaza Pachulia was exited the game with 7:54 remaining in the third quarter. The Spurs led 76–55 before the Warriors came back to win the game. He originally suffered injured after Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals.
Jonathon Simmons is expected to start in Leonard's absence.
Zaza Pachulia (right heel) and Kevon Looney (left hip strain) are out for the Warriors in Game 3. Andre Iguodala (left knee soreness) is listed as probable.
The Warriors lead the series 2–0.
