Persistent injuries have been a pressing issue for the Clippers, affecting crucial matches and player availability. Consequently, the management is prioritizing the players’ overall health more than ever before. Kawhi Leonard’s meniscus tear in the same knee where he previously suffered a ligament tear poses a significant challenge. Additionally, Paul George sat out the final four games of the previous season. Keeping these injury-prone stars in top form has been a considerable task for the team.

In a recent update via X (formerly Twitter), Tomer Azarly provides insight into the Clippers’ injury status ahead of their season opener against the Trail Blazers. Regrettably, Terance Mann is expected to be absent for the opener.

Much to the fans’ surprise, both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are starting the opening game, marking the first time since 2020. The dynamic duo of Kawhi and Paul brings immense joy to the fans. Their camaraderie extends beyond the court, as evident in a recent video of them engaging in a friendly golf competition. If they can maintain their fitness throughout the season, the Clippers will be strong contenders for the title.

Filling the Void Left by Mann Terance Mann, who averaged 8.8 points per game last season, will play a pivotal role this season as well. The absence of this shooting guard will undoubtedly be felt in the season opener. According to Coach Tyronn Lue, the 6’5″ youngster sprained his ankle while landing on a teammate during a practice session.

In a recent interview, Kawhi mentioned that this year’s Clippers training camp was superior to the previous one. He stated, “Just feeling a lot better than I was coming into training camp last year brings a better energy, just me overall feeling better and trusting myself. I’m able to show it more than say it now.

Kawhi emphasized that Paul George injects an additional level of energy into the team, ultimately benefiting everyone. He stated, “Moreover, PG consistently demonstrates his high energy and intensity during our practice sessions. I believe that has made a significant difference.
