Leonard was injured while leaping for a rebound. He crashed to the floor grabbing his right leg, and Joe Freeman of The Oregonian termed the sequence and following replay as "gruesome."
It was initially unclear if Meyer injured his knee or ankle, but everyone who saw the sequence seemed to be in agreement that it didn’t look good. Some have even said that it appeared as though Leonard broke his right leg.
Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts said after the game that Leonard is set to undergo X-rays on his injured right ankle, according to Freeman.
Prior to his injury, Leonard scored four points on 2-of-3 shooting from the field with four rebounds and one block. The 7'1 center is averaging 4.8 points and 3.5 rebounds per game on the season.
