The Clippers were able to reset the semifinals against the Jazz following back-to-back performances of at least 30 points from both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. But in a series that is now essentially a best-of-3 starting on Wednesday night in Salt Lake City, the Clippers will be without Leonard, who is out indefinitely with a right knee injury suffered late in Game 4 which the team fears could be an ACL injury.

Here’s what Leonard’s likely absence means for the Clippers in the remainder of the semifinals against the Jazz.

A full workload for Paul George

The Clippers went 11-9 in the 20 regular season games that Leonard missed this season. The only team in the league that had two All-NBA team selections were the Clippers this season, with Leonard on the first team and George on the third team.
