The Clippers will welcome back their two top players Friday night in a marquee matchup with the Utah Jazz, who currently hold the NBA's best record. Leonard has missed the team's previous three games with a lower left leg injury and George has missed seven straight games with bone edema in his right toe. Both Leonard and George are expected to face some sort of minutes restriction in their first game back.
Utah's Mike Conley will also make his return to the court tonight after missing six consecutive games for the Jazz because of a right hamstring injury. Conley will also face a minutes restriction tonight.
Tip off between the Jazz and
Clippers is tonight at 10 PM ET on ESPN.
