Kawhi Leonard will not play in the Raptors' matchup with the Clippers on Tuesday because of a sore right hip, coach Nick Nurse told reporters.

Leonard originally suffered the injury late in Toronto’s 104-99 home loss to the Bucks on Sunday, according to TSN. Leonard went through shootaround before the contest in Los Angeles but was still sore.

The two-time All-Star’s “status is up in the air” for the Raptors’ road game against the Warriors on Wednesday.

Leonard has averaged 26.1 points and 8.3 rebounds in 22 games for the Raptors in 2018-19. He has shot 48.8 percent from the field and 38.1 percent from 3-point range.

The 27-year-old star is in his first season with the Raptors. He and Danny Green were sent from the Spurs to Toronto in exchange for a package centered around DeMar DeRozan this summer.

The Raptors will enter the matchup against the Clippers with a 21-7 record.
