Kawhi Leonard submitted an atypically poor performance relative to his high standards in Game 3 against the Orlando Magic but there’s an explanation for his off-night.
Leonard did not practise the past two nights due to illness, head coach Nick Nurse explained to reporters post-game.
nurse said kawhi had a "gutsy" performance. apparently kawhi didnt practice and hasnt been feeling well. commended him on his 10 rebounds

The Raptors’ superstar finished 5-of-19 from the field with six turnovers, scoring 16 points and adding 10 rebounds in the team’s 98-93 victory against the Magic.
Toronto holds a 2-1 series lead against Orlando and if Leonard is anywhere near his top form for Game 4 Sunday, this series could quickly get out of hand.
