Clippers Twitter Account Reveals Kawhi Leonard Drama, Ty Lue Beef

The Los Angeles Clippers revealed on Wednesday morning that team star Kawhi Leonard sustained a torn meniscus in his right knee.

Officials apparently discovered this injury prior to Game 3 of the team’s first-round playoff series against the Phoenix Suns, but didn’t go public with it until they were officially eliminated from the postseason on Tuesday.

Somehow that wasn’t even the worst news to come out of the Clippers’ camp today, though.

In the aftermath of L.A. getting bounced from the postseason, a team insider took to social media and divulged a number of issues plaguing the organization involving Leonard, head coach Ty Lue and much more.


Understandably, questions have since arisen about whether Lue will continue to serve as the team’s head coach. Based on his postgame comments on Tuesday, for now, the answer appears to be yes.

“First of all, I just want to thank our fans,” Lue said.

“They have been unbelievable this year. Sticking behind us during the inconsistencies of lineups and different things. They stuck behind us 100%, and so I just want to thank the fans. They were great, all year long, my whole tenure here. The last three years have been great.”

When asked if he plans to return next year, Lue replied with a “Yes, sir.”

Time will tell if he ends up being right about that.

This has been a brutal week for the Clippers. Between Leonard’s sister getting life in prison without the possibility of parole, Stephen A. Smith weighing in on that situation and how the season ultimately ended, it has been one blow after another.

Will the Clippers be able to get it together in 2023-24 and finally do something even remotely meeting the expectations set for them when this super team was put together? Time will tell.
