"I have no idea". "Just depends on how the ankle heals", Popovich said. "I'd probably list him as questionable".
"It's not what I expected-I'm disappointed", Popovich said. "I think we've maybe felt it too much, Kawhi (Leonard) being gone, in the sense that, as I watched, I don't think they believed".
