WASHINGTON, May 15 (Xinhua) -- San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said on Monday that All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard will not play in Game two of the 2017 Western Conference finals against the Golden State Warriors.

"He's in an MRI right now. We'll see. We'll see what the MRI says. But, obviously, he won't play tomorrow." Popovich said on Monday.

Leonard had injured his ankle in Game 5 of San Antonio's second-round series against the Houston Rockets and missed the deciding Game 6. And he hurt the left ankle again after landing on the foot of Warriors center Zaza Pachulia while shooting with just under eight minutes left in the third quarter of Sunday's Game 1 against the Warriors.

After Leonard left the game, the Warriors cut the big 25-point deficit by surging an 18-0 run to overtake the Spurs in the fourth quarter with a 113-111 win to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.
