Raptors' Kawhi Leonard in better health ahead of Sunday's Game 4
Star forward battled 'flu-like symptoms' in Game 3 win over Magic
Raptors star Kawhi Leonard said he's feeling better ahead of Sunday's Game 4 of Toronto's first-round playoff series in Orlando at 7 p.m. ET.
Head coach Nick Nurse revealed after the game that the 27-year-old forward had been feeling under the weather and hadn't practised in two days, calling Leonard's performance that night "gutsy."
"Just some flu-like symptoms," Leonard said at Sunday morning's shootaround. "It doesn't mean anything. No excuses over here. That's why I didn't say anything to nobody."
