Raptors star to miss Lakers game with sore ankle

Kawhi Leonard is sitting out with foot soreness when the Toronto Raptors face the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night. LeBron James, meanwhile, had a pedestrian 18 point, six rebound game in the loss. It's apparent he wants to experience the growing pains on a confidential basis in the locker room. The Raptors are out to an 8-1 start heading into the Lakers game. Kyle Kuzma scored 24 points and Brandon Ingram added 16 for the Lakers, They are 4-6 after their first 10 games with James.

The Lakers will take the court again on Wednesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves.


In Utah on Monday, the Raptors turned the ball over 10 times in the first half and still led by 11 at the break. They have the second-worst defensive rating (116.9) in first quarters through 10 games this season while scoring the fifth-most points per game (29 PPG) in first quarters in the National Basketball Association. Raptors coach Nick Nurse said Friday that Leonard would sit out the second game of back-to-back games in the early going as the team monitors his condition.
