Clippers coach Ty Lue pretty much ruled that out Thursday when, asked to confirm Leonard’s status for Game 6 against the Utah Jazz, said: “He’s out.” Then again, as screwy a week as it’s been in the NBA, who knows what might happen? Planet Basketball has spun madly out of control the last couple of days. Two coaches fired, an...
