Kawhi’s future with the San Antonio Spurs could be in doubt following his second foul against Indiana.
The All-Star center had one foul against the Hoosiers in the first half, including a one-handed slam that sparked an Indiana rally that put the Pacers up by as many as eight points with 1:32 remaining.
Leonard was ejected after that and had one more in the third.
He has been a key cog for the Spurs this season, averaging 16.4 points and 9.2 rebounds in 35.8 minutes per game.
But the 23-year-old Leonard, who has averaged 12.5 points and 7.8 rebounds in his past four games, is averaging just 4.6 points and 1.8 boards in 11.2 minutes per contest with a .439 field goal percentage.
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was frustrated with Leonard’s inability to shoot at a rate that was good enough to match his career average of 40.8 percent from the field and has been missing his best shooters.
Leonard had 14 points in Monday’s 109-96 loss to Toronto and missed Saturday’s 102-93 loss to Utah due to illness.
He also was not on the court Tuesday for a game against Milwaukee because of the flu.
Coach Mike Brown said Leonard was going to be evaluated Wednesday and it was likely he would miss at least one game.
