Anyone who has two eyes, good pain skills, and has watched the last two games of the Eastern Conference finals can see that something is wrong with Kawhi Leonard.
The superstar of the Toronto Raptors has tweaked his left leg in a quick slump game 3 on Sunday and had obvious pain as he led his team to a win in two overtime.
He looked worse in a Game 4 he limped and dragged across Tuesday, as his team-mates turned up to carry the Raptors to a Blowout Game 4 win.
Meanwhile, the Raptors have not acknowledged that he's injured, and head coach Nick Nurse has insisted that Leonard is fine.
Nick Nurse: Kawhi feels fine.

"He feels fine," the nurse told reporters. "There are no concerns at the moment, he's good."
OK. We will see Thursday night in Milwaukee.
Lowry plays with pain
Kyle Lowry is a different story.
A left thumb injury, which has bothered him since Toronto's second round against the Philadelphia 76ers, is still tormenting him, causing loud pain to Sister.
"Kyle's hand is not great," Sister said. "You know, he's – it's hurting, it hurts and it's a lot of pain, but he seems to be able to make it through the game and do what he can."
He did not seem to be hampered on Tuesday in a 25-point 6-Assist, 5-rebound attempt that played a big role in Toronto's victory. Nurse admitted that.
and we really are [seeing] a lot of hardship and again the ghost that he just wants to be out there and help his team as he can, "said Sister.
Leonard has done well despite a diseased leg
Leonard, on the other hand, was clearly disabled, but the Raptors endeavor to ease his suffering, as well as their prerogative, as they seek every advantage they can find in a high-stakes series.
He is shown a remarkable ability to deal with the pain and play well If the situation does not worsen, everything is less than a great feat by Leonard in Game 5 w I'm going to surprise.
