News: Leonard (shoulder) is expected to play in Tuesday's Las Vegas Summer League game against the Hawks. Impact: A minor shoulder injury has caused Leonard to miss the Blazers' first two summer league contests.

News: Leonard (shoulder) will not play in Sunday's Las Vegas Summer League game versus the Rockets. Impact: The nature of the shoulder injury is unknown, but it caused Leonard to sit out Saturday's contest as well. Participating in his third summer league, Leonard enters a critical offseason during which he'll need to prove to the Blazers that he's taken significant steps forward. The 2012 lottery pick saw time in only 40 games last season after appearing in 69 as a rookie. And with the recent addition of Chris Kaman, Leonard's chances of sneaking up the depth chart appear bleak. He'll open the season as the fourth center behidn Robin Lopez, Kaman and Joel Freeland.(RotoWire, )

News: Leonard sat out Saturday's game at the Las Vegas Summer League due to an injured shoulder, The Columbian reports. Impact: Leonard relayed that he's unsure of his availability Sunday and may require a few more days in order to achieve full health. This particular summer league was intended to display his progress as a professional, after two campaigns in which his playing time dwindled. However, the 2012 first-round pick is experiencing another hard knock in his quest to show his worth to Blazers brass, who inked Chris Kaman (calf) to a two-year deal already this offseason. No matter how much of a workload he's able to eek out in Las Vegas, Leonard will sit an undistinguished fifth on the depth chart at center heading into the 2014-15 campaign.(RotoWire, )
