PLAYA VISTA, Calif. -- Clippers star Kawhi Leonard remains questionable for Game 2 of Los Angeles' first-round playoff series with the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night.

Leonard participated in practice Monday, but coach Ty Lue said there would be no contact during what he described as a walk-through practice session designed to clean up things the team needed to work on.

"He's going to go through practice today and we'll see," Lue said when asked if Leonard will play Tuesday.

Leonard has missed nine straight games with inflammation in his right knee, which has undergone surgeries in the past for ACL and meniscus injuries.

Leonard hasn't played since March 31, and Lue said he did not go through any contact prior to being listed as questionable on the injury report and missing Sunday's Game 1.

If Leonard does not return Tuesday, he will have another three days before Friday's Game 3 in Dallas.

The Clippers lead the best-of-seven series 1-0.
