Yahoo! Sports: C.J. Leslie has injured shooting hand, will sit out drills at NBA draft combine

"Leslie's agent, Aaron Mintz of CAA, informed the NBA on Tuesday of the decision to sit out the basketball drills portion of the combine, league sources said. Leslie will participate in some athletic testing and interviews with team executives.

"Leslie's right hand is expected to be fully healed to work out individually for teams in the near future.

"One league personnel director told Yahoo! Sports that Leslie and Kentucky's Nerlens Noel rate as the two most explosive athletes in this year's draft class. Two teams drafting in the mid-20's told Yahoo! Sports that they believe Leslie will be gone before they'd get a chance to select him."
