Because Leonard and Lowry could still clearly play and they were clearly well enough to be effective contributors to the team. Durant and Thompson clearly could not. Michael Jordan might have been sick with the flu in 1997, but he still dropped 38 points on the Jazz. A respiratory illness, a hurt wrist, a sore leg all suck and ideally, we wouldn't want our star players to have them, but they're all better than injuries that won't allow you to put weight on your leg.
