More Clippers Injured in Win

Chris Kaman was already sitting in the second row in a suit, nursing a sore foot - plantar fasciatis will keep him out of games, possibly until Dec. 8th.

Ricky Davis was sitting next to him, finally shutting it down after trying to play at "about 60%" the last couple of weeks, tendinitis in his left knee.

So you can imagine the frown on Clipper Nation when Gordon left the game holding his hamstring with 9:32 remaining in the fourth never to return.

Then Camby seems to land squarely on his injured heel, grimacing and exiting at the 4:27 mark.

As if it could get any worse Taylor then proceeds to tweak his ankle, hobbling through the next few plays. Seems like he was able to work through it but he was clearly in pain for a couple of minutes or so.

Camby returned for the last couple of minutes, playing in pain, fighting on defense, giving his all to get the Clippers their third win of the season. But as soon as the buzzer went off, you could clearly see the pain in his face and he labored, hobling gingerly into the hallway.

So even though it was electric at Staples, I left wondering how much the Clippers lost in personnel for this upcoming 4 game road trip. The only good news is that their next game at Dallas is not until Tuesday so a couple days of rest might be enough time for Gordon and Taylor to be ok, but Camby...might need to shut it down, especially considering it's a pair of back to backs, on the road.

I guess this is why the Clippers have so many big men. I would like to see DeAndre get substantial minutes to see what he can do, but my guess is that Dunleavy will go to Skinner and Paul Davis. Not that I think they can't win with that combo, I just want DeAndre to get more game experience and show us what he's capable of.
