Clippers Injury Report

Greetings to all.  I hope everyone had a nice Christmas Day.  There were five NBA games yesterday.  Thank goodness the Clippers were not one of the participating teams.  They definitely needed the rest.

According to Lisa Dillman of the LA Times, Zach Randolph's knee injury is being described by Coach Mike Dunleavy as a sprained knee.   X-rays of the knee were negative, and no MRI was performed.  That is certainly welcome news. 

Mike Taylor underwent surgery on his fractured right thumb and could be out six to eight weeks.  (Imagine, he injured the thumb on Monday night, and was undergoing surgery Tuesday.  These guys move fast).  The loss of Taylor will mean more minutes for Baron Davis and Jason Hart, at least until a third PG can be brought in (the Clippers are considering holding an open tryout.  Any of you readers available?). 

Chris Kaman and Ricky Davis are still OUT.  There does not appear to be a time table for their return.  So the roster will remain thin. 

Next game is Sunday at home against Dallas.  This will be the third meeting with the Mavs.  The Clippers won the first, and won 47 minutes of the second game before absolutely collapsing down the stretch.  But they have shown that they matchup well against Mark Cuban's squad.  The game is at 12:30.
