Do the Clippers need a 15th man?

With the current injury status, the Clippers can only put 10 guys on the court. This creates problems. There are no "garbage time" guys. The vaunted 2nd string has to play the entire 4th quarter of blow-outs when you would typically play your garbage time guys (or 3rd stringers). So by the end of the game they are gassed. Against GSW Barnes, Bledsoe, Turiaf and Green played the final 15 minutes of the game. Many of their shots came up short (a sign of fatigue). LAC weren't going to lose the lead, but the ending looked bad. Plus when they get tired, injuries could happen. So should they sign another player to take some of the heat off the 2nd unit? This would also help keep the 1st string more fresh. Maybe it's too late ... should have done this weeks ago ... They haven't lost a game because of it ... yet. Travis Leslie is saying "dang, I could have got some serious minutes on this team!"
