According to Clippers PR, guard Milos Teodosic has been upgraded to questionable for Monday night’s contest against the Toronto Raptors as he aims to return from a plantar fascia injury suffered over a month ago during the Clippers’ second game of the season. The 30-year-old rookie from Serbia quickly became a fan favorite during the pre-season and in his two regular season games, earning a place in the starting lineup and providing the spacing and vision that opened up the team’s offense for everyone on the court. With fellow backcourt starter Patrick Beverley now out for the season following knee surgery, and the team’s leader in points and assists, Blake Griffin, out for several more weeks with a knee injury of his own, Teodosic will provide the Clippers with a much-needed infusion of offensive firepower.

Monday night is also Star Wars night at STAPLES Center, where fans will receive a Milos Teodosic Jedi Knight Bobblehead—a fitting time for him to make his return to the lineup.
