Stanley Roberts was with the Clippers for five years, but he played the equivalence of about two-and-a-half seasons. Injuries really cost him time with the Clippers. What else is new?

His first season in Los Angeles was by far his best — and his healthiest. He played 77 games for the Clips, starting 76 of them. He averaged over 11 points, six rebounds and two blocks a game. It was the best season he’d have for his entire career, and the 77 games would be the most he’d ever play.

The following year for the Clippers was when the injuries began. He’d only play 14 games, and averaged seven points and nearly seven rebounds per game. His entire 1994-1995 season was lost due to an achilles injury that he suffered.

Roberts returned in 1995, but missed 30 games. His minutes were way down, as his time as a starter had come to an end. In 15 minutes a game, Roberts was averaging seven points and three rebounds a game.

During his final season in Los Angeles, his minutes rose to 21 a game. He was still quite productive, averaging just under 10 points a contest to go along with five rebounds and a block. Sadly, he’d only appear in 18 games, with injuries costing him majority of his year.

Following the 1997 season, Roberts was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
