The Clippers got hit by another injury. This time it was super-sub guard Jamal Crawford suffering a slightlybroken nose.
Crawford said he was injured in the fourth quarter of the Toronto Raptors’ game Friday night when he was hit by Kyle Lowry’s elbow.
The Clippers are saying that Crawford will be a game-time decision for Sunday’s game against the Boston Celtics.
He said he got an MRI Friday night and a CT scan Saturday that revealed a fracture.
He has been the backup point guard behind Eric Bledsoe because Chris Paul has been out with a bone bruise in his right kneecap.
“We’ll see how he responds tomorrow,” Clippers Coach Vinny Del Negro said about Crawford. “Obviously, Jamal is a big piece of our team and it’s another unfortunate injury for us.
