Injuries Becoming Concern for Clippers

A trip that already was already shaping up as a major challenge for the Clippers only got more difficult Monday night when Blake Griffin didn’t play because of a strained left hamstring.
And so as the Clippers continue to fall apart on the injury front, they also are falling apart on the court. They lost their third consecutive game Monday, 98-90 to the lowly Washington Wizards, a game in which sloppy ballhandling cost them a chance at victory.
Crawford has played the last two games with a broken nose suffered during Friday night’s game in Toronto.
Meanwhile, starting guards Chris Paul (bruised right kneecap) and Chauncey Billups (tendinitis in left foot) sat out again and are both listed as day to day. Paul has missed eight consecutive games and 11 of the last 13; Billups has played in only three games all season.
“Obviously, we are missing some of our better players,” Crawford said. “But there’s no excuse. We all have to continue to step up and get the monkey off of our backs.”
