Player Notes

  • Out Monday with hip injury
    The Clippers list Diabate as out for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers with left hip soreness.

    Advice: Diabate, a two-way player who had been on assignment with the G League's Ontario Clippers, was forced to miss Ontario's 127-126 overtime loss to the South Bay Lakers with the same injury and will remain sidelined as he rejoins the NBA team. He's appeared in just nine games with LA in 2023-24, averaging 3.0 points and 2.1 rebounds in 6.1 minutes per contest. Yesterday, 7:24 pm
  • Unavailable Monday
    Markkanen (hamstring) is out for Monday's game against the Thunder.

    Advice: Markkanen will miss an eighth consecutive game due to a left hamstring strain, but he seems to be closing in on a return. Simone Fontecchio will likely remain in the starting lineup on Monday sans Markkanen. Yesterday, 5:01 pm
  • Iffy for Monday
    Eason is questionable for Monday's game against the Spurs due to left lower leg soreness.

    Advice: Eason has been dealing with a left lower leg injury throughout the season, but he has missed just one game over his last 13, which bodes well for his chances to suit up on Monday. Eason is averaging 6.6 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.1 blocks in 18.9 minutes per game over his last seven appearances. Yesterday, 4:39 pm

  • Questionable for Monday
    LaRavia (eye) is questionable for Monday's game against Dallas.

    Advice: LaRavia has been shut down since Nov. 1 due to a corneal abrasion in his left eye. A questionable tag should provide some optimism for LaRavia to return soon, as it is the first time he has not been listed as doubtful or out since his injury. Although LaRavia likely won't have a huge role when he returns, the team is very shorthanded with Luke Kennard and Marcus Smart dealing with injuries, so he could see some extra minutes if he can go on Monday. Yesterday, 3:20 pm

  • Listed as questionable
    McDaniels (ankle) is questionable for Monday's matchup in New Orleans.

    Advice: McDaniels has missed eight straight games since spraining his right ankle against the Knicks on Nov. 20. If he returns Monday, McDaniels will presumably be under a minute restriction following his lengthy absence. Yesterday, 2:59 pm
  • Unlikely to play Monday
    Bagley (back) is doubtful for Monday's game against the Pacers.

    Advice: Bagley moved back into the starting lineup Friday due to Jalen Duren (ankle) being sidelined. However, the former left the contest early after developing back spasms. With Duren and Bagley out, James Wiseman is the lone true center available, but Isaiah Stewart could also play more five after operating primarily as a power forward this season. Yesterday, 2:42 pm
  • Won't play Monday
    Mobley (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup against the Magic.

    Advice: Mobley will miss a second straight game due to left knee soreness. Monday's matchup is the first half of a back-to-back set, so Mobley should be considered questionable, at best, for Tuesday's contest in Boston. Dean Wade should draw another start in Mobley's absence Monday. Yesterday, 2:35 pm
  • Questionable for Monday
    Hunter is questionable for Monday's matchup against the Nuggets due to right quadriceps tendon soreness, Brad Rowland of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

    Advice: With Trae Young (illness) sidelined Friday, Hunter scored a team-high 24 points (9-18 FG) in a loss to Philadelphia. However, he's now in danger of missing his first game of the season, while Trae Young is slated to return to action Monday. If Hunter is sidelined, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Wesley Matthews would be candidates for increased roles. Yesterday, 2:21 pm
  • Iffy for Monday's contest
    Nesmith is questionable for Monday's game against the Pistons due to a right hip bruise.

    Advice: Nesmith was a key bench piece for the Pacers during their In-Season Tournament run and was tasked with guarding the opposing team's best player when he was on the court. The injury doesn't appear too serious, but if it forces Nesmith to miss any time, Bruce Brown, Bennedict Mathurin and Buddy Hield would be candidates for increased roles off the bench.
