Los Angeles Clippers Roster Report 2009-03-10


Los Angeles Clippers Roster Report 2009-03-10
ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Mike Taylor, Shooting guard Eric Gordon, Small forward Fred Jones, Power forward Al Thornton, Center DeAndre Jordan. Bench -- Guard Alex Acker, Forward Zach Randolph, Guard/Forward Mardy Collins, Forward Steve Novak.

PLAYER NOTES:

--F Al Thornton posted the type of rebounding numbers that the Clippers need from him on a nightly basis when he grabbed nine in 43 minutes against Indiana. When asked recently about his rather meager rebounding average, Thornton said, "(Marcus) Camby takes all the rebounds."

--G Mike Taylor has a lot to learn if he wants to have a sustained NBA career as a point guard. The subtleties that Taylor must grasp are incorporating his teammates in the half-court offense and not forcing the issue by looking for his own scoring opportunities.

--C DeAndre Jordan has had a few highlight moments in his rookie season, but he greatly would benefit by attending noted NBA assistant coach and master clinic conductor Tim Grgurich's fundamental camp this summer.

MEDICAL WATCH:

--G Baron Davis (sore right hamstring) sat out the game against the Pacers. Davis acknowledged recently that he has not been healthy at any point this season because of a myriad of injuries that began in training camp.

--C Chris Kaman (plantar fasciitis left foot) will play for the first time since late November on Tuesday, when the Cavaliers visit the Clippers.

--F/C Marcus Camby (migraine) missed the game against the Pacers. He left the previous game at halftime because of a recurring migraine.

--G Ricky Davis (tendinitis left knee) plans to rest for at least two weeks. A recent MRI revealed that Davis has no structural damage in his knee but has extreme inflammation.
