Los Angeles Clippers Roster Report 2009-03-22


Los Angeles Clippers Roster Report 2009-03-22
--Veteran forward/center Brian Skinner has not been playing lately, as coach Mike Dunleavy is devoting the minutes available primarily to Chris Kaman, Zach Randolph and Marcus Camby. Rookie DeAndre Jordan, who has started 11 games, also is no longer in the rotation.

ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Baron Davis, Shooting guard Eric Gordon, Small forward Al Thornton, Power forward Zach Randolph, Center Chris Kaman. Bench -- Guard Fred Jones, Forward Steve Novak, Center DeAndre Jordan, Guard Mike Taylor, Guard Alex Acker.

PLAYER NOTES:

--G Alex Acker played the final 36 seconds of the loss to the Detroit Pistons against his former teammates. That was not long enough for Acker to make any dent in the box score. Acker was acquired from the Pistons last month for a conditional second-round draft pick.

--F Steve Novak had his three-point shooting spree shut off by the Pistons, who only allowed him to take one three-pointer, which Novak missed. Novak had made 21 of 34 three-point tries in the previous four games.

--G Eric Gordon has had fewer peaks and valleys from game-to-game as a rookie this season as teammate Al Thornton went through during his rookie season last year. Gordon's 22 points scored against Detroit marked the 41 time in his past 43 games that he has scored in double-figures. Included are 20 games in which he has scored at least 20 points.

MEDICAL WATCH:

--G Ricky Davis (tendinitis in his left knee) very well could be lost for the remainder of the season, which recently was acknowledged by coach Mike Dunleavy.

--G Mardy Collins (plantar fasciitis in his right foot) remains out indefinitely.
