Los Angeles Clippers Roster Report 2009-03-23


Los Angeles Clippers Roster Report 2009-03-23
--Veteran post player Brian Skinner has not been listed on the Clippers' inactive list or injury report but he would only be able to play limited minutes due to a lingering inflamed Achilles' tendon.

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

PLAYER NOTES:

--F Steve Novak will be a restricted free agent this summer and said recently that he hopes to return to the Clippers. He is making a strong case for himself. The offense is ideal for Novak because it takes advantage of his catch-and-shoot strength. Over the past six games, Novak has made 24 of 39 three-point field-goal tries.

--F-G Mardy Collins returned to action following a five-game absence due to plantar fasciitis. Collins played 13 minutes against Toronto off the bench and scored six points, with three rebounds.

--F Zach Randolph in all likelihood will be the Clippers' No. 1 scoring option going into the 2009-2010 season. Randolph bounced back from a nine-point scoring performance against Detroit to pump in 20 points in the loss at Toronto. Randolph has had 21 games of 20 or more points since the Clippers acquired him in late November from the New York Knicks.

MEDICAL WATCH:

--G Ricky Davis (tendinitis in his left knee) is day-to-day.

--F Al Thornton (sore right shoulder) did not play against Toronto.
