Los Angeles Clippers Roster Report 2009-11-18ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Baron Davis, Shooting guard Rasual Butler, Small forward Al Thornton, Power forward Marcus Camby, Center Chris Kaman. Bench -- Guard Kareem Rush, Guard Sebastian Telfair, Forward Craig Smith, Center DeAndre Jordan, Forward Steve Novak, Guard/Forward Ricky Davis.

PLAYER NOTES:

--F Al Thornton showed a smooth jumper in the first quarter of Tuesday's loss to the New Orleans Hornets. He hit a difficult turnaround fadeaway moving toward his right and stroked an open shot from mid-range, and he parlayed this strong start into a season-high 30 points.

--F Marcus Camby made two consecutive hustle plays in the second quarter in a game filled with hustle plays for the big man, who finished with just four points but added five assists and 14 rebounds. He rushed to the center of the paint and tipped in a missed shot, then got back down court and dove for a loose ball, gaining possession with the Clippers down nine points.

--G/F Rasual Butler couldn't buy a basket early. However, as he has so frequently this season for the Clippers, he came through in the clutch, hitting a three with two seconds left in the first half to cut his team's deficit to five. Butler ended up with 12 points.

MEDICAL WATCH:

--G/F Kareem Rush injured his right knee during Tuesday's loss to the Hornets. It was reported during the loss that an X-ray on the knee turned out negative. An MRI is forthcoming, making Rush's status for Wednesday's game with the Memphis Grizzlies uncertain.

--G Eric Gordon (left groin) is day-to-day.

--F Blake Griffin (stress fracture in left kneecap) is out until at least mid-December.
