The Clippers really have been CRIPPLED with injuries this year, and it is undoubtedly showing. Five injuries, including Kaman, Davis, and Randolph. According to the site, it just says "out" for all of them. Does anyone have any updates on this? As good as the Camby, Gordon, and Thornton are, they are in no position to win games without the fallen stars and playing such huge minutes that injuries force them to play.

When Randolph got hurt they said he was going to be out 2 weeks. Im not sure about Kaman's he's been out so long.

Ricky Davis will be back in 2 games, Randolph is probably the closest to coming back, then Kaman shortly after, then Baron Davis I guess. Mike Taylor is out for about 6 weeks due to surgery.

As soon as Kaman comes back, I'd follow Randy Hill's advice and deal him to Chicago for Hinrich.

Stupid trade.. Knowing Dunleavy's style, we need a big man rotation.

We have plenty of guards when we're healthy.

That's the very problem though.

The quicker we forget or replace his style, the better off we'll be... that goes to all basketball fans in addition to Clippers fans.

His style is successful when he has the right players though.

See Zach Randolph and Elton Brand. When his players are healthy and he has the right rotation it could be good.

I think the only player that has to adjust to it is Baron Davis.

EDIT: Here's the answer to the post, Ramona said it:

I think Zach will be back very soon, followed by Baron, followed by Chris.

I'd be surprised if Zach wasn't back within a week or so, if Baron wasn't back in a week to two weeks. As for Chris, I'm not sure any more.

It could be two weeks, it could be a month, or two months. Hard to say on that one.

Disagree.

15 point come back... 2000 WCF's, I'd say he had the right players when he blew that game, that lead, that hope. :lol:

I am just being tough on him, he's done a hell of a general management of the team, but it's time for him to find the right COACH for the team - injuries or none.

I still think I should give him a chance with this team, he assembled it and now let's see what he can do with it.

I know the 2000 finals hurt lol, but everyone makes mistakes (Dunleavy makes more than most, but you know what I mean). Mistakes are a learning experience. For now we have Dunleavy. So we will play Dunleavy ball or die trying.

By the way I posted the answer to this post above.

Fair enough, he built it - he gets a chance to see what he can do with it. No team has been hit as hard with injuries, and I have actually been a Clippers fan this year, I like the makeup of this team. I hope they get out of the lotto though...

Why Dunleavy still have a job is beyond me...

Lol I wouldn't be so sure LD2k... Strange things happen in this league.

Plus, they did put up a good fight last game until the last 5 minutes, and the Lakers shot 45 free throws to the Clippers' 15.

And without Randolph..

So what's worse, Clippers beating the Lakers with injuries, or without? :P
