The Clippers have struggled of late going 2-6 in their eight games without Chris Paul in the lineup. They are 0-1 when Blake Griffin is out as well.
We’ll see what happens in CP3s ninth game out Wednesday, although it’s against a team even more banged up — Orlando.
Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are out again for the Clippers Wednesday, tweets Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.
The good news for the Clippers is Orlando is on a 10-game losing streak, already had less talent on the roster and what talent they did have has been out injured. Glen Davis is out for the season and both J.J. Redick and Arron Afflalo are out Wednesday as well. Jameer Nelson missed the last Magic game but will be a game time decision on Wednesday.
If it becomes a battle of the benches it favors the Clippers. They will start the much-coveted Eric Bledsoe at the point and you can expect to see Jamal Crawford with the ball in his hands a lot.
