The Clippers can’t afford to not have him.
No doubt fans in LA held their collective breath on Thursday night after Jordan was forced to leave a game against the Sacramento Kings. Going for a follow-up on offense, Jordan twisted his left ankle after dunking home a rebound in the second quarter.
It was quickly announced that Jordan would not return. We’re still waiting on potential x-ray results and prognosis for the Clippers’ next game at home on Saturday against Sacramento.
The Clippers have flirted with a playoff spot all season long, and currently sit 9th in the West at 19-21 going into Thursday’s game vs. the Kings.
Losing Jordan for an extended period of time would spread thin an already injury-depleted squad. The good news is that Griffin did return from his concussion to play against Sacramento on Thursday.
Fans in LA are hoping he can stay on the floor and that Jordan makes a speedy recovery.
