Patrick Beverley suffered a season-ending injury in November. Milos Teodosic has been repeatedly hurt, including the last few games.

So, the Clippers have had to rely more than expected on point guard Juwan Evans, a rookie second-rounder.

And now even he’s out.

Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times:

The Clippers are two games and two teams out of playoff position with just five games left. A longshot chance of reaching the postseason looks even less likely.

L.A. is left to lean on two-way-player Tyrone Wallace at point guard. Lou Williams and Austin Rivers can also play lead guard, but the more they’re used at the one, the less depth on the wing.

Doc Rivers has done an incredible job keeping the Clippers humming amid departures, trades and injuries. But the obstacles keep stacking up.
