Wrist injury sidelines Clippers' Eric Gordon
By Jeff Caplan
DALLAS -- The Los Angeles Clippers will be without leading scorer Eric Gordon for tonight's game as the Dallas Mavericks open a four-game homestand. Gordon remained in L.A. to have his sprained right wrist examined.
There was some hope that he would be able to fly to Dallas today and play, but the team announced that he has sprained wrist with a small bone chip that could keep him out three to four weeks.
Foye will is expected to start in Gordon's place. Gordon, a 6-foot-3, third-year shooting guard out of Indiana, has emerged as an offensive force this season, averaging 24.1 points game to lead the Clippers.
