Clippers’ return to health with Gallinari, Teodosic could put end to DeAndre Jordan trade chatter

first_imgMeanwhile, Jordan has stepped up his game with four of the Clippers’ opening-night starters sidelined for extended periods by injuries. Rivers and the coaching and management staffs have no complaints about the play of Jordan, who is averaging 10.5 points and 13.9 rebounds.Rivers said he doesn’t wish to overburden Jordan with demands for more offense and improved defense and rebounding with the Clippers shorthanded. Rivers doesn’t want Jordan to become frustrated when things go haywire, as they have at points during their three-game losing streak.“I don’t want to ask him to do more,” Rivers said. “D.J. has a lot on his plate right now.”GALLINARI UPDATERivers said he didn’t expect a period of adjustment once Gallinari returns to the lineup. Gallinari is expected to be shifted to power forward from small forward, essentially filling Griffin’s role. Gallinari’s minutes will be restricted, no matter whether he returns Wednesday or Saturday.Asked if he expected to need time to regain his offensive rhythm after an extended layoff because of his glute injury, Gallinari said, “I hope not. I hope I’ll be ready right away. That’s what we’re working on. Hopefully, I’ll be find my rhythm right away.”Gallinari said he didn’t expect his conditioning to be an issue.“A lot of areas,” he said when asked where he could help the Clippers the most. “Once I get back, I want to help any way I can. Defensively. Offensively. You guys (reporters) know better than me how I can help the team. There are no secrets.”PROBABLE STARTERSThe Clippers listed their probable starters for Wednesday’s game against Minnesota: Austin Rivers and C.J. Williams at the guard spots, Jordan at center, and Wesley Johnson and Jamil Wilson at the forward positions. It’s the same lineup they used in their 112-106 loss to the Timberwolves on Sunday in Minnesota. PLAYA VISTA — Contrary to popular opinion, the Clippers’ season is not over.They have 60 games to play and there’s every reason to believe they will begin looking more like themselves sooner rather than later, with Danilo Gallinari and Milos Teodosic expected back in the lineup within hours, if not days.Gallinari could play Wednesday for the first time in 14 games, after suffering a strained left glute Nov. 5. If he can’t play against the Minnesota Timberwolves, then it’s anticipated that he’ll be sound enough to return Saturday against the Washington Wizards.Teodosic is likely to be right behind Gallinari as he attempts a return from a plantar fascia injury to his left foot suffered in the first half of the second game of the season Oct. 21. Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Tuesday he expected Teodosic to sit out for only two or three more games.
