Clippers Vs. Hornets: Eric Gordon Out Tonight For Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers will be without their leading scorer tonight in New Orleans when they face Chris Paul and the Hornets. Eric Gordon, who is averaging 21.1 points per game this season, is out for tonight's game with what the team called a "left shoulder stinger." Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times has more information:

"He’s better today, then if he goes in and gets hit again, he could be out a week," [head coach Vinny] Del Negro said. "It doesn’t make a lot of sense. He’s a tough kid. He’s a strong, powerful kid, so for him to not play, he’s got to be pretty sore."

Here are the probable starting lineups for tonight's contest:

Clippers

Point Guard: Eric Bledsoe

Shooting Guard: Rasual Butler

Small Forward: Ryan Gomes

Power Forward: Blake Griffin

Center: Chris Kaman

Baron Davis is listed as questionable with a sore left knee. Randy Foye is listed as day-to-day with a strained left hamstring.

Hornets

Point Guard: Chris Paul

Shooting Guard: Marco Belinelli

Small Forward: Trevor Ariza

Power Forward: David West

Center: Emeka Okafor

The Clippers have lost 13 straight to the Hornets.
