Clippers Vs. Mavericks: Banged Up Eric Gordon Expected To Play

As the Los Angeles Clippers look for their 13th win in their last 18 games tonight in Dallas against the Mavericks, it appears they will have the services of Eric Gordon. Gordon, the human Energizer Bunny, has hurt himself in each of the last two games, but isn't even listed on the injury report tonight for the Clippers. Here is the list of probable starters and injury reports for both teams set to do battle at American Airlines Center.

Clippers (17-26)

  • Point Guard: Baron Davis
  • Shooting Guard: Eric Gordon
  • Small Forward: Ryan Gomes
  • Power Forward: Blake Griffin
  • Center: DeAndre Jordan

Gordon has a torn tendon in his right ring finger, suffered Thursday in Portland, and a lower back contusion, suffered during Saturday's game with Golden State. However, neither injury was enough to put Gordon on tonight's injury report for the Clippers. Chris Kaman and Craig Smith are both out, as per usual.

Mavericks (28-15)

  • Point Guard: Jason Kidd
  • Shooting Guard: DeShawn Stevenson
  • Small Forward: Sasha Pavlovic
  • Power Forward: Dirk Nowitzki
  • Center: Tyson Chandler

Caron Butler, who ruptured his right patellar tendon on New Year's Day, is out for the Mavericks, as he will miss the remainder of the season.
