DeAndre Jordan injury: Clippers center leaves game with strained arch in his foot

Kevin C. Cox

Jordan and Reggie Bullock were injured in the fourth quarter of the Clippers' loss against the Cavaliers on Saturday night.

The Los Angeles Clippers' injury woes continued Saturday night as DeAndre Jordan and Reggie Bullock both went down in the fourth quarter of a 88-82 loss to the Cavaliers. Jordan left the game with a strained arch in his right foot and Reggie Bullock sprained his left ankle after landing awkwardly on a rebound attempt.

The team is in the middle of a seven-game, 11-day road trip and was already without J.J. Redick and Matt Barnes.

Doc Rivers talked to NBA.com's Eric Patten about the injuries:

"I was going to put him [Jordan] back in but the way he walked to the table, he was limping, so I thought that wouldn’t be a good idea. So, I think he’ll be fine in the short run.

"Reggie we’re not sure."

Rivers went on to say that while X-rays were negative for Bullock, the team will likely need to look for roster help as a result of the injuries the team is dealing with now.

Jordan is a key component of the Clippers' frontcourt. He's averaging career-highs in minutes (35.1), points (9.9), rebounds (12.9) and blocks (2.2). Bullock is averaging just over 10 minutes per game but has received more playing time as a stopgap after Barnes went down in mid-November.
