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'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.
