The Los Angeles Clippers are far from where their expectations are this season. With constant injuries keeping their star players out of rotation, the Clippers haven’t been able to string together a long series of winning games. The team has a 23-24 record so far and is in 8th place on the Western Conference table. Which may be leading some of its players to reconsider their time and role with the team.
