The Los Angeles Clippers are in amazing form right now. With four victories in a row, they have cemented themselves as a Western Conference juggernaut, as they have the second best record in the league right now.
The Kings, despite having a loaded side, have struggled to find form. They are a mess defensively and find themselves dead last with a dismal defensive rating of 121.8 points. Pressure is piling up on Coach Walton who needs to find a way to bring some solidity to the team.
The Clippers face off against the Kings tonight at 10:00 PM EST. Let’s look at the injury reports and the probable lineups of the teams.
The Clippers have bounced back in some style. After a crushing defeat to the Warriors, the Clippers have won four games in a row. They now have a record of 10 wins in the fourteen games they have played.
They have a healthy squad and only have some minor injury concerns. Jay Scrubb, their backup shooting guard, is suffering from a foot injury and is out against the Kings. 3-time Sixth Man of the Year, Lou Williams, is questionable for the game as he recovers from a hip injury. Center Serge Ibaka is also probable for the game.
The Clippers had a comfortable victory last time they faced the Kings. They will hope that they can replicate the same in their second encounter.

The Kings have some injury concerns. Their rotational forward DaQuan Jeffries is out with an ankle injury, forward Jabari Parker is out with the NBA’s health and safety protocols, and veteran center Hassan Whiteside is probable against the Clippers as he recovers from a hip injury.
Coach Luke Walton will hope that his team can bounce back and regain some form, with victory against the Clippers.
