Reports of injuries from rockets and mowers
Monday evening, the Los Angeles Clippers host the Houston Rockets in California, and for the game, both teams announced their injury reports.
The Rockets will be without Darius Days, Ja’Sean Tate, Bruno Fernando and TyTy Washington Jr.
Meanwhile, the Clippers will be without John Wall, Kawhi Leonard and Robert Covington.
Going into the night, both teams are in trouble.
The Rockets are 1-6 in their first seven games, and they also had the worst record in the NBA last season.
They are not expected to be good as they are in rebuilding mode, but they have such talent as Jalen Green, Jabari Smith Jr. and Kevin Porter Jr.
It may take a little time, but if they can develop these three players, they could be a potential playoff team in a few years.
As for the Clippers, they are not in rebuilding mode and should be competing for a title.
Yet they are only 2-4 in their first six games of the season.
Leonard is their best player, but he’s missed the entire 2021-22 season, and this will be the fifth game (fourth in a row) he’s missed in the new season.
In the two games he played, he averaged 12.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game in 21 minutes of playing time per game.
Additionally, Paul George is off to a slow start to the season averaging 19.0 points per game on 38.8% shooting from the field.
