Clippers in-game report: Chris Kaman hurt [Updated]

November 9, 2010 |  6:13 pm

 The news keeps getting worse for the injury-riddled Clippers.

On Tuesday, it was center Chris Kaman spraining his left ankle late in the first quarter here in New Orleans against the Hornets. Kaman planted awkwardly and turned over on the ankle and went down in visible pain with 4:40 remaining.

He limped back to the bench and immediately went back to the locker room for treatment and examination. Results of any tests on the ankle were not yet available.

[UPDATED, 7:15 p.m.; The Clippers' initial diagnosis is that Kaman has a second-degree ankle sprain and will be out two to three weeks.]

The Clippers already were hampered in a big way without the presence of guard Eric Gordon, who injured his left shoulder on Saturday at Utah in the double-overtime loss. Guard Randy Foye (strained left hamstring) remains out and Baron Davis (swollen left knee) returned to the lineup against the Hornets and got into the game late in the first quarter.
