Clippers' Eric Gordon to miss three-to-four weeks with wrist injury

January 25, 2011 |  5:46 pm

The Clippers' injury-plagued season took another wrong turn with the news Tuesday that star guard Eric Gordon could be out of the lineup for three to four more weeks.

Gordon, who was injured on Saturday against the Warriors, has a sprained right wrist and a small bone chip fracture, the Clippers said.

He was examined Tuesday in Los Angeles by Dr. Steve Chin of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic. Gordon did not travel with the team to Dallas for their game Tuesday against the Mavericks. 

The 22-year-old shooting guard was having his best season with the Clippers, averaging 24.1 points a game.
