The Clippers will still be without
"Jamal is out for a while," Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said Monday.
The Clippers (42-25) are in seventh place in the Western Conference, after falling from fifth place last week. The Hornets (29-36) are in 10th place in the Eastern Conference.
The Hornets have lost three of their last four games, after having won five in a row to begin the month.
The last time the teams played, on Nov. 24, the Clippers won, 113-92. In that game, Chris Paul had 22 points and 15 assists, and Griffin had 22 points and 18 rebounds. The Clippers outshot the Hornets from the field, 51% to 41%, and from beyond the three-point line, 47% to 10%. The Clippers also outrebounded the Hornets, 43-33.
