Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford won't play Wednesday night.
Griffin sat out Monday's game to rest a sore hamstring muscle. Paul has missed several games due to an injured kneecap. Crawford is out with a sore shoulder. Expect big things from Eric Bledsoe at the point.
The Clippers are playing the injury-ravaged Orlando Magic, who will be without J.J. Redick (shoulder) and Arron Afflalo (calf). The Magic point guard Jameer Nelson will return from a bruised forearm injury.
Redick had an MRI on his shoulder, which showed no structural damage. Afflalo is expected back Friday.
Clippers all-stars Chris Paul and Blake Griffin WILL NOT play tonight vs. #Magic. Neither went through their team's shootaround.

It would be really easy to make a joke here about the Clippers stinking. But they’re actually good this year, so instead we’re going to make a joke about how Avon is something that our moms sell each other over lunch when they’re not having Tupperware parties.
Anyway, Chris Paul is now at the celebrity star basketball player level where he gets to have his own perfume — er...
Chris Paul has teamed up with AVON as the face of a new men’s fragrance, Untouchable. According to the beauty brand, “the new scent will capture the thrill of hitting the court when the crowd is going wild, sinking the game-winning shot and bringing home victory.”
Chris Paul describes the scent comparing it to his competitive nature: “The drive to win is what gets me out...

Having played short-handed during most of the season, the Wizards had no sympathy. Martell Webster scored 21 points and sank five 3-pointers as the Washington...
Already without Chris Paul, the slumping Los Angeles Clippers could be in for an even rougher road ahead with Blake Griffin hurt, too.
They aren't likely to get much sympathy from the injury-plagued Orlando Magic.
With Griffin uncertain to be available for a second straight game, the visiting Clippers try to get back on track Wednesday night against a Magic team that's...

In 2008, if I told you that there would be bandwagon Clipper fans invading the Verizon Center to spend top dollar on lower level seats to watch the Clippers plays the Wizards, well, forget what you would've thought, I probably would've Godzilla facepalm'd the crap out of my forehead.
Believe it or not, it's true. The Clippers have become...
Oh me oh my, somehow things always come back to anger, disgust and worst-case scenarios for a Clippers fan. Knowing that, I guess it only makes sense that after taking a year off I’d finally get back around to writing my “Diary of a Clippers Fan” in the middle of an increasingly worrying Clipper losing streak.
After smashing through previous Clippers records with a franchise...
