The Clippers have announced that reserve point guard John Wall has suffered an abdominal strain, per Brad Turner of The Los Angeles Times (Twitter link).
Turner adds that Wall is set to be reassessed in two weeks, meaning at minimum he will be out for that long.
Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN tweets that, in the interval, Reggie Jackson will step in to replace Wall as the team’s primary backup point guard.
Wall, 32, had been playing competently through his 34 healthy games with L.A., though his shooting numbers were somewhat inefficient. He’s averaging 11.4 PPG on .408/.303/.681 shooting in 22.2 MPG. Wall is also dishing out 5.2 APG and grabbing 2.7 RPG.
Wall has been open recently about the challenges he has faced in dealing with a minutes limit and modifying his workout regimen since joining the Clippers.
In additional Clippers injury news, Turner tweets that starting power forward Marcus Morris has incurred a left calf contusion and is considered day-to-day. Through 41 games this season, Morris holds averages of 13.3 PPG, 4.8 RPG, and 1.7 APG. The 6’8″ big man boasts a slash line of .441/.382/.803.

Clippers get D-Lo, Rivers and Forbes
Wolves get Kennard, Jackson and Covington
Wall can be offerred if Wolves like him.
Rumor: Heat fall in love with DLo and offer defensive player Lowry.
No thanks. I’d take Kennard over Dlo. Plus Jackson and Covington>Forbes and Rivers
Nobody wants DLo. Inconsistent play, poor decision making, and he is clueless on what he has to improve on. Reggie makes bad decisions at times but costs less is less disruptive and more reliable. Kennard is solid shooter and moved up the depth chart with his improvements. Not sure why they’re not playing Covington who’s a solid piece who fits the Clippers.
