The LA Clippers will continue their four-game road trip Wednesday night against the Nets at Barclays Center. It will be their second straight contest in New York after taking on the Knicks on Monday.
LA will look to bounce back after a disappointing loss at Madison Square Garden. The Clippers have lost all three of their road games this season, with a perfect 3-0 record on their home floor.
In their second consecutive matchup against an under .500 team, the Clippers continue to face a relatively soft schedule to begin the season. They must take care of business against teams like the Nets to capitalize on this opportunity in front of them.
Is Terance Mann playing tonight vs the Nets?
Many are wondering about Terance Mann’s status heading into tonight’s game. Mann has missed the first six games of the Clippers’ regular season after suffering an ankle injury during practice.
It was announced on Tuesday that Mann had been upgraded from out to questionable for Wednesday night. There seems to be a solid chance that Mann makes his season debut in Brooklyn.
Full Clippers injury report vs Nets:
In addition to Mann’s potential return, there are other new injury updates for the Clippers as well. After suffering an MCL injury in the second half against the Knicks, Mason Plumlee will be out on Wednesday.
The length of time Plumlee will be out is still yet to be determined. Brandon Boston Jr. also remains out while he is recovering from quadriceps tendinopathy.
Full Nets injury report vs Clippers:
The Brooklyn Nets will potentially be down several rotation players on Wednesday night. Ben Simmons is questionable with hip soreness, while Cam Johnson has been ruled out with a calf injury.
Lonnie Walker IV had been dealing with left knee soreness, but is probable for the Nets on Wednesday. The rookie for Brooklyn, Dariq Whitehead, was recalled from the Long Island Nets but remains out while recovering from a foot injury.
