Mason Plumlee has been absent for the LA Clippers since suffering a knee injury in the team's sixth game of the season. On November 6, he left the Clippers' contest with the Knicks after colliding with Julius Randle in the third quarter.

Soon after, it was revealed Plumlee had suffered an MCL injury and would be sidelined for several weeks. The expectation was that he could miss up to two months, with an absence for the majority of December likely.

Head Coach Tyronn Lue recently shared an update on Mason Plumlee's recovery from his knee injury. Lue said that Plumlee was able to participate in some slow jogging yesterday at the Clippers' practice facility.

As it currently stands, Plumlee is still a ways away from returning to game action, according to Lue. But the fact that he has progressed to the point of being able to put moderate strain on his knee again is a positive sign.

The Clippers knew they could not survive the grind of the NBA regular season without a backup center, which led them to signing Daniel Theis in Plumlee's absence. Theis has been solid, but getting Mason back will still be big for LA.

No updates on an exact timeline for Plumlee were given, so fans can still expect to see him back sometime around the end of December or beginning of January.
