The Clippers canceled Tuesday’s morning shootaround due to precautionary concerns related to COVID-19, but Tuesday night’s game against the Mavericks shouldn’t be affected, writes Mirjam Swanson of The Orange County Register.
The team’s training center was quiet Tuesday morning, Swanson adds, and a formal announcement from the organization was made at 9:15 Pacific Time, citing issues involving the league’s health and safety protocols.
Veteran swingman Nicolas Batum
entered the protocols on Sunday after being a late scratch for that night’s game. No one has stated whether Batum tested positive for the virus, but he is projected to miss at least 10 days.
“I’m not sure the days, but I expect him to be out for (a while),” coach Tyronn Lue said. “I’m not sure the timetable, though.”
