No one can say coach Doc Rivers has had it easy, because he hasn't. And he knows that in order for this team to be successful, Crawford needs to be on the court.
In 60 games this season, Crawford is averaging 19.0 points (2.4 three-pointers) and 3.2 assists in 30.7 minutes per game.
With Crawford likely to miss his second straight game, backup point guard Darren Collison will be expected to start. While Green should anticipate to see a lot more minutes again at the shooting guard position.
The Clippers are fourth in the Western Conference with a record of 41-20.
