With about 3:25 left in the third quarter of Tuesday night’s victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder, Montrezl Harrell rolled his ankle after getting his foot caught on Dennis Schroeder. At the time, the LA Clippers were up by 16 points. Harrell hobbled to the bench after about 30 seconds of lying on the ground in pain.
By the start of the fourth quarter, he was back on the floor, much to the disappointment of Clipper Nation. Hindsight is 20/20 but the team needs to better evaluate situations like this, especially when they believe a championship is the ultimate goal.
