John Wall Not Practicing
Wall did not practice on Friday due to soreness in his left knee and the knee issues seem to be bothering Wall for about a month now. Hopefully him not practicing on Friday is just cautionary, however the fact, that the Washington Wizards want an MRI on the knee suggests there may be a bigger issue.

With Simmons out, T.J. McConnell should be looking at some extra minutes.
DeAndre Jordan Trade Rumors
Since winning their first four games, the Clippers have lost 11 of their last 13 games. Sitting at 6-10 it is too early to quit on the season but several teams have been showing interest in him.
Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post wrote “DeAndre Jordan, who can become a free agent after the season, has been coming up in trade conversations, with multiple teams talking potential trades,”
If the Clippers think there is a chance Jordan leaves the team for free agency this summer then they could explore trading him. We shouldn't forget that back in 2015 Jordan almost joined the Dallas Mavericks as a free agent. He has shown the willingness to look elsewhere before so don't be surprised if he considers leaving the Clippers again.
