They aim to bounce back and regain momentum, though it will not be a walk in the park.

On November 7, the Clippers are scheduled to visit the San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center. After this, they will head to the Chesapeake Energy Arena to face the Oklahoma City Thunder on November 10. The next day, November 11, the New Orleans Pelicans will be the ones hosting the Clippers. These matchups on the #Clippers schedule are crucial because every team is a potential playoff opponent.

No Gallo?

The Los Angeles Clippers may miss a key player when they go on their three-game road trip. According to a recent report by the Los Angeles Times, it is uncertain if #Danilo Gallinari can play soon. Gallinari aggravated a hip injury (bruise) in the Clippers' defeat to the Miami Heat. The health woe limited him to 13 minutes of action. He finished the game versus the Heat with just six points, a rebound, and an assist.

In the report by the Los Angeles Times, Danilo Gallinari shared that the injury is making it difficult for him just to walk. Gallinari's revelation suggests that he is highly likely to sit out a few outings, which is a setback for the Clippers. The Italian forward is playing the most minutes for them each night so far this season. In nine games, Gallinari averaged 12.8 points (fourth-best for the Clippers), 4.6 rebounds, with 2.9 assists per contest.

If Danilo Gallinari needs rest to recover, Clippers head coach Doc Rivers has two players that can replace "Gallo" in the starting lineup. These are Wesley Johnson and Sam Dekker. Johnson is in his third year with the Clippers. The 30-year-old has been a starter for some of the organizations he played for in the past like the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Los Angeles Lakers. Dekker, on the other hand, is in his first season representing the Clippers. The former Wisconsin star was part of the mega-trade that sent Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets [VIDEO].

Injury list

Danilo Gallinari is the second member of the Los Angeles Clippers who sustained a significant injury this season. Before him, it was Milos Teodosic who went down for the Clippers. The Serbian point guard injured his left foot (plantar fascia) in their second game and is projected to be on the sideline for weeks.
