The Clippers will face the Lakers on Thursday night without two players in their lineup.

More specifically, Serge Ibaka (lower back tightness) and Amir Coffey (Health and Safety protocols) have been ruled out for the contest.

Ibaka has been sidelined since March 15 and there is still no timetable for his return. The Clippers (44-22) have already secured their spot in the playoffs.

Meanwhile, the Lakers (37-28) are still trying to clinch their playoff spot, while they could be without several players in the game.
