According to the Clippers injury report, three players will be out in the clash with the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.

Kawhi Leonard (right knee ACL), Jason Preston (right foot injury) and Nicolas Batum (Health and Safety protocols) will be unavailable for the game between the two LA rivals.

All three of them have been long-term absences for the Clippers, therefore the rest of the roster is good to go vs the 17-time NBA champions.

For their part, the Lakers will have almost all players available, as LeBron James has cleared the league’s protocols and will make his return on Friday.
