|12/2/2013||Jordan Farmar, PG||Farmar will be out for roughly four weeks after tearing his left hamstring. Farmar left Sunday night's game against Portland after playing just 56 seconds. He had an ultrasound examination Monday.
Analysis: Farmar is off to a strong start in his return to the Lakers, where he won two NBA titles before playing in New Jersey and Turkey. The UCLA product is averaging 9.2 points and 4.4 assists per game for Los Angeles.
|12/2/2013||J.J. Redick, SG||Redick will be out for six to eight weeks due to a broken bone in his shooting hand and a ligament tear in his right elbow.
Analysis: Redick will be re-evaluated on Monday by hand specialist Dr. Steve Shin to determine what further course of treatment will be necessary. His injuries, which occurred in Friday night's 104-98 overtime win at Sacramento, complicated things even more for the Clippers with reserve forward Matt Barnes missing his sixth straight game due to an eye injury.
|12/2/2013||Nate Robinson, G||Robinson finished one shy of a season-high with 23 points in Sunday's win at Toronto.

Analysis: He was also one shy of his second straight double-double, posting nine rebounds.
|12/2/2013||Brandon Jennings, PG||Jennings had 20 points and dished out 12 assists in Sunday's win over Philadelphia for his fifth double-double of the season.

Analysis: Bosh had totaled 17 points over his previous three games before going 8 for 13 from the floor against the Bobcats.
|12/2/2013||Kemba Walker, PG||Walker scored 28 in Sunday's loss to Miami.
