In a season that has been marred by injuries to almost everyone, the LA Clippers are preparing for another starter to miss an extended period of time.

Shooting guard Avery Bradley, who was just acquired by the Clippers on January 29 as part of a trade package that sent power forward Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons, could miss as many as three weeks with a sports hernia injury, referred to by the team as athletic pubalgia.

Bradley played in all six games before the All-Star break with the Clippers since joining the team, but he missed the two games after the break, and he will continue to miss time.

"Avery's gonna be out for a little bit. So we're just gonna have to figure out how long," Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said. "Don't know, it could be a week, it could be three weeks, but we don't know yet."

Bradley, who is in the final year of a four-year contract signed in July 2014 while with the Boston Celtics, has seen all of his numbers go down from the 2016-2017 season. Bradley also missed seven games in December with the Pistons due to a groin injury. Rivers compared Bradley's injury to that of rookie point guard Jawun Evans, who has been out since January 22 with an abdominal injury.
