So much for getting to see the complete and healthy Clippers roster for an extended look.

That vision lasted, oh, a game and one-plus quarter.

(Nice team, by the way.)

Chances for a decent, late-season evaluation period evaporated when shooting guard Eric Gordon clattered to the court, victim of a hard foul from Denver center Timofey Mozgov in the second quarter of the Clippers' 106-103 victory over the Nuggets on Saturday night.

Gordon, the Clippers' leading scorer, landed hard and re-aggravated his injured right wrist and did not return. There was no flagrant foul called on the play. Although X-rays were negative, he did not travel with the Clippers to Charlotte on Sunday. They begin a five-game trip against the Bobcats on Monday night, finishing at Memphis on March 14.

Early indications are that Gordon could be out seven to 10 days.
