Even if the L.A. Clippers wanted to keep center DeAndre Jordan, it seems that the basketball gods are lining them up to the direction where the team will eventually put Jordan on the trading block. The Clippers are not that far away from a recent debilitating nine-game losing skid, and just when it looked like they are finally turning things around, star power forward Blake Griffin sustained a knee injury on Monday — one that will keep him sidelined for two months. Blake Griffin will be joining on the sidelines Danilo Gallinari, who has not played in each of the Clippers’ last seven games with an ailing glute, and Patrick Beverley, who’s out for the rest of the year due to a knee injury. The Clippers are unlikely to make the postseason with a banged up roster while playing in the ultra-competitive Western Conference, so the option to blow up what’s left of the team after Chris Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets back in the offseason is front and center once again.
