Clippers’ Jordan Sprains Thumb, Returns to Game

Early in the second half on Sunday at Staples Center, DeAndre Jordan stuck his right hand out to try and snag a loose ball. But, as the Clippers’ star center opened his right hand and reached for the ball, his thumb and Utah guard George Hill collided, and the results were painful.

Jordan immediately grabbed at his hand while bending over at the waist. He tried to keep playing, taking a step before doubling over again. “Anytime I see him like that, I’m worried,” Paul said. It seems like the Clipper guard can safely breathe a sigh of relief. Jordan’s thumb was merely sprained, and x-rays taken after game were negative. He was able to return to the game, finishing with 16 rebounds and a team-best plus-18 rating.

Restricted free-agent center Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal to return to the Denver Nuggets, league sources told ESPN.

Agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports and Denver president of basketball operations Tim Connelly reached agreement on the deal late Sunday night, league sources said.

With the deal, Denver was able to avoid Plumlee signing a $4.6 million qualifying offer for the 2017-18 season — which would’ve allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
