In a season that has been consistently marred by injuries, the last man standing for the Clippers was the latest to sit.

Center DeAndre Jordan missed Saturday’s 126-105 win over the Sacramento Kings because of a sprained left ankle suffered in the second quarter of Thursday night’s road win over the Kings.

It marked the first game Jordan missed because of injury in his 10-year career, all with the Clippers. His next game will tie him with Randy Smith for most played in franchise history at 715.

Jordan, a first-time All-Star last season, is averaging 11.8 points per game on 66.1 percent shooting and leads the Clippers with 14.9 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game.

Coach Doc Rivers said he didn’t think Jordan will be out long, but added, “I can’t guarantee it.”

A three-team deal that would have sent Trevor Ariza to the Washington Wizards and Kelly Oubre to the Memphis Grizzlies is dead over which Brooks — MarShon or Dillon — the Phoenix Suns had believed they were getting, league sources said.

The Grizzlies and Suns didn’t communicate directly on the trade, using Washington as a conduit in coordinating the three-team deal. Washington believes it was told Dillon Brooks in conversations with Memphis, sources said. The Grizzlies insist they told Washington it was MarShon.

Memphis would not put Dillon Brooks in the trade, and in the end, the agreement was called off.
