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.”

Sources: Pacers Interested in Gordon Hayward

Something to keep an eye on once we find out when NBA teams can start making trades: some within the Pacers organization continue to have interest in trading for Celtics’ Gordon Hayward, per SNY sources.

It’s unknown what Boston would want in return for Hayward — or if the club is even open to moving him.

In an NBC Sports podcast in June, the Indianapolis Star noted that Hayward would be a player of interest for the Pacers in the offseason.

Hayward, who starred at Butler, can become a free agent by opting out of the final year of his deal, worth roughly $34 million. It’s hard to see Hayward opting out of his deal without the assurance of a long-term extension in place.

Steve Kerr and other members of the Warriors organization worked out Maccabi Tel Aviv prospect Deni Avdija on Thursday morning in Atlanta, according to sources. By all accounts, it was a positive get together, one in which the 19-year-old Israeli impressed observers. Not only did Avdija perform well in the workouts, but Warriors officials were blown away after meeting with him. The universal takeaway was that he’s a “great kid” with an immense work ethic.
