It’s frustrating,” said Tyron Lue after the absence of LA Clippers Star players in the season. He further added, “I mean, you can’t get a rhythm of how we want to play with all of our guys here, but everyone’s dealing with the same thing so I’m pretty sure, I talked to four or five coaches around the league that’s frustrated with the same thing, so just having a chance to have our whole team for five, 10 games, just to see how it looks going forward. But like I said, it is what it is, talking about the last two years just being able to adapt and we’ve done that but it is frustrating.

Paul George’s injury was reported after the Clippers match against Portland Blazers on 6th December, after which he didn’t appear for 5 games in a row, he came back on 20th December with a match against San Antonio Spurs.

During a recent report from Adrian Wojnarowski on ESPN, he said, “The team will re-evaluate [George] in 3-4 weeks, they’ll see if rest can get him on a pathway to recovery, but he’s gonna be out certainly a significant period of time, and there’s no real sense of when, or if, he’ll be back this year.”

LA Clippers is currently playing with a record of 17-16 in this season so far. They have a huge challenge in front of them to stay alive in the season and qualify for playoffs with remaining healthy team and without their star players.
