Lou Williams questionable, Danilo Gallinari doubtful for Clippers vs. Spurs
The LA Clippers might be playing without two of their best players when they visit the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday.
According to Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints, Lou Williams is questionable due to a hamstring injury. Meanwhile, Danilo Gallinari is unlikely to play due to a back issue that has been bothering him ahead of their game at San Antonio.

Lou Williams already sat out Friday’s game against the Golden State Warriors and could possibly sit out against the Spurs yet again. Meanwhile, Danilo Gallinari went to the locker room in the second quarter of last night’s game because of back spasms and did not return.
While both players aren’t expected to miss a significant amount of time, their injuries come at an inopportune time for the Clippers. The Los Angeles team has already lost five straight games and have fallen out of the West’s playoff race after starting the season as one of the top contenders in the conference.
The Clips will be facing a Spurs team who is in a constant climb in the standings and has won seven of their last ten games.
With Williams and Gallinari likely out, it is expected that Mike Scott and Tyrone Wallace will see significant minutes for the Clippers on Sunday.
