Whicker: Depleted Clippers run into healthy Joel Embiid

Ninety percent of winning is just showing up. NBA viewers are becoming accustomed to seeing only three Beatles or watching the Jackson Four. When the rare luxury game comes up on the regular-season menu, the news is who isn’t playing, not who is. On Friday night the Clippers were missing Kawhi Leonard to go with the already injured Patrick Beverley and Serge Ibaka, and the 76ers were doing without Tobias Harris. This did not showcase the best aspects of the best team in the East, or the team wit...

Justin Upton’s prescription: no swings, home mattress

ANAHEIM ― Justin Upton played nine innings in left field for the Angels on Monday. He collected one hit and one stiff back that grew worse as the game went on. He did not swing a bat for three days, then returned to the lineup Friday night against the Minnesota Twins. Upton, 33, is hopeful. He was batting just .194 at the time of the injury but believes his timing hasn’t drifted too far since spring training, when he batted .357. “We’re looking at things, making adjustments, and starting to feel...

Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger has a hairline fracture of his left fibula

SAN DIEGO — Cody Bellinger’s calf injury was originally described as “two cleat contusions.” It turns out it was more serious than that. Bellinger was eligible to return from the Injured List Friday. But according to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, a lack of progress in his recovery prompted the Dodgers to send Bellinger for another examination this week. That examination revealed a hairline fracture in his left fibula. It now appears Bellinger will be out for at least another week or two. “He kin...

Ahead of Lakers’ 2-game set with Jazz, injuries seize the spotlight

In another season, an alternate universe where the world and the NBA are set in their normal rhythms, the weekend would be ushering in something special: a two-game series between the Lakers and the Utah Jazz, each with a legitimate chance to play for the Larry O’Brien trophy this summer. Those teams will still meet, on Saturday afternoon and Monday night, but the billing of two Western Conference contenders squaring off is significantly diminished by the players who won’t be suiting up.

DeMarcus Cousins a pleasant surprise for some Clippers

In a way, DeMarcus Cousins defied expectations in his first 10 days with the Clippers, Coach Tyronn Lue said. That scowling dude some of his new teammates had only watched play for so many seasons? The guy who played with an edge that brought about so many technical fouls they added up to a suspension in 2017? Lue said his squad is learning quickly: Boogie is fun to have around. “A lot of people didn’t know Cousins before he got here, so they didn’t know anywhere he’s been, he’s always been a gr...
