NBA: Luckless Clippers handed Powell blow

Los Angeles Clippers will be without new arrival Norman Powell for the foreseeable future after suffering a fractured bone in his left foot.

The Clippers take on Golden State Warriors in LA on Monday and they can be backed at 2/1 to win in the Money Line, while the Warriors are 5/12.

Clippers rocked by Powell loss

Powell sustained the injury during Thursday's loss to Dallas Mavericks in just his third appearance for the team since joining from Portland Trail Blazers.

The guard then sat out the defeat at the Mavs on Saturday, and on Sunday the team confirmed he had sustained a fracture and would be out indefinitely.

"Clippers guard Norman Powell suffered a fractured medial sesamoid bone in his left foot. The treatment is non-surgical at this time and there is no timetable for his return," the Clippers said in a brief statement.

The Clippers sent Eric Bledsoe, Justise Winslow, Keon Johnson and a future draft pick to Portland in exchange for Powell and Robert Covington.

Clippers now short on options

The arrival of Powell in LA was supposed to provide cover for injured stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, who could both be out for the rest of the season, but it now looks unclear as to whether he will be able to feature again this term himself.

Powell had made a solid start to his Clippers career, averaging 21 points, three rebounds and four assists, despite the fact the team lost all three games he played in.

The LA outfit sit in eighth place in the Western Conference with a 28-30 overall record and look well placed to secure a play-in spot, at least, and they will be desperate for a few of their injured stars to return in time for the playoffs if they are to have any chance of making an impact in the postseason.
