The LA Clippers assembled one of the deepest rosters in the NBA, and coach Doc Rivers believes it is built for the bubble after having already been tested by the unpredictability of the NBA's restart during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Clippers were without five of their top 10 players last week after Patrick Beverley, Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams each left the Orlando, Florida, campus in the span of seven days for excused family emergencies. This caused a little bit of an upheaval and is something that is being watched based on today's consensus picks. However, Ivica Zubac and Landry Shamet didn't arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort until last Saturday after both tested positive for COVID-19 and quarantined at home.
The Clippers open the restart against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday and will be without Williams, who is in quarantine, and Harrell, who is still not with the team. Both players are listed as out for the game, with Beverley listed as questionable.
