Los Angeles Clippers All-Stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, and PG Patrick Beverley have been ruled out for Tuesday’s game vs. the Atlanta Hawks. Leonard and George have been placed in health and safety protocols, which isn’t good for either player. They could end up missing an extended period of time. Beverley is dealing with a knee injury.

So this isn’t great news for the Clippers. Their depth will be tested with two All-Stars out of the lineup. Chances are Luke Kennard, Patrick Patterson and Reggie Jackson are the three players who are inserted into the starting lineup with Serge Ibaka and Nicolas Batum. The Hawks are also dealing with injuries to key players in Trae Young, Clint Capela and Danilo Gallinari, so Tuesday’s game could be pretty lackluster.
