7. Reggie Bullock’s Sprained Ankle
Reggie Bullock was beyond impressive at Las Vegas Summer League. He averaged 18 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists on 42 percent shooting.
Unfortunately, Bullock sprained his ankle on Dec. 7 and lost out on a chance for major minutes.
With J.J. Redick going down with an injury and Willie Green struggling to fill his shoes, Bullock would have been given every opportunity to carve out a role.
6. Willie Green’s Three-Point Shooting
Last season, Willie Green became the beneficiary of starter minutes due to Chauncey Billups suffering from various injuries.
He shot 42.8 percent from three-point range and was particularly effective shooting corner threes (47.8 percent)
This season has been a different story; Green is shooting 36.2 percent from the field and just 32.8 percent on three-point attempts.
Green temporarily became the starting shooting guard after J.J. Redick fractured his hand, but the Clippers were just 3-3 after his insertion to the lineup.
Jamal Crawford eventually took over as the starter and has not looked back.
