Don’t ask, don’t tell for Doc Rivers, Clippers

Don’t count on Coach Doc Rivers for injury updates because he pays no attention until the medical staff gives the word that a certain player is ready.
When asked about the progress of rookie forward Reggie Bullock, who is out with a sprained ankle, Rivers responded: “Who?”
And Rivers wasn’t sure if J.J. Redick (wrist) had begun shooting yet. In fact, Rivers met with Redick before Saturday’s game and the two chatted about just about everything but the shooting star’s health.
Bullock is still recovering from his high ankle sprain and Redick remains weeks away, though he has the post-surgical splint of his right hand.
“I joke with (Bullock) and say it’s the longest sprained ankle injury in the history of the NBA,” Rivers said, smiling. “You don’t want that title. But he’s trying. It was a bad ankle sprain, really bad. Today I know he shot. Other than that, I don’t really know.”
Backup center Ryan Hollins missed Monday’s game for personal reasons, the club said.
