The 10-day contract of guard Lester Hudson is over and he was not re-signed to a second one, though that happening is not out of the realm of possibility. Doc Rivers, coach and president of basketball operations, said he expects to fill the spot.

“There is nothing right now, but we may, we will,” Rivers said. “We will sign someone.”

Rivers wasn’t sure if that would happen before Saturday night’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies at Staples Center.

“Most likely will, but not sure yet,” Rivers said at practice Friday morning.

The Clippers signed Hudson when Nate Robinson’s second 10-day contract expired. Robinson was not re-signed for the remainder of the season at that time because he was nursing a knee injury. Rivers was asked if Robinson is in the conversation to to be brought back.

“He’s in the conversation, yes,” Rivers said.

Rivers said Robinson’s knee has improved.

“I think it’s better, yeah,” Rivers said. “Probably not where you’d like it, but it’s better.”
