Aldridge, Watson, Williams, Wright out vs. Clippers

Terry Stotts told the media before Monday night’s preseason game against the Clippers LaMarcus Aldridge (quad) , Earl Watson (calf), Mo Williams (ankle) and Dorell Wright (dislocated right middle finger) would all be sitting out.

CJ McCollum is out indefinitely and is also inactive. Aldridge, Watson and Williams all did not participate in Fan Fest on Sunday. Wright played in Fan Fest and Stotts is keeping him out to give him a night of rest and it is not related to the finger injury.

Stotts said that Thomas Robinson will start in place of Aldridge and that Dee Bost will split the point guard minutes with Damian Lillard.
