Gallinari (glute) will remain sidelined for Friday's matchup with the Cavaliers, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gallinari will be missing a fifth straight game Friday and there's no update on a possible timetable for a return as he works back from a glute injury. For that reason, he'll continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis, with his next opportunity to play coming on Saturday against the Hornets. Wesley Johnson has started the last four games in place of Gallinari at small forward, but has averaged just 6.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.3 steals across 25.0 minutes.

Gallinari (glute) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the 76ers, Elliott Teaford of Southern California News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gallinari is set to miss his fourth straight games, as he's still dealing with a lingering glute injury. Following Monday's contest, the Clippers will have off until Friday, which gives Gallinari another four days off for additional rest and recovery. Consider Gallinari questionable for Friday's contest, but in the meantime, Wesley Johnson should pick up another start at small forward in his place. That said, Johnson has averaged just 5.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal across 26.7 minutes over the last three starts.

Gallinari (hip) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Thunder.

EDGE Analysis

Gallinari continues to deal with a strained left glute and despite traveling with the team on their current road trip, he'll have to remain sidelined for a second consecutive game. Wesley Johnson drew the start in his place Tuesday and should do so again after posting 12 points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 33 minutes in relief. Gallinari's next opportunity to take the court will be Saturday against the Pelicans.

Gallinari (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's matchup with the Spurs, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gallinari traveled with the team for their current three-game road trip, but indicated that he was having trouble walking due to the discomfort from his hip, so it's not a surprise he'll be held out. He'll have another few days off for rest before Friday's matchup with the Thunder, though Gallinari can tentatively be considered questionable for that contest as well. Wesley Johnson is the favorite to start in his place, while Sam Dekker is also a candidate to pick up increased run.

Gallinari (hip) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Spurs, Paul Garcia of TheSportsDaily.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gallinari has reportedly been having trouble walking, so the fact he's even listed as doubtful is somewhat surprising. He saw just 13 minutes during the team's most recent game against the Heat and struggled, going 1-for-5 from the field. Assuming he's held out, Wesley Johnson and Sam Dekker will likely absorb most of his workload.

Gallinari (hip) joined the Clippers for their three-game road trip this week, but is uncertain to play Tuesday against the Spurs, Kevin Baxter of the Los Angeles Times reports. "I can barely walk," Gallinari said Monday. "I've been having pain the past two or three games and now it's getting to a point where I'm having problems walking so I've got to take care of it."

EDGE Analysis

Based on Gallinari's comments, it seems more likely than not that he'll be sidelined for the first time all season Tuesday after the bruised left hip limited him to just 13 minutes in the Clippers' last game Sunday against the Heat. Prior to that contest, Gallinari had been averaging 34.3 minutes per game over the Clippers' first eight bouts, so it may make sense for the team to hold the oft-injured forward out for a little bit in order to avoid a longer-term issue. If Gallinari is in fact sidelined, Wesley Johnson would likely be the main beneficiary; Johnson played a season-high 33 minutes Sunday, finishing with six points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one block.

Gallinari suffered a bruised left hip during Sunday's game against the Heat and will not return, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

That fact that it's being listed as just a bruise is encouraging that the injury isn't overly serious, though it's unclear at this point if Gallinari could potentially miss more time. Tentatively consider him questionable for Tuesday's game against the Spurs and another update should be provided following Monday's practice. Gallinari finished Sunday's matchup with six points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound, one assist and one turnover across 13 minutes.

Gallinari (undisclosed) will play during Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, Elliott Teaford of the Torrance Daily Breeze reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gallinari missed Friday's practice for reasons unknown to even his coach, so there was some question surrounding his status for Saturday's contest. While the veteran didn't provide any information on the absence itself, he noted that he'll play against the Grizzlies.

Gallinari did not participate in Friday's practice and coach Doc Rivers is unsure why, Elliott Teaford of the Torrance Daily Breeze reports.

EDGE Analysis

The situation is a bit strange considering coach Rivers doesn't know why his player wasn't present and the team has a game Saturday. Until further notice, Gallinari should be considered questionable for the contest.

Gallinari produced 14 points (5-10 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one steal across 26 minutes in Wednesday's 119-98 win over the Mavericks.

EDGE Analysis

Gallinari followed up with season-best 19-point tally in Monday's blowout loss to the Warriors by turning in another 50 percent effort from the field. The nine-year veteran's improvement from the field over the last two games has been a welcome sight, considering he'd shot 30.8 percent or worse in four of his first five games of the season. Gallinari's fantasy production figures to fluctuate given on how sharp his shot is, but he's also capable of offering solid numbers in the rebounding and assist categories.
