Los Angeles Clippers center Mason Plumlee is expected to be sidelined for as long as two months with an MCL sprain in his knee, league sources said.
Plumlee and Julius Randle collided during the Clippers’ 111-97 loss to the New York Knicks on Monday at Madison Square Garden. Plumlee left the game with 4:10 remaining in the third quarter.
The Clippers acquired Plumlee in February when they traded guard Reggie Jackson, a 2028 second-round draft pick and cash considerations to the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for Plumlee. In six games this season, Plumlee averaged 5.0 points and 5.5 rebounds in 17 minutes per game.
