Just as we were talking about how fun it's been to watch the Los Angeles Clippers, things went from bad to worse for the Clips on Tuesday as we learned that Eric Gordon will miss the next 3-4 weeks with a small bone fracture in his shooting hand.

Gordon, who has been unbelievable this season averaging 24.1 points, 2.0 threes, 4.5 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game, will be replaced in the starting lineup by a familiar name among fantasy circles, Randy Foye. On Tuesday night Foye played a decent game, scoring 14 points with two threes and four assists in just over 28 minutes. At this point, he's an add in most 12-team leagues.

Two seasons ago as a starter in Minnesota, Foye averaged 16 points, 1.6 threes, 4.3 assists, 3.1 rebounds and a steal per game in 35 minutes. I'm not sure he'll reach those levels as the starting two-guard with the Clippers, but he might come pretty close. I think we'll also see Eric Bledsoe get some decent run, though he's more of a deep-league add than anything.

Baron Davis will be expected to take over a bit of the scoring load for the Clips, but as we know, with Davis getting more shots that only means that his FG% will likely dip below 40 percent. That's a tough pill to swallow.

In somewhat better news for the Clippers, Blake Griffin will most likely not miss any time after falling hard on his elbow Tuesday against the Mavs. He's listed as questionable for Wednesday night, but I have to believe that he'll give it a go. Make sure to follow the updates throughout the day if you're in a daily league.
