Earl Clark Out Of Action With Groin Injury

It was always going to be an uphill battle for Earl Clark to find minutes in Mike Brown’s rotation this season. The former first round pick was barely getting any burn during the preseason so you know that if he made the final cut it would be a lot of Jason Kaponoing at the end of the bench.

But that is all a moot point for now. Clark has been indefinitely ruled out due to a strained groin. You can begin wincing now if you weren’t already after having read the headline of this post.

The news is troubling with regards to depth as the Lake Show is now down both Clark and Jordan Hill for what would appear to be the remainder of the preseason.
