Darren Collison's job when Chris Paul sat out 18 games because of a separated right shoulder was to help the Clippers stay the course without their All-Star point guard. Collison did, leaving Clippers Coach Doc Rivers to say they "weathered the storm" with Paul down. Paul was back in the starting lineup Sunday night against the Philadelphia 76ers and Collison was back playing with the second unit. "DC was the key," Rivers said. "He logged a lot of minutes. Some of the things that he was doing well for us he couldn't do anymore.

Before the Clippers started their shoot-around Monday, Darren Collison and J.J. Redick took the court to get in some shots. Collison has been gutting it out with a sprained left big toe. Redick has been dealing with back spasms, a bruised left knee and a sore right shoulder. But both Collison and Redick were hoping to play Monday night against the Milwaukee Bucks in the last game of the Clippers' seven-game trip. “I would say with either one of those, I couldn't tell you if they are going to play,” Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said.

Clippers point guard Darren Collison is not going to let a sprained left big toe stop him from suiting up against the Chicago Bulls Friday night at the United Center. “Yeah, I'm playing,” Collison said at the Clippers' shoot-around Friday morning, before doing some light shooting with associate head coach Alvin Gentry. Collison was injured Saturday night against the Indiana Pacers, but has played the last two games, at Detroit and Charlotte, with varying degrees of success.

CHICAGO - Though Darren Collison has struggled with a left big toe sprain and Clippers Coach Doc Rivers has considered resting his starting point guard, Collison still wants to play. The Clippers didn't practice Thursday, giving the 6-foot-1 Collison some time to rest his injury before Los Angeles plays the Chicago Bulls on Friday night. But after Wednesday night's game in Charlotte, N.C., and after Rivers talked about giving his point guard some time off, Collison seemed to be begging to stay on the court.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Darren Collison limped out of the training room to his locker and plopped his weary body into a chair, his sprained left big toe now the biggest worry the Clippers have to face. Collison gutted through "some discomfort" for 29 minutes, 50 seconds during the Clippers' tough 95-91 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night at the Time Warner Cable Arena. He was forced to sit the final 4:28 of the game, forced to watch the Clippers tie the score at 89-89 on a shot by Jamal Crawford (20 points)

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Clippers point guard Darren Collison said that if resting was a realistic option, he "probably would have sat out [some] games" rather than continue to play with a painful sprain of his left big toe. But Collison is the starter because All-Star point guard Chris Paul is sidelined by a right shoulder separation, an injury that will keep him out another four weeks. And backup point guard Darius Morris is working on his second 10-day contract, which expires Saturday.

Clippers point guard Darren Collison said that if Chris Paul were healthy that “I probably would have sat out” instead of playing Monday at Detroit with a sprained left big toe that still “hurts” a lot. But starting point guard Paul remains out with a shoulder separation, and the Clippers need Collison to run the show. Collison said he wasn't going to practice Tuesday, but “I'm definitely playing” Wednesday when the Clippers play at the Charlotte Bobcats. “I'm trying to think positive,” Collison said.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Even though the Clippers didn't practice when they arrived here Sunday afternoon, the team announced that three newly injured players would play Monday against the Detroit Pistons. Starting guard J.J. Redick suffered a bruised left knee in the first quarter against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night, but he continued to play and will play against the Pistons. So will starting point guard Darren Collison, who suffered a sprained left big toe in the first half but also kept playing, and key reserve small forward Matt Barnes, who said he suffered a "bad sprain" of his left thumb but didn't stop playing.

J.J. Redick went down in the first quarter holding his left knee, which turned out to have sustained a bruise that required him to wear a black protective sleeve the rest of the game. Darren Collison sat in his chair with ice on his left foot, trying to get the pain from a sprained left big toe to go away. Matt Barnes sat in his chair looking at his swollen left thumb. Barnes said the X-rays that were taken after the game were negative. So there you have it, more injuries for the Clippers to deal with.
