Default Are the Clippers injury tanking already?

I as a Heat fan acknowledge that there were players that could have possibly played through their injuries if we'd been in playoff contention, namely Jason Williams, Udonis Haslem & Shawn Marion (Wade & Wright were really messed up).

It looks like Clippers are almost setting up to do the same thing. Do you think they SHOULD injury tank?

In my eyes it makes perfect sense. Then when everyone is healthy for the start of the 2009/10 season, and other teams are scrambling for expiring contracts, trade Camby for either depth or a better starting piece. All while still getting a high lottery pick.

Baron and Camby are coming back this weekend and Zbo is expected back next week so I think they should just play hard and get some of that team chemistry going

As a fan it makes I can see why they would.
As a season ticket holder, I better get free seats next season.
As the nba, Do the clippers like heavy finds if work leaks?

I wasn't aware there was a timetable for their return in the near future... if that's the case, then they should just play their best game, othewise if we're seeing near the trade deadline and they aren't all fully healthy, they might as well hang it up.

They'd be getting some more development out of Gordon, Taylor, Thornton & Jordan, all while picking up a high lottery pick, and ensure their veteran core is fully, fully healthy for the next season.
