Kittles placed on injured list

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) – The Los Angeles Clippers placed guard
Kerry Kittles on the injured list Saturday with a degenerative disc in his
lower back.

Kittles has played in only 11 games this season and is averaging 6.3 points
and 2.9 rebounds per outing. The Villanova product has now been on the IL
three times this season with both back and knee problems.

To fill Kittles’ spot on the roster, the Clippers activated rookie guard Shaun
Livingston from the IL. Livingston, who had been out since November 23rd with
a dislocated right patella kneecap, is averaging 5.0 points and 2.6 assists
this season.

The fourth overall selection in the 2004 NBA Draft, Livingston had missed the
last 39 games, but will be in uniform when Los Angeles visits Toronto on
Sunday night.
