Clippers coach Doc Rivers said after the team's morning shootaround that Turkoglu is ''not doing well enough'' to play in Thursday night's game. Turkoglu injured his back in the third quarter of the Clippers' 113-103 win over the Warriors on Tuesday night in Los Angeles.
Turkoglu was defending David Lee when he was knocked to the ground. Lee picked up an offensive foul on the play. Turkoglu lay writhing in pain during a timeout before being helped to the locker room.
The 35-year-old veteran is averaging 3.2 points and one rebound in 8.2 minutes per game in the series.
