While the rest of the Los Angeles Clippers team is getting to it in training camp, Reggie Bullock has been sitting due to an injury.
Reggie Bullock (sore right knee) still not practicing.

This is the second straight practice Bullock has missed due to his knee.
There hasn’t been any indication from the team or reporters who are at training camp that Bullock’s knee injury is serious. Bullock has had a run in with knee troubles before during his time at the University of North Carolina. In 2011 the then-freshmen had his season ended early due to tearing the lateral meniscus in his left knee.
The Los Angeles Clippers are extremely deep on the wings with Jamal Crawford, J.J. Redick, Matt Barnes and Jared Dudley most likely to soak up most of the minutes, but a good training camp would have put Bullock in a nice position to sneak in minutes here and there. With no reps in camp, Bullocks’ minutes will now come via blowouts, injury or in a Bakersfield Jam jersey.
In three days (October 7th) the Clippers will take on the Portland Trailblazers in the club’s first preseason game. If Bullock’s knee issue disappears this will be the proper stage for him to display his talents and impress the coaching staff.
