Injury News: Maalik Wayns Tears Left Meniscus


Extremely bad news for Maalik Wayns as the point guard was fighting for a roster spot with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The injury that Wayns is dealing with occurred in last night’s loss to the Sacramento Kings.

At this points it’s unclear if the guard will remain on the team as the Clippers could opt for an able body in Brandon Davies or Lou Amundson to bolster up their front court.

During his lone season in the NBA, Wayns played for the Philadelphia 76ers and Rio Grande Valley Vipers (D-League) before becoming a full-time member of the Clippers after two ten-day contract stints. In six games played with the Clippers, mostly in garbage time, Wayns averaged 3.3 points and 1.2 assists on 43 percent shooting. He didn’t make an appearance in the teams six playoff games.

Maalik tweeted this after the Sacramento Kings game, referring to the road ahead after suffering his injury.
