Revealed earlier today via press release, Clippers shooting guard Reggie Bullock will not be participating in the 2014 Las Vegas Summer League.
Bullock, who appeared in 43 games for the Clippers last season averaged 2.7 points and 1.3 rebounds over 9.2 minutes of play, will not participate due to rehabilitation for right quad soreness he experienced during the 2013-14 season.
Drafted 25th overall in the 2013 NBA Draft as a 3-and-D prospect out of North Carolina, Bullock’s rookie season was a flurry of up and downs.
First appearing in the 2013 Vegas Summer League tournament, Bullock appeared in five games, averaging 18 points per game on 42 percent shooting along with 4.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists.
Once the regular season began, Bullock found himself low on the depth chart behind the likes of J.J. Redick, Jamal Crawford, Matt Barnes, and Jared Dudley. But injury to the wing unit opened up a path for Bullock to prove himself on the NBA stage, displaying his defensive prowess in the process. A sprained left ankle suffered in early December against the Cleveland Cavaliers forced the rookie out of the lineup, never finding consistent minutes upon his return.
On March 16th in a win against the Cavaliers, Bullock scored a career-high 14 points (5-9 FG, 2-3 3P) in 26 minutes of play.
Bullock will join 2014 1st round pick C.J. Wilcox on the Summer League inactive list as he too is sitting as an injury precaution.
“We would obviously love for both Reggie and C.J. to play in Summer League,” said Clippers head coach Doc Rivers. “However, we want to take a conservative approach in their rehab process and make sure they are fully healthy and ready to go for the start of training camp.”
