LOS ANGELES, CA - NOVEMBER 21, 2021: Clippers Paul George looks at the video board with other players and coaches to see if the foul called against Terance Mann will be overturned in the second half at Staples Center on November 21, 20201 in Los Angeles, California.

Two days after a Clippers player entered the league’s COVID-19 protocols, the team abruptly canceled its scheduled shootaround at its Playa Vista practice facility Tuesday for “precautionary reasons related to health and safety protocols,” the team announced.

The Clippers are scheduled to face Dallas at Staples Center on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.

On the Clippers’ flight from New Orleans to Los Angeles late Friday night was starting forward Nicolas Batum. Batum was initially ruled out for Sunday’s game against Dallas because of an illness. His condition was subsequently revised to the more serious level of entering the league’s protocols adopted to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

On Sunday, coach Tyronn Lue indicated the team had been tested for COVID before the game and added that Batum is not expected to return soon amid a six-game homestand.

“I’m not sure the days but I expect him to be out for [a while],” Lue said. “I’m not sure the timetable, though.”

Asked whether any additional players or staffers had entered the league’s health and safety protocols, a team spokesman did not immediately respond Tuesday.
