The LA Clippers won't have Ivica Zubac for the second half on Sunday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves in their Western Conference showdown.

Together with Zubac, the Clippers have listed sophomore big man Moussa Diabate in their injury report. Diabate is out with a right-hand metacarpal fracture. Luckily for the team, the stars are available. Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, James Harden and Russell Westbrook all played.

What happened to Ivica Zubac?

According to the Clippers, Ivica Zubac has been listed as out due to calf tightness. Zubac started the game but had to leave after playing 12 minutes. Mason Plumlee and Daniel Theis will play for the rest of the game.

The stars will get chances to crash the boards against the Wolves. However, with the twin towers of Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns, that could prove to be a daunting task.
