Posted Nov 16, 2013 10:00 PM

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The injury-riddled Brooklyn Nets will be without four starters when they play the Los Angeles Clippers.

Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez, Paul Pierce and Deron Williams all were injured for Saturday night's game at Staples Center.

That left Joe Johnson as the only regular starter in the lineup.

Reserve forward Andrei Kirilenko was out because of back spasms.

Williams hurt his left ankle in the first quarter of Friday night's overtime win in Phoenix. Pierce has a groin injury, while Garnett and Lopez have ankle injuries.
