RB Pierre Thomas (chest) is inactive for the Saints on Saturday.
Not a huge surprise here, but it does hurt the Saints' ability to pass the ball to a RB coming out of the backfield, something that Thomas has provided in getting the Saints to the postseason.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
Wesley Johnson will start for the Clippers on Monday.
With Paul Pierce resting on Monday, Wesley Johnson will draw his sixth start of the season. After being taken with the fourth pick of the 2010 draft, Johnson simply hasn't panned out. That being said, he's a very reliable rotation player and will most likely give the Clippers solid minutes on Monday. Analysis: James Grande
