MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Chris Kaman is back with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Coach Vinny Del Negro said the 7-footer would play 10 to 15 minutes off the bench in Wednesday’s game at Minnesota, now that his sprained left ankle is finally healed to the point where he’s able to take the floor.

Kaman first got hurt Nov. 9 against New Orleans, returned for two games and aggravated the injury Dec. 5 against Portland. He missed 45 games in all.

With four games in five nights after the All-Star break, the Clippers want to give Kaman some rest over the weekend before increasing his time.

Del Negro also said the team hopes to have scoring leader Eric Gordon back next week after the break. He sprained his right wrist when he fell Jan. 22 against Golden State.
