The struggling Nets were able to grind out a win over the Suns in overtime on Friday, but they will be extremely shorthanded against the Clippers on Saturday, as Deron Williams, Paul Pierce and Brook Lopez are all out with injury, according to Newsday's Rod Boone.

Williams played only five minutes against the Suns after spraining his ankle. Shaun Livingston, who will start in his place on Saturday, scored 18 points off the bench.

Paul Pierce played 41 minutes on Friday but is battling a groin injury, and Brook Lopez, who scored a team-high 27 points on Friday, has an ankle injury. To make matters worse, Kevin Garnett is a game-time decision with a sprained right ankle.

The Nets (3-5) have lost three of their last four and their superstar-laden roster has yet to gel as the team had hoped.
