Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers told reporters that Hedo Turkoglu will miss Friday's Game 3 against the Oklahoma City Thunder, and may be out until the next round of the playoffs with a back injury, reports Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports.

Turkoglu injured his back after colliding with David Lee of the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 on the Clippers opening playoff series, and has yet to return to the court.

The 13-year vet Was waived by the Orlando Magic and has averaged just ten minutes a game since being picked up by the Los Angeles Clippers in January.
