DALLAS (AP) — Tyson Chandler and Monta Ellis went to the locker room with injuries in the first 4 minutes of the Dallas Mavericks' game against the Los Angeles Clippers, who are without Blake Griffin.

Chandler injured his left ankle shortly before Ellis hurt his left hip. Both were doubtful to return.

Chandler was injured just 39 seconds into Monday night's game when he was fouled by Spencer Hawes on a layup attempt. He missed the second free throw and had to stay in the game until the next whistle about a minute later. He was replaced by Greg Smith.

It wasn't clear when Ellis got hurt, but he was replaced by Devin Harris with 8:03 left in the first quarter.

Griffin is out with a staph infection in his right elbow.
