The LA Clippers ruled Serge Ibaka out of Monday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks while he deals with lower back tightness.

The Clippers will play the first of consecutive games in Dallas without two starters, as Patrick Beverley (knee soreness) did not make the trip.

Ibaka did not return after leaving in the second half of the Clippers’ 135-115 loss Sunday at New Orleans. Ivica Zubac will start in his place Monday.

Clippers coach Ty Lue shook up his starting lineup with another move, inserting Marcus Morris Sr. in place of Nic Batum after his team entered Monday having lost five of its previous seven games.
