The reeling Los Angeles Clippers will be without guard Baron Davis when they face the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday, the team announced Monday.

Davis will not join the Clippers on their upcoming three-game road trip, which also includes stops in Toronto and Denver, due to back spasms.

Davis is averaging 15.2 points and a team-leading 7.9 assists in 71 games this season.

Los Angeles beat visiting Milwaukee 101-93 on March 17. But that's one of only two wins in the Clippers' last 13 games, with the other a 99-93 victory at Houston on Thursday behind 25 points from reserve Craig Smith.

Los Angeles quickly blew a chance to build any momentum. It shot 37.8 percent Sunday against visiting Golden State and was outscored 40-14 in the second quarter en route to a 121-103 loss.
