LOS ANGELES -- Clippers backup center Zeljko Rebraca has been diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat and is sidelined indefinitely, the team said Thursday.

The diagnosis was made following the Clippers' 103-100 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night. Rebraca was admitted to Centinela Hospital Medical Center in nearby Inglewood, where he was undergoing further tests Thursday.

Rebraca has played in 10 of the Clippers' 11 games and is averaging 4.7 points and 2.5 rebounds in 14.3 minutes. He had four points and a rebound in 10 minutes Wednesday night.

The Pacific Division-leading Clippers (9-2) play at Denver against the Northwest Division-leading Nuggets (7-6) on Friday night.
