Rebraca out indefinitely with irregular heartbeat

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.
