Clippers' Jason Preston: Included on Summer League roster
Preston (foot) is listed on the Clippers' Summer League roster, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Preston's 2021-22 rookie campaign ended before it began due to a foot injury that required surgery in early October. The 22-year-old was nearing clearance for contact in early April, and his inclusion on the Summer League roster presumably indicates he's healthy enough to contribute.

The procedure will end up preventing Preston from playing at any point in the regular season, and while it's possible he's removed from the injury report if LA makes a deep playoff run, the 22-year-old likely wouldn't be called upon to play meaningful minutes, given his lengthy layoff.
