08:08 AM ET 10.18 | Coming off a few road games in China, Vinny Del Negro had a plan Wendesday that included limiting minutes in the Clippers' fourth exhibition game. [Del Negro] also held out Lamar Odom and Grant Hill because of nagging injuries and for rest. ... For Odom, weight and poor conditioning are issues. Del Negro said Odom's knees are bothering him and that playing the 6-10 forward against the Jazz probably would have set him back. "He's got to work through some conditioning things and some health things right now, which he's doing," Del Negro said. "Yeah, I wish he was in a little bit better conditioning, and he wishes he was. But he's just got to continue to work every day and I'm sure he'll get there eventually."
