Adding Alternates for Clash

So Clash is supposedly made to mirror LCS for your average player. But in the LCS pro teams have alternates in emergency cases. I have a team member who can't play tomorrow. And from what I can tell, we are now SOL for every Sunday. That's half of the clash games for the entire duration of the multi-week event. Seems kinda BS to me, but I would like your thoughts on this... Is not having alternates legitimate for any feasible reason?
