Ben McLemore posted 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3PT), seven rebounds, three assists, one block, one steal, and two turnovers in 17 minutes during Friday's win over the Pistons.
McLemore only saw 17 minutes in this one, which is discouraging given John Wall's injury. He was able to produce respectable numbers given the small amount of playing time, however, as he fell three rebounds shy of recording his first double-double of the season. With Sterling Brown, Jae'Sean Tate, and David Nwaba all seeing more playing time than McLemore at the moment, he's better left on the waivers. Next up is Saturday's game against the Mavericks.
Ben McLemore put up 21 points (7-14 FG, 4-7 3PT, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, one assist, two steals, and one turnover in 38 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Spurs.
This was by far McLemore's best game of the season as he started and played 38 minutes for the short-handed Rockets. He'll retain some fantasy value as long as he's seeing this kind of playing time and role, though that should start to diminish as Houston begins getting some guys back in the lineup. If the Rockets are short-handed once again come Monday, McLemore has a great matchup against a weak Bulls defense.
Ben McLemore posted only three points (1-6 FG, 1-5 3PT), three rebounds, four assists and two turnovers in 21 minutes during Thursday's victory over the Spurs.
In lieu of the James Harden trade, McLemore was given the start with John Wall, Eric Gordon and Victor Oladipo unavailable to suit up. He was largely a disappointment as he struggled to find any sort of rhythm offensively. McLemore is mainly a three point marksman now a days and should be able to hold a role in the rotation even when Houston is fully healthy. He'll look to find his stroke in Saturday's rematch with the Spurs.
Ben McLemore posted 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-6 3PT), three rebounds, one assist, one steal and three turnovers in Tuesday's loss to the Lakers.
McLemore has been impressive in limited minutes since returning from the COVID-19 list as he's averaged 10.5 points and 3.3 three's in only 16.6 minutes per game. He will continue to be a good source of three's but won't be on the fantasy radar until he receives some more playing time. He'll look to stay in rhythm during Thursday's game against the Spurs.
Ben McLemore posted six points (2-6 FG, 2-6 3PT), one rebound, one assist and two turnovers in 17 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Lakers.
McLemore is still working his way back into playing shape after missing time due to landing on the COVID list to begin the year. He's really found a home here in Houston and offers a great source of three's and points when not under any restrictions. It will be interesting to see if he'll see an increase in playing time during Tuesday's rematch against the Lakers.
