Ivica Zubac has been ruled out ahead of game six of the Western Conference finals series between the Clippers and Suns on Wednesday.
This will be the second straight game Zubac has missed. The Clippers will continue to run out a lot of small ball, while DeMarcus Cousins should once again see more playing time as well.
Ivica Zubac was ruled out ahead of game five of the Clippers Western Conference finals series against the Suns.
DeMarcus Cousins should step into a bigger role as the Clippers face elimination Monday night. Marcus Morris might also be needed a little more as well.
Ivica Zubac totaled 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 FT), fourteen rebounds, one assist, and one steal in the Clippers’ 84-80 loss to the Suns on Saturday.
Zubac will look to set the tone after the Clippers’ loss to the Suns in Game Four of the Western Conference Finals. He has been a great fantasy asset this series and doesn't show any signs of slowing down. Even though the rebound opportunities may be a tad scarce in this one, his ability to play physically and get to the charity stripe creates a great stream of value to enhance his overall production. It could be a fantastic night for Zubac in this one as the team will need to control the paint if they hope to disrupt the game script of the Suns. DeAndre Ayton has been able to do what he wants up to this point but could see some additional resistance tonight, leading to a less than optimum outcome. Zubac could be the difference-maker on tonight's slate.
Ivica Zubac totaled 14 points (4-5 FG, 6-6 FT), eleven rebounds, and one block in the Clippers’ 104-103 loss to the Suns on Tuesday.
Zubac looks to build on his strong performance after the Clippers' loss to the Suns in Game Two of the Western Conference Finals. If leveraged by the Clippers as a more significant strategic asset for the team's cause, Zubac could become a game-changer not just for the team's playoff hopes but lineups nationwide. He does have a less nuanced scale of performance that is more black and white than shades of grey, which could be a detriment to your lineup, but could also be worth the risk if he is given a chance to add his “foot-print” to this series.
Ivica Zubac scored 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-2 FT) with 10 rebounds, three assists, and one block over 30 minutes as the Clippers took down the Raptors 115-96 on Tuesday.
Zubac played a big game on Tuesday, notching his first double-double since April 14. He shot 66-percent from the field, right around his season average (65%). The 24-year-old big man has filled in nicely for the injured Serge Ibaka over the last two months and that should benefit the Clippers tremendously come playoff time.
