Los Angeles Clippers

Western Pacific

Marcus Morris finished with 16 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go along with five rebounds, two steals, and one assist over 36 minutes in the Clippers 126-111 win over the Mavericks.

Fantasy Impact: Don't look now but that's back-to-back 16 point games for Morris. He's strung together a couple solid performances but is still hard to trust for fantasy purposes. His routine inconsistency just don't make him a bankable DFS asset.

Landry Shamet ended up with five points (2-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three assists, one rebound, and one block across 27 minutes in the Clippers 126-111 victory over the Mavericks on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Patrick Beverley missed this game with a calf issue and it was Shamet, not Reggie Jackson, who started in his place. While Shamet didn't play all that well it's telling that he logged 27 minutes to Jackson's 15. Pat Bev is still day-to-day and is slated to miss at least one more game. Shamet and Jackson will continue to jockey for playing time but neither one is a hot fantasy commodity.

Lou Williams managed six points (3-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt) with three assists and two rebounds over 20 minutes as the Clippers took down the Mavericks 126-111 on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Lou Will hasn't made much of an impact in the two games since his return but he's clearly still getting his feet under him. He looked out of sync with the offense tonight, showing poor awareness when when he committed a shot-clock violation, which is a rare occurrence for an established scorer such as himself. Lou Will still has some time to work out the kinks. The Clips will need him locked and loaded for the post-season.

Ivica Zubac totaled 21 points (10-10 FG, 1-2 FT) with 15 rebounds, one assist, and one block across 24 minutes in the Clippers 126-11 win over the Mavericks on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: This was, no doubt, one of the best games of Zubac's career and it's just the second time that he's ever had consecutive double-doubles. He created a ton of the space in the paint and dominated the Mavs front court from start to finish. He's paying off in DFS for those who have been starting him as a low price center option as well.

Paul George racked up 24 points (10-21 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with seven rebounds and six assists over 37 minutes as the Clippers beat the Mavericks 126-11 on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: This game was a lot closer than the final score indicates but thanks to some clutch shooting by George down the stretch, the Clips pulled away for the win. Despite shooting 50-percent from three tonight, he only attempted four triples. After going 14-for-21 (66-percent) from three over the first two games since the restart, PG is 3-for-11 in the last two contests. Shooters shoot, though, so there will be plenty more attempts in the future. It's hard to find much to complain about as PG13 is averaging 26.3 points/per game since the restart. The locked in shooting guard is primed to keep it going on Saturday against the Blazers.

Kawhi Leonard finished with 29 points (10-23 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-7 FT) to go along with six rebounds, five assists, and one steal across 38 minutes minutes in the Clippers 126-111 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: The Clips were locked in a tight for the most of the night but Kawhi came through down the stretch, facilitating and scoring to lead his team to victory. He's now logged 33-plus minutes in three of the four games since the restart so you have to figure load management is coming soon. It's worth keeping tabs on his status prior to tip off, going forward, but he's paid big DFS dividends so far despite his hefty price tag. The Clippers next face the Blazers on Saturday.

According to Clippers head coach Doc Rivers, G Patrick Beverley (calf) could potentially be out "a couple of days, a couple of games" due to his sore left calf injury. (Source: Jovan Buha on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It's an unfortunate time for Beverley to miss time with Lou Williams and Landry Shamet still on a minutes restriction. We'll have more information on Beverley's recovery in the coming days, but he could miss several games going forward due to his calf injury.

Montrezl Harrell (personal reasons) is listed as out of ahead of Thursday's contest against the Dallas Mavericks. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Harrell has yet to play for the Clippers as he continues to tend to a personal matter outside of the bubble. There is no timetable for his return and he'll need to pass the quarantine protocols before suiting up. Joakim Noah and JaMychal Green are the near term replacements for Harrell while he's out.

Reggie Jackson scored five points (2-5 FG, 1-4 3Pt) with four rebounds and three assists across 23 minutes as the Clippers lost a close one to the Suns 117-115 on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Patrick Beverley started this game at point guard but left early with a calf issue and Jackson stepped in to fill the void. It's unknown if Beverley will miss any time, he's considered day-day for now. But if Jackson is thrust back into a starting role, barring Pat Bev missing time, and can get his minutes right then he becomes a decent dart throw in DFS.

Although JaMychal Green didn't start for the Clippers, he did lead the way in minutes at the power forward and center positions. Green played 29 minutes scoring eight points on 3-of-6 shooting, with two made three-pointers, four rebounds, and a block.

Fantasy Impact: Green should continue to see a larger role for the Clippers until Montrezl Harrell returns. Green did not capitalize on his opportunity, but did enough to earn another chance at 25 plus minutes. The Clippers seem to trust Green over Ivica Zubac and Marcus Morris, and Green has a higher fantasy ceiling than both of those players. If Harrell continues to miss games, Green is the only power forward or center worth considering in fantasy for the Clippers.

Joakim Noah refused to call it quits after suffering an unfortunate Achilles injury and now finds himself in a position to play and contribute to a championship contender in the Clippers. In speaking on Noah's contribution Coach Doc Rivers had this to say, "We need him to be a solid veteran player, we need him to be a leader as much as he can lead…and then really just to be ready when called upon…I think mentally, he's in the right space right now to be ready, so I think he will be." In responding to his teammate's contribution guard Rodney McGruder had this to say, "He's just bringing that energy every day …it's just the intensity and just the persistence that he plays with on the defensive end, how you always hear his voice. He's always yelling, he's always talking." With teammates Ivica Zubac and Montrezl Harrell not with the team, Noah's preparation looks as if it will need to be put to action for the upcoming scrimmages and "seeding" games. (Source: Andrew Greif of the LA Times)

Fantasy Impact: Noah this past year played in 42 contests and averaged 16.5 minutes of playing time, 7.1 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.7 blocks per game while shooting 51.6 percent from the field. When you look at his production and compare it to that of Zubac, they are not that far-off from one another, which should bode well for the Clippers. You mix Noah's comparable stats with his experience and leadership on the floor, and he could be a perfect fit for what the team needs as they make their run for the championship. From a fantasy standpoint, Noah would have made a solid value-play last year, especially in his last two months, where he averaged 21.3 minutes of playing time, 10.8 points, 7.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.0 blocks, and 0.5 steals. If he can reach that level of play while managing a consistent role in the rotation, Noah has the potential to be a rewarding option for your fantasy line-up, especially in DFS, given what you'll pay for him.

Terance Mann underwent hand surgery in March and said he is back “full time, full contact”. His role would be very minimal once the NBA restarts. (Source: Jovan Buha on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Mann has not played much this season. He is averaging 7.7 minutes, 1.6 points, 0.9 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per game. Since he is coming back from injury, his role will likely decrease.

Although it was originally reported that Amir Coffey did not make the trip to Orlando, that report was in error. Instead, it was Mfiondu Kabengele who did not travel to Orlando. (Source: Jovan Buha on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Although Coffey has not played much this season, he could still play a couple of minutes per game once the NBA restarts. Since the Clippers have a long line of depth, Coffey is towards the bottom of the rotation. Come playoff time it is likely he will not receive any playing time.

Doc Rivers announced that Johnathan Motley will not be joining the Clippers in Orlando once the NBA restarts. (Source: Jovan Buha on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Motley has not played a lot for the Clippers this season. He has spent more time with the Clippers' G League affiliate. Motley was not a significant player for the team and they will not regret their decision.

Jerome Robinson was traded from the Clippers to the Wizards on Thursday as part of a three-team, four player deal. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Robinson was part of a trade that sent Isaiah Thomas back to the Clippers, while the Knicks are receiving Moe Harkless and a first-round pick in exchange for Marcus Morris. The 22-year-guard is averaging 2.9 points, 1.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 0.5 triples across 42 games this season. Robinson should play a similar role for his new team. However, unless his new role significantly changes, he should not be owned in fantasy leagues.

Maurice Harkless has been traded to the Knicks as part of a deal that brings Marcus Morris to the Clippers. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Harkless was traded to the Knicks as part of the Marcus Morris deal to the Clippers. He started for the Clippers most of the season, but did not provide much in fantasy value. The 26-year old foward averaged 5.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.5 triples across 50 games this year. Harkless should the same amount of minutes for a rebuilding Knicks team, and can be added in deep-league formats.

Derrick Walton Jr. did not take the court Monday in the Clippers' 108-105 win over the Spurs.

Fantasy Impact: Walton Jr. hasn't played in any of the Clippers' last five contests, and he's unlikely to see more than a handful of minutes sporadically across the rest of the season barring injuries. The Michigan product has logged just 9.7 minutes across 23 appearances in 2019-20.
