Fantasy Impact: The Suns continue to do what they can to fill out the bench around Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal. Gordon should help with the shooting and scoring off the bench for the Suns next season.

Russell Westbrook has agreed on a two-year, nearly $8M deal to stay with the Clippers. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Westbrook averaged over 15 points and seven assists across 21 games with the Clippers to close last season. He should continue to command a similar role alongside Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. His efficiency from the field took a huge step forward, shooting 49 percent from the field compared to 42 percent across 52 games with the Lakers.

Clippers president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said Kawhi Leonard underwent a "clean up procedure" in early June. (Source: Justin Russo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Leonard suffered a torn meniscus back in April, which caused him to miss the last few games of the playoff series against the Suns. It is reportedly an 8-week recovery from time of surgery to get back onto the court, which should still give him enough time to be fully healthy by the start of next season.

Paul George (knee sprain) is likely out for the entirety of the Clippers first round series against the Suns. (Source: ESPN )

Fantasy Impact: George suffered the injury back in late March and seemed to be progressing but it appears he is not improving fast enough. The Clippers will now rely on Kawhi Leonard and Russell Westbrook to get them past Kevin Durant and the Suns. Eric Gordon has been in the starting lineup with George out, but the man to watch for the Clippers is Norman Powell, who has been on fire in recent games.

Fantasy Impact: It is a positive sign for the status of Morris after missing the final seven games of the regular season. He should re-enter the starting lineup if healthy. Otherwise, Nicolas Batum will remain in the starting lineup for the Clippers in Game 1 against the Suns.

Norman Powell (shoulder) will make his return for Wednesday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: A shoulder injury has left Powell sidelined for multiple consecutive weeks at this point, but he will finally be well enough to make his return for Los Angeles' game against Memphis on Wednesday. His return to the lineup likely spells less work for Eric Gordon and Bones Hyland moving forward.

Ivica Zubac posted a double-double for the Clippers Saturday night, grabbing 16 rebounds and scoring 16 points (7-16 FG, 2-2 FT) while also blocking two shots in a 113-108 loss to the Magic.

Fantasy Impact: Zubac has offered decent scoring and rebounding output of late for the Clippers, scoring at least 16 points and grabbing at least nine rebounds in three of his last five games. The 26-year-old big man has provided a consistent floor for fantasy owners for much of the season, averaging 10.2 rebounds and 10.5 points per game while carrying a 14.7% usage rate so far this season.

The Los Angeles Clippers have traded Reggie Jackson to the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for Mason Plumlee. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jackson immediately slots in as the backup to starting point guard LaMelo Ball and should carve out a decent role after watching his minutes diminish with the Clippers.

The Memphis Grizzlies have acquired Luke Kennard in a multi-team deal involving John Wall, Eric Gordon, and Danny Green according to Shams Charania. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Kennard gives Memphis a legitimate three-point shooter that may eat into minutes of Ziare Williams and Dillon Brooks in the team’s rotation. Fantasy owners should temper expectations until they see how significant of a role Kennard will have with the Grizzlies.

John Wall (abdomen) remains out for Tuesday's contest against the Chicago Bulls. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Wall has been out for a couple of weeks because of an abdomen injury, and he will remain out for Tuesday's game. It's unclear when he will be well enough to return, but the team hopes it will be sooner rather than later. Nicolas Batum should continue to get more work for however long the veteran remains out moving forward.

Robert Covington (personal) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Chicago Bulls. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Covington is now dealing with a personal issue that will leave him questionable for Tuesday. The details of the issue are unknown, but it could be enough to knock him out for a game or two. He doesn't normally get a lot of work, but his absence could still mean more work for Marcus Morris Sr (rib).

Moussa Diabate has been ruled out for Tuesday’s game against the 76ers due to a non-COVID-19 illness. (Source: NBA Injury Report via

Fantasy Impact: Diabate will miss at least one more game due to a non-COVID-19 illness. The rookie out of Michigan has yet to carve out a significant role in the Clippers’ rotation, so his absence will have no major fantasy impact.

Nicolas Batum (ankle) is considered questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Batum has missed two-straight games because of a left-ankle sprain, but he will have a chance to make his return to the court for Sunday's game. The team will likely make a decision about his availability closer to game time, and both Luke Kennard (calf) and John Wall would be in line for more work if he remains out on Sunday.

Terance Mann (concussion) is available to play in Saturday's game against the Washington Wizards. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Mann was dealing with a concussion that forced him to miss a game, but he has been cleared and is set to play in Saturday's game. He's likely to not have any limitations on his minutes, and he may see some additional work in the absence of Reggie Jackson (rest).
