Los Angeles Clippers

Western Pacific

Fantasy Impact: The 31-year-old forward was a valuable role player for the Clippers this season and was one the Clippers wanted to bring back into the fold next year. With Paul George and Kawhi Leonard potentially back healthy next season, the Clippers will look to make some noise in the Western Conference.

Fantasy Impact: Another blow to the Clippers chances, who will be without leading scorer Paul George and Kennard for the win-and-in contest.

Clippers F Paul George has entered health and safety protocols and will miss Friday's Play-In Tournament game against New Orleans according to ESPN Senior NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is obviously horrible timing for a Clippers team with their season hanging in the balance Friday against New Orleans. Reggie Jackson and Norman Powell will be asked to shoulder the load while Terence Mann, Amir Coffey and Luke Kennard (hamstring) should all see increased roles, as well, with George out. Even if the Clippers win, George’s status for a potential Game 1 in Phoenix is in question too.

Fantasy Impact: Batum missed Sunday's regular season finale, but is good to go for the play-in game Tuesday. The veteran forward has started 54 of 59 games this year and should reclaim his starting power forward spot Tuesday. Robert Covington would presumably move back to the bench with Batum returning.

Ivica Zubac put up 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, and two blocks in the win over the Suns.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran big put up a double-double with ease en route to a win for the Clippers. He remains one of the most consistent performers on the team and it should stay that way as the Clips finish their regular season.

Norman Powell delivered 24 points (6-10 FG< 3-4 3PT, 9-10 FT), four rebounds, and a block in just 23 minutes off the bench.

Fantasy Impact: Powell was great for LA in this one in his limited playing time. With PG and Reggie Jackson not scoring too much, he stepped up in a big way for the Clips. He will remain a vital part to the offense.

According to Tommy Azarly, Kawhi Leonard was seen shooting at practice on Tuesday. (Source: Tommy Azarly)

Fantasy Impact: Leonard, who suffered a torn ACL last year during the playoffs, has yet to see a status update on his knee this season. The veteran's rehab has been kept under wraps by the team, but on Tuesday was seen shooting and working out off to the side at Clippers practice. It's unclear if he will return at any point this season as the Clippers will fight for their life in the play-in game that is upcoming.

Reggie Jackson recorded 11 points (4-19 FG, 1-9 3PT, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and one block in 33 minutes in Sunday's win over the Pelicans.

Fantasy Impact: On a terrible shooting night, Jackson still managed to record his first double-double since Feb 17. The Boston College product continues to be the workhorse point guard for the Clippers as he averaged 32.4 minutes per game in March. The 31-year-old will look to find his shooting touch when the Clippers host the Suns on Wednesday.

Marcus Morris Sr. recorded 22 points (8-13 FG, 4-6 3PT, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 27 minutes in Sunday's win over the Pelicans.

Fantasy Impact: Morris Sr. is making it difficult to assess his fantasy value as of late. The Kansas product has a combined 42 points in his last two outings compared to a combined five points in the previous two games before that. The veteran forward needs to have a good shooting night in order to provide managers with any type of value. The 32-year-old will look to keep his scoring numbers up when the Clippers host the Suns on Wednesday.

Amir Coffey finished with 32 points (10-16 FG, 7-7 FT, 5-9 3-PT), six boards, seven assists and four steals on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Amir Coffey and Robert Covington both set career-highs on Friday, as the Clippers bested the Bucks, 153-119. Both teams rested several starters, which thrusted Coffey into a high-usage role on offence. He also logged four steals, which put the finishing touch a huge fantasy night. Coffey will likely head back to his spot on the second-unit when the Clippers battle New Orleans on Sunday.

Isaiah Hartenstein came off the bench to score 14 points and pull down 10 rebounds in 27 minutes on Friday. The big man shot 6-for-9 from the floor including one three-pointer while adding five assists, a steal, and a block during the win.

Fantasy Impact: Hartenstein has had a larger role since the All-Star break playing over 21 minutes per game while putting up 10.1 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 3.4 assists in 17 games. He could be worth a look as a cheap DFS option down the stretch.

Terance Mann put in 24 points (7-10 FG, 0-2 3PT, 10-12 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, and a block in the losing effort.

Fantasy Impact: Mann came off the bench and played great for LA. He led all Clippers in scoring and nearly put up a double-double. Mann will be a huge role player for the Clips as they look to increase the playoff seeding.

Per Shams, Los Angeles Clippers F Serge Ibaka has been traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in a four team deal. (Source: Shams Charania on twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ibaka last played against the Bucks on Sunday and then proceeded to sit out of Tuesday's tilt which was likely due to the Clippers shopping him. The veteran big man will bring a boost to the Bucks front court as Brook Lopez remains out and he should at least see around 20 minutes of the bench but for now the big man should remain on waivers until it is truly seen how much the Bucks' will use him.

Per Law Murray, Jay Scrubb (turf toe, right foot) will have season-ending surgery on Wednesday. (Source: Law Murray)

Fantasy Impact: On Wednesday, news dropped that the Clippers two-way guard Jay Scrubb will undergo season-ending surgery on his foot. The young guard has missed the previous four games with the injury. His absence won't mean much with the Clippers acquiring both Normal Powell and Robert Covington last Friday.

According to the NBA Injury Report, Eric Bledsoe has been ruled out Tuesday vs the Magic. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Early on Friday afternoon, the Clippers made the move to trade veteran guard Eric Bledsoe to the Blazers. Despite playing in LA, the veteran now is dealing with an Achilles injury that cost him Monday's practice and Tuesday's game. The minutes he would have "likely" played will shift over to Tony Snell and CJ Ellerby.

Per Casey Holdahl, Keon Johnson is questionable Saturday night in his potential Blazers debut versus the Bucks. (Source: Casey Holdahl on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Johnson will be looking for a fresh start in Portland. The rookie only averaged nine minutes and 3.5 points per game this season on the Clippers.

Per Casey Holdahl, Justise Winslow is questionable Saturday night in his potential Blazers debut versus the Bucks. (Source: Casey Holdahl on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Winslow will be looking for a fresh start in Portland. The Duke product only averaged 12.9 minutes this season on the Clippers. Keep an eye on his usage on the Trail Blazers.

Brandon Boston Jr. drops 19 points (8-14 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-2 FT) 5 rebounds, 2 assists in win over Hornets.

Fantasy Impact: Boston Jr. had arguably the best game of the night, as he finished with a +31 +/-. In what was his monthly high in points, we cannot expect to see an outing like this again for him. This young player is someone to keep an eye on in the future, though.
