JaVale McGee will again start at center on Saturday vs. OKC.

Head coach Steve Kerr stated he wanted to shake up his starting lineup and had McGee start in place of Zaza Pachulia on Thursday. McGee finished with six points, four rebounds and one steal over 14 minutes in the win over the Clippers. Zaza had six points in seven minutes off the bench. It's safe to assume we'll see a similar allotment of minutes on Saturday night.

X-rays on Danilo Gallinari's bruised right hand came back negative, and Gallinari is hopeful that he will be able to play Friday night vs. Phoenix.

Gallinari suffered the injury in Thursday's loss to the Warriors. Gallo said there was some swelling in the hand, so we'll see how it responds. We may not get an update until Friday afternoon. If Gallinari is unable to play, Tyrone Wallace and Wes Johnson would soak up additional minutes.

DeAndre Jordan notched a 16-point, 14-board double-double during Thursday's loss to the Warriors, adding three assists, three steals, one block and four turnovers in 32 minutes.

As per usual, Jordan did an excellent job on the glass, creating numerous second-chance opportunities for the Clippers, and as an added bonus he finished 6-of-6 from the charity stripe. Tobias Harris was also solid, finishing with 22 points, two triples, six boards, five assists, one steal and three turnovers across 36 minutes, but ultimately, it was not enough to pull out a win over the Warriors.

Danilo Gallinari went 5-of-15 from the field and 4-of-6 from the stripe on his way to 15 points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, two assists and one turnover in Thursday's loss to the Warriors.

Gallinari fell victim to some suffocating defense from both Kevin Durant and Draymond Green in this one, and he was also seen being tended to by the Clippers’ trainer on the bench towards the end of the game. He didn’t appear to suffer an obvious injury while he was out there, but it also doesn’t take much to force The Rooster to the sidelines, and with the Clippers on a back-to-back, we’re going to have to consider him questionable for Friday’s game vs. Phoenix.
Feb 23 - 2:19 AM

Lou Williams posted a 21-point, 12-assist double-double during Thursday's loss to the Warriors, adding two 3-pointers, one rebound, one steal and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

Williams struggled to get his shot to drop for much of the game, but he got hot during crunch time, hitting a plethora of ridiculous shots for the Clippers to keep the game close. This was also Sweet Lou's fourth 10+ assist game of the season, which is a feat he had accomplished just once through his first 12 years in the league.
Feb 23 - 2:18 AM

Austin Rivers scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting Thursday, to go with two 3-pointers, three rebounds, five assists, one steal and zero turnovers in 38 minutes.

Rivers did help the Clippers go on a few runs to help keep the game competitive, and he should be looking at some increased opportunity while Avery Bradley (hernia) is out. Unfortunately, he also went just 2-of-6 from the charity stripe, and poor free throw shooting has been a major issue for him this season. He's a more attractive guy to own for those employing a free throw punting strategy.
Feb 23 - 2:14 AM

Milos Teodosic scored 14 points on 4-of-11 shooting Thursday, to go with four 3-pointers, one rebound, two assists, one steal and three turnovers in 28 minutes.

Teodosic got the start with Avery Bradley (athletic pubalgia) unavailable, but he was regularly roasted by Stephen Curry and came off the bench to begin the second half behind Tyrone Wallace. Wallace finished with eight points, three boards, three assists and two steals over 19 minutes of action, but neither of these guys are worth owning in 12-team leagues with 13 roster spots.
Feb 23 - 2:13 AM

Zaza Pachulia saw just seven minutes off the bench on Thursday, finishing with six points and one assist in a win over the Clippers.

Head coach Steve Kerr confirmed after the game that Pachulia would remain with the second unit for Saturday's game against the Thunder, so the reserve role wasn't simply a matchup-based move. He wasn't worth owning as a starter, anyway, but it seems there's a possibility that he could drop from the rotation entirely once Jordan Bell (ankle) gets back out there. Leave him on the wire.
