Doc Rivers said that DeAndre Jordan sees himself as a star after his experience with Team USA in Rio.
"As good as he is, I don't think he's ever seen himself as one," Rivers said. "He's always been the third guy so he's looked at himself as a role player in some ways. Now he knows how good he is and I think any time you're around winning, it's important, and I think DJ now knows what winning looks like." Jordan was elite last season with 12.7 points, 13.8 rebounds and 2.3 blocks on 70.3 percent shooting from the field, and while he hit just 43.0 percent from the line, he was still a first-round stud if you take free throws out of the equation.

Doc Rivers believes DeAndre Jordan is primed to have a breakout season.

Rivers used Jordan's age and maturity level as evidence for what will allow him to blossom to his fullest as the rationale for his stance. After averaging 12.7 points, 13.8 rebounds and 2.3 blocks on 70.3 percent shooting last season, Rivers is clearly looking for his big man to take an even bigger step forward in 2016-17. Those numbers may be difficult to replicate if Blake Griffin (quad) can remain healthy, but it's obvious that the Clippers have made it a point to emphasize DJ's role ever since he decided to spurn Dallas in order to re-sign with Los Angeles.

DeAndre Jordan earned another start vs. Spain on Friday, tying the U.S. Olympic record with 16 rebounds while chipping in nine points, four blocks, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes.

Jordan played just 13 minutes as a starter in the quarterfinals, but he was terrific at both ends vs. Spain today. Mike Krzyzewski values his rim protection to set the tone defensively, but Jordan was also unstoppable on the glass and he took advantage of a few easy looks around the rim, finishing 4-of-6 from the field. He'll be a handful for whomever the U.S. faces in Sunday's Olympic finals.

DeAndre Jordan started Wednesday's game ahead of DeMarcus Cousins, but he finished with a modest two points and four rebounds in 13 minutes of action.

Team USA's offense began clicking once Coach K inserted some bench players including Cousins, who racked up 15 points on 6-of-10 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs, with a pair of rebounds and a pair of blocks. Jordan offers more rim protection for Team USA, and it wouldn't be shocking if he started again during Friday's semifinals game vs. Spain.

DeAndre Jordan is starting over DeMarcus Cousins against Argentina on Wednesday.

It's not a bad idea after USA sort of struggled in their last two. Jordan has been huge on the glass and has been setting good screens, so it makes sense. We'll see how it works out for them.

DeAndre Jordan said he feels winning at the Olympics is more important than winning NBA championships.

"I think they're above NBA rings," Jordan said regarding bringing home a gold medal for Team USA. "I may get in trouble for saying that, but I believe that. I feel like this is more special. You're not just playing teams in the U.S. You're playing teams from all over the world. And this is even more special because there's an NBA champion crowned every year, but this is every four years. You've got to really think about that, man, because it's extremely special."

DeAndre Jordan said he's not feeling any extra pressure to win in 2016-17.

Both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin can become free agents next summer, but Jordan isn't letting that influence how he approaches the upcoming season. "They’re both extremely talented players," Jordan said. "I believe whatever decision they make is going to be a great decision. I’m not worried about it right now. I don’t expect it to be a distraction during the season." While Jordan's free throw shooting leaves something to be desired, Jordan is one of the more dominant big men in the game and will continue to be a valuable fantasy asset this upcoming season.

DeAndre Jordan scored eight points with six rebounds during an 80-45 win over Venezuela on Friday.

It wasn't the best performance from Team USA, making just 42.4 percent from the field. They continue to destroy teams on the glass, which isn't surprising with their size advantage. As for Jordan, NBATV reported the Team USA coaches are working on his free throw release point. Maybe some new input can help, but probably not.

DeAndre Jordan has drawn praise from both Mike Krzyzewski and Jim Boeheim during his tenure with Team USA.

"As good as I thought he was on TV and on tape, he’s better," Coach K said. "He’s really one of the great players in the league right now, and an amazing teammate. He does dirty work willingly, but he does it at the highest level. I think he’s a special player." Separately (and previously), Boeheim had this to say about DJ: "He’s about the hardest working big guy I’ve seen…He just goes after everything. He’s always engaged, he’s moving, there’s no down time, he’s not taking a play off and he plays hard." It's worth keeping in mind that Jordan played a significant chunk of his regular season last year without Blake Griffin, so that's something to factor in when deciding where Jordan will come off the board on fantasy draft day.

DeAndre Jordan has accepted an offer to play with Team USA at the 2016 Summer Olympics, according to Marc Stein on ESPN.

Andre Drummond will reportedly not play with Team USA, according to Stein, and Jordan will reap the benefit of the extra roster spot. Jordan put up big numbers in 2015-16 with averages of 12.7 points, 13.8 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks on 70.7% shooting from the field and will be an extremely valuable fantasy asset for owners who are willing to punt free throws in 2016-17.

DeAndre Jordan tweaked his ankle in the fourth quarter on Friday and did return, finishing with 15 points, 20 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two turnovers in 34 minutes.

He rolled his right ankle in the fourth quarter as he stepped on Mason Plumlee's foot. Jordan did come out of the game right away, but he didn't go to the locker room. His ankle injury is very unlikely to affect his offseason program. Jordan led all postseason players in rebounds per game and was second in the regular season. His summer figures to be slightly more uneventful this year.

DeAndre Jordan scored seven points with 15 rebounds, one assist, two steals and four blocks against the Blazers on Monday.

He's been terrible at the line in his last three, making just 5-of-22 (22.7 percent). Jordan is not really capable of scoring on his own, so losing Chris Paul (hand) is bad for his offensive output. He's probably not someone you'll want to use in DFS on Wednesday.

DeAndre Jordan made 4-of-7 from the field and 3-of-10 from the line for 11 points with 16 rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 32 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

Coach Terry Stotts did go with the Hack-a-DJ in this game and it worked. Stotts famously used this strategy more than anyone this year back when Jordan went 12-of-34 from the line on Nov. 30. It'll be interesting to see how Stotts goes after Jordan in Game 4.

DeAndre Jordan scored only three points on Wednesday but he corralled 18 rebounds (five offensive) with a career-high-tying five assists and three blocks in 34 minutes.

DJ was just 1-of-6 at the line and 1-of-4 from the field but his presence was keenly felt, helping the Clippers defend their home court for a 2-0 lead in the first round. The Clippers' rebound rate ranked 29th this season, while the Blazers ranked 10th, but through two games the Clips are winning the battle of the boards 100-92.

DeAndre Jordan finished the Clippers' Game 1 victory with 18 points, 12 rebounds, four blocks, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes of action.

DJ air-balled his first free throw attempt and finished 8-of-18 from the line as Portland resorted to the 'Hack-a-Jordan' strategy often down the stretch. "[The Blazers] should use it," Doc Rivers said before the game. "There’s nothing wrong with it. It’s part of the rules...overall, it’s been pretty good for us." Rivers' confidence was justified as the Clippers won Game 1 by 20 points despite Jordan's copious free throw attempts.
