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.
Apr 24 - 1:22 AM

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.
Apr 21 - 1:41 AM

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.
Apr 18 - 1:51 AM

DeAndre Jordan scored seven points vs. the Grizzlies on Tuesday, but he will not play on Wednesday vs. the Suns.

He added 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 28 minutes. Prior to Tuesday, Jordan was averaging 12.8 points, 13.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 2.3 blocks and 0.7 steals while shooting 70.2 percent from the field and 43.0 percent from the line. If you punted free throws in your league, Jordan returned top-three value on the season in standard 9-cat leagues. With Jordan out on Wednesday, Cole Aldrich will be a solid play in all formats.
Apr 13 - 1:02 AM

DeAndre Jordan (rest) returned from a one-game absence on Sunday and double-doubled with 14 points, 10 rebounds, one block and one turnover in 32 minutes.

In typical Jordan fashion, he shot 4-of-5 from the field and was a horrendous 6-of-23 from the charity stripe, but those that drafted him did it with the understanding that the free throw category would be a lost cause. In 9-cat leagues, Jordan ranks No. 3 overall when employing a free throw punting strategy.
Apr 10 - 7:24 PM

DeAndre Jordan will be back in the lineup on Sunday vs. the Mavericks.

He was given the night off on Friday vs. the Jazz, but the Clippers will be at full strength on Sunday except for Paul Pierce (rest). Make sure Jordan is active in all lineups today, but be sure to check his status prior to Tuesday's game vs. Memphis and Wednesday's game vs. Phoenix. Cole Aldrich will return to the bench and isn't worth using in most formats while Jordan is active.
Apr 10 - 2:08 PM

DeAndre Jordan (rest) will not suit up for Friday's game against the Jazz.

With Jordan on the sidelines Cole Aldrich figures to earn the start, and with averages of 14.7 points, 9.0 boards, 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 swat on 56.3 percent shooting in his previous three starts this season, he'll make for a solid streamer option or DFS target on Friday night.
Apr 7 - 4:56 PM

DeAndre Jordan (rest) is questionable for Friday's game against the Jazz.

With the playoffs around the corner, Clippers head coach would like to rest Jordan and some other starters on Friday. The health of the Clips bench may limit Rivers from resting everyone he wants, but Cole Aldrich is in line for big minutes if Rivers is able to rest Jordan against the Jazz.

DeAndre Jordan dominated the Lakers on Wednesday, scoring 15 points, grabbing 11 rebounds and blocking four shots in just 27 minutes of action.

The Lakers have given up the fourth-most points (21.1 per game) and rebounds (15.5) to opposing centers this season, so it's not a shock to see D.J. blow up tonight. He leads the NBA in FG percentage at 70.0 percent and is second in both boards (13.9) and blocks (2.3). If you're willing to ignore FT shooting he's been a top-five fantasy asset this season, which is worth remembering on draft day next year.
Apr 7 - 1:11 AM

DeAndre Jordan scored seven points with 14 rebounds and three assists vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

He only had to play 29 minutes because the game was a blowout, but the good news is that he's now more likely to play on Wednesday vs. the Lakers even though it's the second night of a back-to-back set. If the Clippers do decide to give him a night off, look for Cole Aldrich to benefit the most.
Apr 6 - 1:30 AM

DeAndre Jordan said that his tweaked right ankle won't cost him any time.

He briefly left Sunday's game and went to the locker room, but he returned and looked fantastic in the second half. Jordan is as durable as they come, so his owners can expect to have him on Tuesday vs. the Lakers.
Apr 4 - 10:06 PM

Returning from a DNP-CD on Sunday, DeAndre Jordan racked up 12 points, 12 rebounds, three blocks, two steals and one assist in 35 minutes.

Jordan tweaked his right ankle during Sunday's game and spent some time in the locker room, but he started the second half and looked no worse for the wear. The only caveat for fantasy purposes is, as usual, the fact that he shot just 2-of-11 at the free throw line.
