Two LMAM blurbs in two days! He shot 5-of-9 from the field Friday and had five steals in his previous game, but you would have to be in a seriously deep league to consider adding him to your fantasy team. Leave him on the wire. Dec 2 - 11:32 PM

Date:

Luc Mbah a Moute had six points, three rebounds and five steals in 30 minutes of another start for the Clippers on Thursday.

The five steals tied his career high, but he hasn't scored more than six points in his last five games. He belongs on your waiver wire.
Dec 1 - 11:06 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute had his best scoring game as a Clipper on Saturday against the Wolves, scoring 15 points with one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

He picked up some extra minutes for Wes Johnson tonight and he was getting easy looks all night. Mbah a Moute is an advanced stats darling, ranking second in the NBA for defensive and net rating. On the other hand, his fantasy value is basically on the other end of the spectrum for starters.
Nov 13 - 1:15 AM

Luc Mbah a Moute scored seven points with six rebounds, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Thunder on Friday.

He's currently the top player in the NBA for defensive rating. The problem for Mbah a Moute is he's not involved on the stat sheet. In fact, he's second to last among forwards with multiple starts in usage rate at just 9.7 (Kyle Anderson). Mbah a Moute has very little fantasy value.
Nov 12 - 1:43 AM

Luc Mbah a Moute started at SF for the Clippers on Thursday and missed both his shots, scored one point and played just 17 minutes.

He was awful as a starter last season and we've seen nothing that would suggest that will change this year. Ignore him until further notice.
Oct 28 - 2:08 AM

Luc Mbah a Moute is listed as the starter for the Clippers against the Blazers on Thursday.

He wasn't locked in as the starter, but he was the favorite to get the job. Mbah a Moute is usually in the bottom five for usage rate among starters, which should be the case again. He doesn't have much value. Expect to see a host of Clippers to see minutes at the three.
Oct 27 - 10:22 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute (right knee contusion) returned to practice on Saturday.

The veteran expects to be available for the season opener. Even though he's likely to start at small forward, there is absolutely no fantasy value in any format to be seen here.
Oct 22 - 4:52 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute (knee) was limited in practice on Friday.

He has a right knee contusion, but he's fully expected to be ready to start the season. Mbah a Mouse could start for the Clippers, but he's coming off a tiny 9.3 usage rate last year. There is not enough upside to draft him almost anywhere.
Oct 21 - 2:18 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute (right knee contusion) sat out Thursday's practice.

Mbah a Moute is simply dealing with a bruised knee, and head coach Doc Rivers expects him to be fully recovered in the next day or so. Mbah a Moute will likely shuffle in and out of the starting five this season based on matchups, but his fantasy value will remain non-existent regardless of how he enters the game.
Oct 20 - 2:45 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute is starting at small forward for the Clippers on Tuesday.

He will be joined by Chris Paul, J.J. Redick, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan as expected. Coach Doc Rivers said that the starting small forward job is wide open, but right now Mbah a Moute has a slight edge over Wes Johnson and Alan Anderson -- Paul Pierce will see most of his minutes as the backup four.
Oct 4 - 10:02 PM

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said the starting SF role is "wide open."

Luc Mbah a Moute and Alan Anderson both spent time with the first unit on the opening day of camp, but Wes Johnson should also be in the mix as well. As for Paul Pierce, he's expected to see most of his minutes as the backup PF. Even if Mbah a Moute wins the job, he won't be a fantasy option after averaging 3.5 points, 2.6 boards, 0.5 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks.
Sep 27 - 7:17 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute is finalizing a two-year, $4.5 million deal to return to the Clippers.

The Clippers are essentially bringing back their same team minus Jeff Green. Mbah a Moute started 61 games for the Clippers last year, averaging 3.5 points, 2.6 boards, 0.5 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks. He won't have much fantasy value in his age-30 season.
Jul 4 - 3:36 PM

Doc Rivers said that there were stretches he could have used Luc Mbah a Moute's defense during Wednesday's Game 5 loss.

Mbah a Moute picked up a DNP-CD as Rivers tried and go with more floor spacers, but given that the result was a loss, it sounds like Mbah a Moute will be back in the rotation for Game 6. Still, even when given the minutes, Mbah a Moute rarely makes a meaningful contribution to the stat sheet.
Apr 28 - 5:29 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute did not leave the Clippers' bench on Wednesday.

Mbah a Moute was bumped from the starting lineup in favor of Paul Pierce tonight, and it's anyone's guess whether he'll play in a must-win Game 6 on Friday.
Apr 28 - 1:00 AM

Luc Mbah a Moute started Game 1 on Sunday but he finished scoreless with five rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes of action.

Mbah a Moute's contributions rarely show up on the stat sheet so his nearly invisible line tonight is no surprise. Jeff Green came off the bench for three points in 16 minutes, Paul Pierce added two points in 11 minutes, and Wes Johnson chipped in three points and two boards in nine minutes. The Clippers' SF position is a wasteland for fantasy purposes.
