Willie Reed finished with just two points over 10 minutes in Monday's start against the Rockets.
Reed made another start with DeAndre Jordan (ankle) nursing an injury, but it was Montrezl Harrell and Wesley Johnson picking up more of the slack than Reed. He went for 14 points and 13 rebounds last time out to turn the heads of fantasy owners, but this performance is exactly why you need to exercise extreme caution outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Willie Reed was solid in a spot-start for DeAndre Jordan (ankle) on Saturday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-6 shooting to go with 13 boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 26 minutes.

As we saw last season in Miami when Hassan Whiteside was forced to the sidelines for a brief period, Reed is capable of consistently bringing this sort of effort when given the minutes, so he could be someone to consider as a speculative add in deep leagues if you've got someone to cut. Just know that he'll return to being a negligible fantasy option once Jordan returns to the court, so we wouldn't advise cutting anyone with long-term appeal.

Willie Reed will replace DeAndre Jordan (ankle) in the starting lineup Saturday vs. the Kings.

Reed had four points and three rebounds in 10 minutes off the bench Thursday vs. the Warriors. Thus, despite drawing the start, Reed is a would be a risky DFS or streaming option, as Montrezl Harrell tallied 25 points (on 11-of-12 shooting), six rebounds and a steal in 27 minutes on Thursday.
Jan 13 - 2:03 PM

Willie Reed scored nine points with six rebounds and one block in 22 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

This wasn't a garbage time special with Reed being called upon after the Blake Griffin (concussion) injury. Reed is still behind Montrezl Harrell in the big-man pecking order, so he's only a speculative add in very deep leagues.
Jan 6 - 6:19 PM

Willie Reed notched eight points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 16 minutes on Wednesday.

Danilo Gallinari (glute) and Wes Johnson (foot) were both out again tonight. As a result, Montrezl Harrell's played exclusively at PF and Reed slotted into the backup center spot -- in fact, all 16 of his minutes came alongside Harrell tonight. Gallinari has been diagnosed with a partial tear and he'll be re-evaluated in January, so Reed is worth a glance if you need a center in a very deep league.

Willie Reed was a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

He's the third-string center right now, and he's got some work to do. Apparently, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra has the magic touch on backup bigs. Leave Reed on the wire.

Willie Reed played just six minutes with one steal against the Mavs on Saturday.

He didn't really play in garbage time, which came as a big surprise as coach Doc Rivers tries to figure out his rotation. We'll see what happens on Sunday, but Reed's value doesn't look great in even super deep leagues right now. Maybe that changes if the Clippers do opt to deal DeAndre Jordan.
Sat, Dec 2, 2017 04:22:00 PM

Willie Reed scored five points with five rebounds, two assists and one block in 14 minutes against the Jazz on Thursday.

Coach Doc Rivers has suggested that Reed could get minutes at the four, but chances are he was only talking about matchups against two true bigs. Reed's value won't change too much now unless you want to stash him because of a possible DeAndre Jordan trade.

Willie Reed scored six points on 3-of-5 shooting with one rebound, one assist and two blocks in 12 minutes off L.A.'s bench on Tuesday.

We haven't talked about Reed since the Clippers' season opener, but he's carved out a solid bench role with averages of 6.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.3 blocks in just 10.9 minutes per game. He's also shooting 67.6 percent from the field, but belongs on the wire as long as DeAndre Jordan is healthy.

Willie Reed scored eight points with five rebounds in 13 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

After backing up Hassan Whiteside, he's in a very similar spot this year behind DeAndre Jordan. Reed can do some damage when he gets minutes in the upper teens, but DJ is going to play a lot on this team and he's extremely durable.

Willie Reed's arraignment hearing for his battery charge in Miami has been rescheduled to October 16th.

Reed was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery back in early September. Reed's wife proclaimed that she did not call the police and that the incident was "totally blown out of proportion." However, the accusations on records are incredibly troublesome. Reed could be looking at a lengthy suspension.

Willie Reed's wife, Jasmine Reed, issued a statement on Wednesday saying that she will not press charges against her husband after he was arrested on domestic-violence charges on Sunday.

"This incident has been totally blown out of proportion. I did not call the police and I did not ask anyone to call the police on my behalf," said Mrs. Reed. "Willie is a good man and a great father. I have no intention of pressing charges and I have asked the authorities to immediately dismiss all charges against Willie. This is a private matter between my husband and I and for the sake of our family I would like to keep it that way."

Willie Reed's arraignment hearing in his domestic battery case has been scheduled for September 8th.

Reed was jailed over the weekend and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. The accusations made against Reed by his wife are incredibly troublesome. If found guilty, Reed will likely be facing a lengthy suspension. It's also possible that the Clippers choose to cut ties with him altogether. The arraignment hearing is just three weeks before the start of the Clippers training camp.

Willie Reed was released from jail on Sunday afternoon after his $1,500 bond was posted.

He's still in a world of trouble and has been charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. Reed's wife said that Willie grabbed her "by the shirt, hair, wrist and arm" after telling him she wanted a divorce and that she was also thrown to the ground -- she had red marks on her left wrist, right bicep, the right side of her chest and her back and swelling on her left foot. To make matters worse, their son was present during the incident. The Clippers said they are aware of the situation and are working with the NBA to "determine the facts around the situation." A court date has been set for Sept. 8.
