Ian Clark will be inactive for Game 5 on Monday.
That means James Michael McAdoo and Brandon Rush should be active for tonight. Clark has solid in his time out there, but the Warriors need forwards out there to help offset the loss of Draymond Green. Rush is a candidate to start tonight. Jun 13 - 3:09 PM

Ian Clark said that he feels "comfortable" playing for the Warriors.

And why wouldn't he, really? "These guys and the coaching staff, they make me feel comfortable. And especially with these guys, it’s much easier to play the game," Clark said. "Especially when you know they have confidence in you." He went on to add even more: "They let you play to your strengths, and that’s all that you can ask for when you want to excel on the basketball court," Clark said. "That’s how it was in college, and I can feel myself doing it here."

Ian Clark scored 15 points in Saturday's win over the Nuggets, adding one board, one assist and one 3-ponter in 37 minutes.

Stephen Curry left the game at halftime due to a shin contusion and Brandon Rush (hamstring) sat this one out, so Clark took full advantage of the extra minutes. He shot 7-of-8 from the field in this one and is averaging 15 points and 2.0 3-pointers over his last four games. He will have very little fantasy value when the Warriors are at full strength, so he is only on the radar in deeper leagues in case Curry needs to miss more time.
Jan 3 - 3:32 AM

Warriors SG Ian Clark scored a career-high 21 points off the bench on Wednesday, making 8-of-12 shots with three 3-pointers and one steal in just 24 minutes of action.

Clark made the most of an expanded opportunity -- Steph Curry and Leandro Barbosa were both out due to injury and the Warriors trailed by 18 points at halftime. He did little beyond scoring, adding one steal with zero rebounds or assists, and this random outburst can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Ian Clark will return to the bench for Saturday's game vs. the Bucks.

He didn't play well in a start against the Celtics on Friday, but he won't have any fantasy value with Klay Thompson (ankle) back in the lineup. Leave Clark on the wire.

Ian Clark played 19 minutes in the starting lineup on Friday with six points and three rebounds.

He was blocked a couple times early in the game and the Warriors just went with Shaun Livington and Andre Iguodala to take the wing minutes for much of the game. Clark has very little value after whiffing on his best chance of his career.

Ian Clark will start in place of Klay Thompson (ankle) on Friday against the Celtics.

The 2013 Summer League MVP will get his biggest chance tonight. Stephen Curry might have a career-high in shot attempts and Draymond Green should have a high usage rate, but Clark is not a bad punt play in DFS tonight. Brandon Rush, Leandro Barbosa and Andre Iguodala should step up, too.

If Klay Thompson (ankle) and Leandro Barbosa (illness) are out, Ian Clark could start on Friday against the Celtics.

It makes sense because the Warriors would want to keep Andre Iguodala in the second unit. Even with a starting job, Clark probably won't be taking too many shots with Stephen Curry and Draymond Green likely doing all the heavy lifting. He would still be a better candidate in fantasy than Brandon Rush, though.

Ian Clark was hot in the first quarter against the Jazz on Monday, finishing with 12 points, two rebounds, one block and four 3-pointers in six minutes.

Revenge game? Clark was with the Jazz last season and has looked good at times in the past two seasons. He can shoot it, but obviously won't have much value if he's only getting six minutes.

Ian Clark said he isn't bothered by the fact that he is a long shot to make the Warriors final roster.

The 24-year-old faces an uphill battle to hook on with the Warriors, but is trying not to think about that. "For me, it’s just about playing with confidence, knowing what I can do and what I can’t do, and improving the things I need to do better," said Clark. Fantasy owners can ignore Clark as he'll be buried on the Warriors bench even if he is able to make their final roster.

Ian Clark has an "outside chance" of making the Warriors' regular-season roster, according to CSN Bay Area writer Monte Poole.

Clark shot 34.4 percent from the field in limited NBA action last season, spending most of the year in the D-League. Even if he does make the roster, beating out fellow training-camp invitees Chris Babb and Jarell Eddie, fantasy owners can safely shun him.

Warriors sign G Ian Clark.

He was with the Nuggets for Summer League and played well, averaging 13.4 points, 3.4 dimes, 1.6 steals and 2.4 treys. Clark played in just 23 games last season with the Jazz and only logged 7.0 minutes per night. He is likely just a camp body.

Ian Clark is hoping to earn a training camp invite from the Nuggets.

"Ian loves this stage," new Nuggets Coach Mike said. "He's more than just a shooter, which is why I like him. He's a guy that knows how to play, he can put the ball on the floor, and defensively I trust him." That's a strong endorsement for a summer league player, and it would be surprising if Denver doesn't invite him to camp if we're reading between the lines.

Denver claimed Ian Clark off waivers on Saturday.

The Jazz waived him on Thursday to clear a spot for Chris Johnson, but he wasn't getting playing time with them. Clark is unlikely to be in the rotation unless the Nuggets rest multiple backcourt players.

Jazz waive G Ian Clark.

He hasn't been getting playing time even with the Jazz becoming very thin on the wing. Clark was the 2013-14 Summer League MVP, but it hasn't translated to NBA production.
