Ian Clark scored a playoff career-high 18 points with one rebound, one assist, one block and five 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.
Revenge game? Clark was a weak link at time while with the Warriors and the team didn't bring him back on a minimum, and instead they went after Nick Young. While this was not a garbage-time special as Clark helped the Pels extend their lead in the third, he only scored nine points in the previous two games in this series with only six minutes in Game 2. He'll be a dicey DFS play on Sunday, but congrats if you punted with him today. May 4 - 10:40 PM

Ian Clark scored 10 points with one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

He was a Blazer killer last season with two 20-point games that came out of nowhere, and he closed out in this game. It was a somewhat surprising move because E'Twaun Moore was very strong on defense against C.J. McCollum. Clark should see minutes in the mid-20s in this series.
Apr 15 - 1:10 AM

Ian Clark (ankle) played on Monday, despite Alvin Gentry calling him "out" before the game, and had 13 points, four rebounds, six assists, a steal and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

Gentry changed his mind and the Pelicans are still fighting for playoff position, so there's a good chance Clark will get some heavy minutes on Wednesday. He's risky, but might be worth using in the finale.
Apr 10 - 1:11 AM

Ian Clark (ankle) checked into Monday's game vs. the Clippers.

Coach Alvin Gentry said before the game that Clark was out, but here we are. Clark was originally expected to miss 5-10 days but beat his timetable by a full day.
Apr 9 - 11:08 PM

Ian Clark (right ankle) will not play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

He was upgraded to questionable on Sunday, so maybe Clark can return on Wednesday vs. the Spurs. Darius Miller and E'Twaun Moore will pick up a few more minutes tonight.
Apr 9 - 9:12 PM

Ian Clark (right ankle) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Clippers.

The Pelicans announced on March 5th that Clark's ankle would sideline him for 5-10 days, so maybe he's progressing quicker than expected. Darius Miller and E'Twaun Moore have been picking up a handful of minutes in his absence.

Ian Clark (right ankle) is expected to miss 5-10 days.

He suffered a bad ankle sprain on Wednesday night and did not return. This basically rules Clark out for the rest of the regular season, but hopefully he can make it back for the playoffs. The Pelicans will likely stagger Jrue Holiday from Rajon Rondo more often while E'Twaun Moore and Darius Miller could pick up a few extra minutes.
Apr 5 - 2:07 PM

Ian Clark (right ankle injury) will not return against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

It did not look good and Clark is probably going to be on the sidelines. The good news is X-rays were negative, but he will get an MRI on Thursday. Rajon Rondo and E'Twaun Moore should get a few extra minutes.
Apr 4 - 9:19 PM

Ian Clark (right ankle) is headed to the locker room.

Clark went down hard after a missed layup, was on the ground for a bit and was unable to put any weight on his right leg as he was helped back to the locker room. It didn't look good, but we'll wait for an official update before speculating on what sort of timetable he'll be dealing with.
Apr 4 - 9:04 PM

Ian Clark ended up with 16 points across 21 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 109-104 loss against the Pelicans.

Clark was very efficient, hitting 6-of-7 from the field while going a perfect 3-of-3 from behind the 3-point line and 1-of-1 from the free-throw stripe. He has hit double figures in points seven times across the past 12 outings. Despite the uptick in offense his fantasy value is limited to the very deepest of leagues as long as Rajon Rondo (wrist) is healthy.
Apr 1 - 10:04 PM

Ian Clark returned to the bench on Friday vs. the Cavaliers, scoring seven points with two assists and one board in 21 minutes.

Clark was pretty disappointing in his last two games without Rondo, averaging 8.5 points and 1.5 assists. The move back to the bench won't do his fantasy value any favors and Rondo looked healthy in his return, so Clark belongs on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 30 - 11:02 PM

Ian Clark started for Rajon Rondo (wrist) on Tuesday vs. the Blazers and scored eight points with two assists in 29 minutes.

He finished 4-of-11 from the field, but missed all three of his 3-point attempts. Clark was averaging 11.0 points, 2.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.8 triples in his previous five games and was never anything more than a low-end asset. With the Pelicans off until Friday, there's a good chance that Rondo will be back.
Mar 27 - 11:25 PM

Ian Clark will start for Rajon Rondo (wrist) on Tuesday vs. the Blazers.

Rondo has missed two games in a row, but Clark is getting the nod over DeAndre Liggins this time around. Clark is on the radar as a punt option in DFS or streaming option in deeper leagues and is averaging 11.0 points, 2.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.8 triples over his last five games. The Pelicans only play three times this week, though.
Mar 27 - 7:29 PM

Ian Clark struggled on Wednesday with six points on 1-of-7 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs, adding two rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 24 minutes.

Clark rarely contributes more than a dash of supporting stats, so when he's not scoring and hitting 3-pointers he's likely to leave owners wanting more. His role has expanded and he's still averaging 13.1 points on 55.9% FGs and 83.3% FTs over the past few weeks, with 0.9 triples, which is enough to hold him in most formats.
Mar 21 - 11:39 PM

Ian Clark came off the bench and hit 9-of-15 shots and a 3-pointer in 31 minutes, finishing with 19 points, one rebound and four assists.

Jrue Holiday sat this one out due to an illness and both Clark and Rajon Rondo stepped up in his absence. Clark is hot right now, averaging 14.4 points, 2.6 assists and 1.2 3-pointers on 62 percent shooting over his last five games and has been getting it done even when both Holiday and Rondo are playing. He's averaging 28.2 minutes over his last five, making him worth a look in all leagues until further notice.
