Date: Team: Pos:

Wes Johnson will start against the 76ers on Monday in place of Paul Pierce (rest).

He has actually played really well and is putting up early-round value in the last month or so. Johnson should be owned in standard leagues with some added value for tonight.
Feb 8 - 5:48 PM

Paul Pierce (rest) will not play against the 76ers on Monday.

It's the second half of a back-to-back after the road win on Sunday. Pierce is likely going to be ready for Wednesday, but he's not worth using in most leagues.
Feb 8 - 5:47 PM

Cole Aldrich pulled down 11 rebounds in just 13 minutes of action on Sunday, to go with five points, one assist, two blocks and one turnover.

Aldrich rarely does much of anything in Los Angeles, and we'll need to see multiple repeat performances before recommending him as an add in any league.
Feb 7 - 6:27 PM

Pablo Prigioni (facial contusion) logged 14 minutes off the bench on Sunday, but only managed to put up two points, two assists, one rebound and one steal on 1-of-3 shooting.

Prigioni's minutes will see a minor increase with Austin Rivers (fractured hand) set to spend the next 4-6 weeks on the sidelines, however, his playing time will likely be confined to the low-teens on most nights. He's not worth owning in any leagues, despite the increased opportunity.
Feb 7 - 6:23 PM

Jamal Crawford scored 11 of his 20 points during the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Heat, adding two 3-pointers, two assists, one rebound and one turnover through 34 minutes of action.

Crawford was a major component to the Clippers' win on Sunday, and he figures to earn some extended run as Chris Paul's primary backup over the next 4-6 weeks with Austin Rivers (fractured hand) sidelined. Jamal won't be much more than a late-round asset due to the fact he only scores and hits 3-pointers, but he's still worth owning in most leagues with his minutes likely to be in the 30s moving forward.
Feb 7 - 5:43 PM

DeAndre Jordan hit 3-of-4 shots and 3-of-14 free throws during Sunday's win over the Heat, to go with nine points, 11 rebounds, three assists and three blocks through 35 minutes of action.

This is pretty much your prototypical DJ line, and as long as you're punting away free throws, Jordan has been a top-4 option on the season.
Feb 7 - 5:27 PM

J.J. Redick scored 14 points on 5-of-11 shooting Sunday, to go with one 3-pointer, one rebound, one assist, two steals and two turnovers in 32 minutes.

Redick has been a steady mid-round guy on the year, and is a must-start guy every time he touches the court. There's no reason to believe he can't keep it up.
Feb 7 - 5:24 PM

Chris Paul scored 22 points on 8-of-23 shooting Sunday, to go with seven assists, two rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal and just one turnover in 34 minutes.

Paul couldn't get anything to drop to start the game, going 0-of-9 from the field, but in typical CP3 fashion he connected on eight of his final 14 shot attempts to close out the win. He's going to be a top-3 option moving forward.
Feb 7 - 5:17 PM

Pablo Prigioni (facial contusion) will try to play on Sunday vs. the Heat.

He was listed as a game-time call, but the Clippers need him with Austin Rivers (hand) looking at an extended absence. To be clear, Prigioni won't be a fantasy asset as long as Chris Paul is healthy.
Feb 7 - 12:50 PM

Austin Rivers has been diagnosed with a broken left hand and is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks.

He suffered the injury during Wednesday's game, and it now appears that he won't be able to return to the floor until March at the earliest. With Rivers looking at an extended absence, Pablo Prigioni could become the backup point guard, while some extra minutes could trickle down to Lance Stephenson and Jamal Crawford.
Feb 6 - 11:02 PM

Pablo Prigioni (facial contusion) is a game-time decision to face the Heat on Sunday.

He left Friday's game vs. the Magic and never returned. Austin Rivers (hand) is also questionable, so Jamal Crawford may be forced to be the backup point guard on Sunday. Prigioni is not a fantasy asset.
Feb 6 - 2:00 PM

Austin Rivers (hand) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game vs. the Heat.

He bruised his hand back on Wednesday and was held out of Friday's game vs. the Magic because he didn't feel like he was healthy enough to help the team. Pablo Prigioni (face) is also questionable, so Jamal Crawford would benefit the most if either player is held out. Rivers is not a fantasy option outside of deeper leagues.
Feb 6 - 1:59 PM

According to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register, the Clippers are not shopping Blake Griffin.

Teams have inquired about Griffin, but the Clippers still believe that they can win this season and they aren't interested in making a move. There were reports on Friday that the Clippers had discussions with Denver and Philly, but the talks obviously never made it out of the rumor stage. Expect Griffin to remain with the Clippers.
Feb 6 - 9:11 AM

J.J. Redick scored 20 points during a 107-93 win over the Magic on Friday with three rebounds, one steal and four 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

That's a decent bounce-back from his 1-of-9 from Wednesday. Redick is still sitting pretty as the NBA's No.2 man for efficiency among qualifiers and is dominating off screens. He should flirt with top 50-75 value in standard leagues despite his recent slump.
Feb 5 - 10:03 PM

Lance Stephenson scored 13 points with one rebound, three assists, one steal and one turnover against the Magic on Friday.

He made all six from the field and was oozing with confidence. "I feel like nobody can guard me in this league," Stephenson said after the game. Someone needs to get Lance some League Pass to watch Kawhi Leonard.
