Player News - Clippers

Date: Team: Pos:

Chris Paul scored 20 points with six assists, three boards, one steal and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

He did turn the ball over five times, but the Spurs aren't exactly the easiest team to go up against so his owners should give him a pass. CP3 has now scored more than 20 points in four of his last five games, and he's one of the main reasons why the Clippers are finally starting to figure things out this season.
Feb 1 - 12:57 AM

DeAndre Jordan grabbed 19 boards on Saturday against the Spurs, adding eight points, one assist, one steal and four blocks in 31 minutes.

The guy is just a stud, and he completely controlled the paint all game long. Jordan will continue to be among the league leaders in field goal percentage, blocks and rebounds for the rest of the season, so there's no reason to sell-high. If he ever improves his free throw shooting, his ceiling is going to be insane.
Feb 1 - 12:50 AM

Blake Griffin scored 31 points with 13 boards, five assists and one block in 35 minutes in a win over the Spurs on Saturday.

Griffin's rebounding hasn't been spectacular this season, as this was just the third time in January that he collected double digit rebounds in a game. Having said that, his owners have to be pleased with this line, as he was able to shoot 12-of-21 from the field and connect on all seven of his free throws. As long as Griffin continues to score efficiently, his owners won't be too concerned about his lack of rebounds and blocks.
Feb 1 - 12:42 AM

Chris Paul scored 24 points on 10-of-20 shooting (including three treys) with eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals in Friday's loss to the Pelicans.

Paul has been a top 5-6 player this season and that's right around his ADP. DeAndre Jordan went for 12 and 15 with three blocks in the loss.
Jan 31 - 1:39 AM

Matt Barnes was quiet on Friday against the Pelicans, hitting just 2-of-8 shots (including two threes) with three rebounds and no other stats in 30 minutes.

Barnes has been playing at a mid-round level and owners shouldn't think about dropping him after a relatively isolated dud.
Jan 31 - 1:28 AM

J.J. Redick (back) will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Pelicans, sending Jamal Crawford back to the bench.

Redick will draw a very favorable matchup tonight against the Pelicans, so make sure he's on your active roster. His return will cause Crawford's value to take a minor hit, but both players should have no trouble being productive tonight.
Jan 30 - 6:44 PM

Blake Griffin praised Austin Rivers' play during a recent interview.

"I just love his aggression on offense and his willingness to attack the basket," Griffin said of Rivers. "And defensively, on the ball, he’s a dog on the ball. It’s tough to get around him." Rivers made a blip on the radar during Wednesday's game, scoring 12 points off the bench. However, this outing comes with an asterisk, as J.J. Redick (back spasms) did not play in that one. We need to see consistency from Rivers before we can get behind adding him in most leagues.
Jan 29 - 6:38 PM

J.J. Redick (back) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans, but he will try and play.

Doc Rivers said that he's hopeful to have Redick available for Friday, so it's looking like he has a good chance of suiting up. We'll have a better idea of Redick's status following Friday morning's shootaround, but his return to action would likely send Jamal Crawford back to the bench, and he'd see a minor decrease in value.
Jan 29 - 4:55 PM

Austin Rivers hit 5-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 12 points, one rebound and one assist in 22 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

He likes playing for his dad and was the only Clipper to score off the pine tonight. Put him on your radar, but it will take more than an injury to J.J. Redick (out tonight with back spasms) to give him fantasy value.
Jan 29 - 2:23 AM

J.J. Redick could return from his back spasms on Friday.

He sat out Wednesday night and Jamal Crawford got the start, but Doc Rivers says he's hopeful that Redick will return against the Pelicans.
Jan 29 - 2:22 AM

Jamal Crawford started in place of J.J. Redick (back spasms) and hit 5-of-14 shots and four 3-pointers for 21 points, three rebounds and two steals in Wednesday's win over the Jazz.

Crawford could be heading back to the bench on Friday, as Doc Rivers seems to think Redick will be able to play in that one. Crawford scored 21 points in the fourth quarter on Monday night and played well tonight, despite the poor shooting. He's a top candidate to win Sixth Man of the Year again, as usual. Chris Paul added 21 points and six dimes, DeAndre Jordan had nine points, 12 boards, and three more blocks, and Blake Griffin had 17 points and seven rebounds in the win.
Jan 29 - 2:19 AM

Matt Barnes had 14 points, five rebounds, an assist, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in Wednesday's comeback win over the Jazz.

The Clips have now won 13 straight versus the Jazz and Barnes played well tonight, despite an abdominal issue. He scored 18 points in his previous game and while he's inconsistent at times, he's been playing much better over the last month than he was earlier in the season.
Jan 29 - 2:16 AM

Jamal Crawford will start against the Jazz on Wednesday.

J.J. Redick is out with a back problem, which means Crawford could start for a few games because Redick has dealt with this before. Crawford should see more minutes and he was at his best while Redick was out last season, so he should be viewed as a must-start player in standard leagues.
Jan 28 - 9:11 PM

J.J. Redick will not play on Wednesday due to back spasms.

Doc Rivers will probably keep Jamal Crawford in his usual sixth-man role, leaving Redick's minutes to Austin Rivers and Dahntay Jones. Crawford and Matt Barnes should also pick up extra playing time. Redick has suffered from back spasms in previous years but it never cost him much time, so owners can consider him questionable to return in New Orleans on Friday.
Jan 28 - 8:06 PM

Matt Barnes (abdomen) said he will play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

Back on Sunday, Barnes had a wrap around his waist during warmups. This wasn't reported by the team until he aggravated it on Monday. He should get minutes as long as he's able to play, so give him a look in standard leagues. Plus, this should be an up-tempo game.
