Montrezl Harrell posted eight points with five rebounds and an assist in 13 minutes off the bench Friday in Cleveland.

Harrell logged 13 minutes, hitting an efficient 4-of-5 from the field. The minutes actually tied a season high with the Clips, but don't get terribly excited. Remember, this game went to overtime, and the team is a big banged up. He was nailed to the bench in the previous outing Monday against the 76ers, so he needs a few more lines like this before fantasy owners in deeper leagues invest a roster spot on him.

Lou Williams went for 13 points and seven assists across 37 minutes in Friday's overtime loss in Cleveland.

Williams continues to jack up plenty of shots despite a bench role, attempting 12 or more field-goal attempts in seven consecutive outings. The Clippers have several injuries, particularly in the backcourt, so Williams continues to do the heavy lifting off the bench. He remains a pretty solid option across the board for his scoring in most standard leagues.
Nov 17 - 10:38 PM

Sindarius Thornwell posted a career-high 13 points with two assists, a rebound and a blocked shot in Friday's game in Cleveland.

Thornwell also was a perfect 3-of-3 from behind the arc as he continues to take advantage of injuries to Patrick Beverley (knee) and Danilo Gallinari (glute). Both players are nearing a return, however, so Thornwell's fantasy appeal is still rather limited. Perhaps he is a cheap DFS play if Beverley and Gallinari are sidelined again Saturday in Charlotte, but that's about it.

Wes Johnson hit 6-of-10 from the floor in Friday's overtime loss in Cleveland, scoring 15 points with seven rebounds.

Johnson also chipped in with four blocked shots, four assists and three steals while knocking down three triples, as he gave fantasy owners a little something across the board. He entered the game with just four blocks over his past nine contests, and his double-digit point total was just the second of the season, so those were probably the biggest surprises of the night.
Nov 17 - 10:33 PM

Blake Griffin finished with 23 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 42 minutes in Friday's overtime loss in Cleveland.

The frontcourt did a good job of taking advantage of the weak center position for the Cavs and they nearly pulled off the road upset. He has scored 23 or more points in a season-high three straight outings, and the double-double was just his fourth of the season in 14 contests. He'll be back at it Saturday night in Charlotte, and should get a bigger tests against the likes of Dwight Howard, Marvin Williams and the larger frontcourt of the Hornets.
Nov 17 - 10:30 PM

DeAndre Jordan finished with a season-high 20 points, 22 rebounds and three blocked shots in Friday's overtime loss at Cleveland.

Jordan was outstanding from the floor, hitting 10-of-12, while doing his usual at the free-throw line (0-of-2). His previous season bests were 14 points and 24 rebounds back on Oct. 19 on the road against the Lakers in the team's opener. He also hadn't had more than more than six buckets in a single game this season, so he really took advantage of the center-less Cavaliers.

Patrick Beverley (knee) will not play against the Cavs on Friday.

Coach Doc Rivers said he's going to miss at least one more game, but the team listed him as doubtful today. With Beverley out, it's the Lou Williams show while Sindarius Thornwell and Jawun Evans should be in the rotation. The Clippers need a win.
Nov 17 - 6:54 PM

Danilo Gallinari (hip) is listed as out for Friday's game vs. the Cavaliers.

The Clippers are beginning a 5-game road trip on Friday, but Gallo is not expected to play "for at least one or two of these games" according to coach Doc Rivers. However, Gallo is still not practicing and it's not a lock that he'll play at all on this trip. Wes Johnson and Sam Dekker will hold down the fort at SF, but neither player can be trusted in most fantasy leagues.

Patrick Beverley (knee soreness) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Cavaliers.

The Clippers have lost six straight games, but they'll likely be without Beverley "for at least one or two" more games according to coach Doc Rivers. Austin Rivers and Lou Williams will continue to play as many minutes as they can handle with Beverley on the shelf, while Sindarius Thornwell will play a significant amount of minutes as well. In terms of fantasy, Williams is by far the easiest to trust out of this trio.

Coach Doc Rivers said Danilo Gallinari (hip) is not expected to play "for at least one or two of these games" on the upcoming road trip.

The Clippers are really shorthanded and it's part of the reason they're on a six-game losing streak. Gallinari did not practice on Wednesday and Rivers didn't sound too encouraged he can make it back for most of the upcoming five-game road trip. With him out, it's been Wes Johnson, Sindarius Thornwell, Jawun Evans and the rest of the rotation picking up the slack.
Nov 15 - 5:28 PM

Coach Doc Rivers said Patrick Beverley (knee soreness) is not expected to play "for at least one or two of these games" on the upcoming road trip.

The Clippers start a five-game road trip on Friday and it does sound like Beverley could make it back at some point in that time. However, he's almost certainly out for Friday and it could be beyond that. The Clippers are the coldest team in basketball, but Lou Williams certainly isn't in fantasy. Sindarius Thornwell also should step up. Beverley fantasy owners should stand pat for now.
Nov 15 - 5:28 PM

Patrick Beverley (right knee soreness) says his knee is feeling "way, way much better."

Beverley has missed three straight games after getting fluid drained from the knee and feels he should have rested it at the start of the season. "I don’t feel like I took enough time off the first time. I was playing like 70%, trying to fight through it," Beverley said. "But it feels much better now, though, way much better, way, way much better, night and day." He wouldn’t say when he plans to return, but coach Doc Rivers said his Beverley would travel with the team on a four-game trip that starts Friday at Cleveland. We should have an update by Thursday.
Nov 14 - 11:39 AM

Lou Williams came off the bench and played 38 minutes, hitting 9-of-19 shots and five 3-pointers for 31 points, seven rebounds, six assists and five steals in Monday's 109-105 loss to the Sixers.

Williams has quietly scored in double digits in 10 straight games and had a 35-point gem on Friday. He's in cruise control right now and probably had revenge on his mind tonight, as he used to wear the Sixers uniform. The Clippers are banged up, but even when healthy, it looks like Lou Will is going to be the guy they turn to on the bench for offense. He should be owned everywhere.
Nov 14 - 1:36 AM

Sindarius Thornwell started with Patrick Beverley (knee) and Danilo Gallinari (flute) out again on Monday and hit 3-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, two rebounds and a block.

He played 31 minutes, but it sounds like Beverley (and maybe Gallinari) will be back on Friday, meaning Thornwell still belongs on waivers until further notice.
Nov 14 - 1:32 AM

DeAndre Jordan hit just 1-of-2 shots and never went to the line on Monday, finishing with two points, five rebounds and a block against Joel Embiid.

DAJ was on the bench laughing to himself after fouling out, probably in awe of how Embiid was able to render him useless tonight. Look for him to bounce back and take out some anger on the center-less Cavaliers on Friday.
