DeAndre Jordan grabbed 22 boards against the Grizzlies during an impressive 97-79 win on Friday, adding 15 points with three assists, two steals and three blocks.

It was the third time he had a game with at least 15 points, 20 boards and three blocks this season -- the rest of the NBA has three of those games combined (Andre Drummond twice and Nikola Vucevic). Jordan has been a rebounding machine in his last seven, averaging 19.7 boards, 18.4 points, 1.6 steals and 2.1 blocks. It's also worth mentioning he hasn't missed a game since the 2010-11 season.

Chris Paul scored 19 points against the Grizzlies on Friday with four rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, one turnover and one 3-pointer.

The Grizzlies gave out flip-flops tonight and it wasn't a coincidence because their team/fans haven't been bashful about saying the Clippers flop a lot. As for Paul, his numbers in his last nine are amazing, averaging 20.0 points, 4.8 boards, 12.1 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 treys on 49.3 percent from the field. The Clippers are playing very well without Blake Griffin (elbow).

Chris Paul handed out 14 assists against the Rockets during a 110-105 loss on Wednesday, adding 22 points, three rebounds and two 3-pointers.

He's up to 9.9 assists per game and is getting very close to catching John Wall's league-leading 10.1. Paul has put up some fantasy MVP-type numbers in his last eight, averaging 20.1 points, 4.9 boards, 12.0 boards, 1.5 assists and 1.3 treys on 49.2 percent from the field and 93.5 percent from the field. He and DeAndre Jordan are carrying the Clippers right now with a little Jamal Crawford, as well.

Spencer Hawes made 1-of-9 from the field for seven points with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

The usage and minutes weren't a problem, but Hawes just couldn't make shots. He is being counted on quite a bit, but there's no need to add him until his game starts to click. Plus, Blake Griffin will be back next month.
Feb 26 - 2:31 AM

DeAndre Jordan was up to his usual tricks against the Rockets on Wednesday with 22 points, 19 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 38 minutes.

That's six consecutive games with at least 15 boards, averaging 19.0 points, 19.3 boards, 1.5 steals and 2.0 blocks on 69.0 percent from the field in that span. Jordan is just the fifth player to have 15 or more boards in at least six games since 2009-10 (Anderson Varejao, Kevin Love, Dwight Howard and Kris Humphries). He's an absolute monster around the basket.

Austin Rivers scored five points with three rebounds and one block in 15 minutes against the Rockets on Monday.

It was nice to see him drop a career-high 28 points on Saturday. However, if you believed that was going to continue, we have a bridge in Brooklyn we'd like to sell you. Rivers can be left on the wire in most leagues despite his interesting story this season.

Clippers sign G/F Jordan Hamilton.

As expected, the Clippers have signed Hamilton to a 10-day contract. While he'll help provide the Clippers with some added bench depth, the 24-year-old can be left on the wire in all but the deepest fantasy leagues.
Feb 24 - 1:09 PM

The Clippers are preparing to sign Jordan Hamilton to a 10-day deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Hamilton has been playing with Reno of the D-League and will help provide the Clippers with some depth. While he may see some playing time with the Clips, Hamilton can be left on the wire in most fantasy leagues.
Feb 24 - 11:51 AM

Darius Miller has signed with Brose Baskets Bamberg of the German league.

Miller had previously worked out with the Los Angeles Clippers, but the Clippers decided to pass on the swingman. The 24-year-old shouldn't be owned in any fantasy leagues, but he can now be cut if any owners in deep leagues were holding on.

Chris Paul was spectacular pretty much all night on Monday, scoring 30 points, four rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, two blocks and two threes, but a late turnover sealed the Clippers' 90-87 loss to the Grizzlies.

Paul is gaining a reputation for mistakes in big moments and that's a bit unfair, but he's still in his prime and he can totally redeem himself by going huge in the playoffs. He has dropped off a bit in the overall rankings with just top 5-7 value on a per-game basis in 9- and 8-cat leagues, respectively, but counting games played he's a top 3-4 asset.
Feb 24 - 1:47 AM

Spencer Hawes saw 32 minutes on Monday against the Grizzlies, scoring nine points on 4-of-12 shooting (including a three) with one rebound, two assists and three blocks.

We don't know if Hawes' injuries are catching up to him or if he simply sucks now, but he just hasn't clicked in L.A. and he's not exactly making the most of Blake Griffin's absence. He's worth owning in the hopes his fantasy friendly game can start to take off, but not at the expense of a free agent with long-term prospects.
Feb 24 - 1:41 AM

Austin Rivers followed up his 28-point night against the lowly Kings on Saturday with zero points in 11 minutes against the Grizzlies on Monday.

Sounds about right.
Feb 24 - 1:37 AM

Blake Griffin is no longer using an elbow brace and had his stitches removed.

There is no change to his timetable and he is expected to be out at least two more weeks. The Clippers have been playing well without Griffin, but their seed shouldn't be a factor in his return date. He should remain stashed, but Spencer Hawes hasn't performed as expected.
Feb 23 - 9:24 PM

J.J. Redick nailed four 3-pointers against the Kings on Saturday, finishing with 24 points, three assists and two boards in 26 minutes.

After dealing with some back spasms prior to the All-Star break, Redick looks healthy again and the Clippers are going to need his scoring touch with Blake Griffin (elbow) still on the sidelines. If you are in need of points and 3-pointers, Redick is more than worth a look in most leagues.
Feb 22 - 12:50 AM

Austin Rivers (ankle) returned to action in an easy win over the Kings on Saturday, scoring a career-high 28 points on 11-of-19 shooting to go with one board, two assists, three steals and five 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

The Kings clearly didn't read their scouting report on Rivers, as this guy has been known to have ice running through his veins for a while now. All joking aside, this qualifies as one of the biggest flukes of the night, and the huge scoring outburst can largely be attributed to the King's shocking defense. Garbage time was also a huge factor here with 15 of his points coming in the fourth, so there's no need to rush and grab Rivers off the wire following this performance.
