Wes Johnson (left foot soreness) will not play on Monday vs. the Spurs.

This is a new issue for Johnson and it couldn't come at a worse time for the Clippers. With Danilo Gallinari (glute) still out, this means we should see a healthy dose of Sam Dekker and C.J. Williams on the wings.
Dec 18 - 12:37 PM

Lou Williams (right foot sprain) will not play on Monday vs. the Spurs.

Williams has been solid all season for the Clippers and has been on fire lately with December averages of 22.9 points, 7.0 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 2.8 triples. There's no word of the severity, so his fantasy owners should sit tight for now. Austin Rivers will be returning from his concussion tonight and is looking at more touches, while Milos Teodosic and Jawun Evans should be heavily involved in the offense as well.

Austin Rivers is expected to return from his concussion on Monday vs. the Spurs.

This confirms another report from Sunday. Rivers has officially cleared the concussion protocol and the timing couldn't be any better with Lou Williams now sidelined with an ankle issue. If you can live with some inefficient shooting, Rivers will be a solid streaming option for the injury-depleted Clippers.

Austin Rivers (concussion) is expected to play Monday vs. the Spurs.

He's officially being listed as questionable, but he's cleared the league-mandated concussion protocol testing, so it would be surprising if he weren't able to get out there. With Rivers back in action, Jamil Wilson or Lou Williams will return to the second unit, and there will be fewer minutes available for C.J. Williams and Jawun Evans. Stay tuned.
Dec 17 - 3:24 PM

Danilo Gallinari (glute) is being listed as out for Monday's matchup with San Antonio.

Gallinari doesn't have an official timetable, but Monday will mark his fourth straight game on the sidelines and for now, we'll be considering him doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Suns. With him out, Jamil Wilson will have another chance to start with guys like Sam Dekker and Wes Johnson also having the opportunity for extended minutes. Gallinari does offer plenty of upside, but his propensity to find himself on the sidelines has made him an annoying guy to own in fantasy hoops.
Dec 17 - 3:21 PM

Milos Teodosic made 5-of-14 from the field for a career-high 13 points in a 90-85 loss to the Heat on Saturday, adding six rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers.

He tried to take over in the fourth quarter, but Teodosic made just 2-of-10 from deep in this loss. The trust from coach Doc Rivers is still a big positive and his 28 minutes are a career high. Even with Austin Rivers back on Monday, Milos should still have a good shot to be in the 28-32 range for playing time. Despite his slow start, he's still worth owning in standard leagues.
Dec 16 - 10:49 PM

C.J. Williams scored nine points with two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Heat on Saturday.

He just scored a career-high 10 points on Friday, but he'll be losing his minutes when Austin Rivers comes back on Monday. Williams has very little value in even deep fantasy leagues.
Dec 16 - 10:43 PM

Montrezl Harrell scored 15 points with two rebounds, two blocks and no turnovers in 16 minutes against the Heat on Saturday.

He has a firm grip on the backup center job and he saw some power forward minutes today. Harrell is turning in some standalone value in deep leagues and he gets a bonus for stash appeal because of DeAndre Jordan trade rumors.
Dec 16 - 10:40 PM

Jawun Evans scored eight points with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Heat on Saturday.

He moved up the depth chart a little bit here, but Austin Rivers will be back on Monday. If you added for the weekend, it's probably time to drop Evans.
Dec 16 - 10:36 PM

Austin Rivers (concussion) is out Saturday night vs. the Heat.

The good news is he will be ready to go against the Spurs on Monday. Rivers was almost able to make it through the protocol, which means he's very close to being symptom-free. With him out tonight, Lou Williams will be very busy while Milos Teodosic should see minutes in the upper 20s. C.J. Williams could play while Jawun Evans takes a back seat after a big Friday.
Dec 16 - 6:43 PM

Milos Teodosic, Lou Williams, Wes Johnson, Jamil Wilson and DeAndre Jordan are listed as the starters in the game notes against the Heat on Saturday.

Teodosic will be back today after he got the night off on Friday. He played two games since his return with 21 minutes in the first and 25 minutes in the second, so he may be closer to 30 in this game. He's been off to a slow start, but Teodosic has upside in assists and 3-pointers.

Danilo Gallinari (left glute contusion) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Heat.

Saturday will be the third straight game Gallo has missed since his brief return to the lineup last week. Jamil Wilson has started each of the Clippers three previous contests but is averaging just 6.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in 18.0 minutes over those three starts. Sam Dekker will also continue to see additional playing time with Gallinari sidelined.
Dec 16 - 1:35 PM

Austin Rivers (concussion) is still going through the NBA's concussion protocol and is unlikely to play Saturday vs. the Heat.

If Rivers is still in concussion protocol as of Saturday morning, there is virtually zero chance he'll be cleared to play Saturday night. Jawun Evans had a terrific game off the Clippers bench Friday night, finishing with 15 points, six assists, six rebounds and five steals in 40 minutes. However, Milos Teodosic (rest) will return Saturday night, so Evans won't be able to log as many minutes.
Dec 16 - 12:40 PM

Jawun Evans set multiple career-highs in points (15), assists (6), rebounds (6), steals (5) and minutes (40) in Friday's 100-91 loss to the Wizards.

With Austin Rivers (concussion), Milos Teodosic (rest) and Danilo Gallinari (glute) all out for the Clippers, this was the perfect storm for the rookie. He did have a big 22-point effort in the preseason, and he was decent in his previous outing with six points, three assists, three rebounds and two steals in 25 minutes vs. the Magic on Wednesday. If the Clippers don't turn their season around, they will likely find a way to get Evans more involved.
Dec 15 - 11:11 PM

Jamil Wilson scored a career-high 10 points vs. the Wizards on Friday, hitting 4-of-10 shots and 1-of-2 free throws.

Wilson logged 23 minutes on the night, adding two rebounds, two assists, one triple and a career-high three blocks. The 27-year-old rookie is getting a chance to impress with Danilo Gallinari (left glute contusion) out, but this was his first real blip on the radar despite being in the rotation for a couple weeks. We'll need to see another strong game from him before we can get behind a pickup in deeper formats.
