Jamal Crawford said after Thursday's game that his right elbow is feeling much better.

"If we’re being completely honest, maybe I should have sat out some of those games, because it’s my [right] shooting elbow that’s been bothering me," Crawford said. "I love basketball too much. I’ll deal with the percentages or whatever. It’s frustrating, because I could only get so far on my follow through. But now, make or miss, the last two games it’s felt a lot better and I’m a lot more comfortable."

Chris Paul put on an array of moves during a 100-86 win over the Warriors on Thursday with 22 points, seven rebounds, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

After 13 hours of seeing Cliff Paul on TV today, Chris stepped up. Paul's assists have been on the decline lately with only one double-double in his last nine games. In that span, he's averaged 18.9 points, 5.0 boards, 8.2 dimes, 2.3 steals and 1.8 triples. CP3 is still a top-five fantasy player in standard leagues.

Jamal Crawford scored 24 points in 28 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday with seven rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers.

The rebounding has been a pleasant surprise lately and Crawford has set a season high in defensive rebounding rate in each of his last three games. Obviously, that's not what he's known for and his offense has made him the No. 110 player in standard leagues.
Dec 26 - 1:36 AM

Blake Griffin scored 18 points with 15 boards, six assists, two steals, one block and five turnovers in 39 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

It's just his ninth double-double of the season, which is surprising because he notched his 20th double-double of the season on Christmas last year. DeAndre Jordan being such a monster on the glass while Griffin does have career lows in offensive and defensive rebounding rate, which might be due to him passing more. He's still a fantasy beast even with the dip in boards.
Dec 26 - 1:27 AM

DeAndre Jordan grabbed 12 rebounds with 14 points and two blocks against the Warriors on Thursday.

He is some kind of rebounder. Jordan has eight games with a defensive rebounding rate of at least 40 percent, so it's no surprise he leads the NBA in total rebounding rate at 23.4 percent. He's an absolute monster in boards, blocks and field goal percentage to help offset the disastrous free throw shooting.

Spencer Hawes will not play on Thursday due to a lingering knee injury.

That just means more run for starter DeAndre Jordan, while Hawes remains day-to-day with the injury.
Dec 25 - 8:51 PM

Blake Griffin dished out a season-high 11 assists vs. the Hawks on Tuesday, while scoring 21 points with eight rebounds, one steal and one block.

He shot 9-of-17 from the field and 3-of-4 from the FT line with only two turnovers in 36 minutes, but Blake's terrific game wasn't enough to avoid L.A.'s third loss in four games. Their bench production begins and ends with Jamal Crawford, which is the root of the problem, but Griffin's fantasy owners won't complain as he racks up top-30 value with FT percentage and turnovers excluded.
Dec 24 - 12:43 AM

Matt Barnes struggled in Tuesday's road loss, scoring six points on 1-of-6 shooting with one 3-pointer, two rebounds, two assists and one steal.

He played only 21 minutes and has been lousy over L.A.'s past three games, averaging 3.3 points on 23.1 percent shooting, 0.3 triples, 3.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.0 blocks. That three-game slump comes on the heels of a productive stretch during which he managed mid-round value.
Dec 24 - 12:42 AM

DeAndre Jordan piled up 15 points, 22 rebounds, one assist and four blocks vs. the Hawks on Tuesday, while making seven of his season-high 11 field goals.

Jordan leads the NBA in rebounding at 13.1 per game, ahead of Andre Drummond (12.6), Tyson Chandler (11.9) and Nikola Vucevic (11.8). He has zero plays called for him in L.A.'s offense, hence the season-high 11 shots, yet he's a first-round fantasy value when you ignore his atrocious FT shooting. The Clippers were questioned for matching Jordan's four-year, $43 million offer sheet in 2011, but that deal will look like a steal compared to what he earns as an unrestricted free agent next summer.
Dec 24 - 12:41 AM

Miroslav Raduljica has left his team in China and plans to head to the NBA.

After playing just 14 games with Shangdong, Raduljica has decided to leave the team and pursue an NBA career. There are rumors that an NBA team may sign the Serbian center by January, but fantasy owners can feel free to ignore this situation.
Dec 23 - 9:35 AM

Matt Barnes scored just four points against the Spurs on Monday during a 125-118 loss with four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

He's not going to light up the scoring column, so nights like this are going to happen. If there's a player you don't think will last on the wire for long, it's not a bad idea to drop Barnes due to his inconsistent ways.
Dec 23 - 12:34 AM

J.J. Redick made five 3-pointers on his way to 21 points against the Spurs on Monday with one rebound, one assist and one turnover.

He's made 10 treys in his last two games and is one of the hottest shooters in the league right now. Redick is making three triples per night in December, but he should cool off soon. Consider selling high if you can.
Dec 23 - 12:30 AM

Blake Griffin scored 22 points against the Spurs on Monday with 22 points, six boards, six assists, one steal, one block and four turnovers in 38 minutes.

He's hoisting a ton of shots lately with at least 20 in three of his last four games. Griffin blocked his 10th shot of the season tonight, which has probably passed his foul shooting woes for the biggest knock on his fantasy value.
Dec 23 - 12:24 AM

Spencer Hawes (knee) is still out on Monday against the Spurs.

Hawes' knee problem has not been detailed in great length, but he's been out for almost two weeks with very few updates in between. He's not worth owning in fantasy leagues, anyway. DeAndre Jordan is the only center on the Clippers with fantasy value.
Dec 22 - 12:31 PM

DeAndre Jordan is leading the NBA with 13 rebounds per game, and he's also making 72.1 percent of his shots from the field.

Jordan is shooting a lousy 43.6 percent from the charity stripe after a 42.8 percent mark last season, so it's not getting any better. However, that hasn't stopped Jordan from amassing impressive value to the Clippers and fantasy owners. "My gosh, what he's doing every night is unbelievable," Rivers said. "He does it every night, doesn't ask for the ball, sets picks, rolls, still scores because he's so active." Jordan has five straight games with at least 14 rebounds.
