DeAndre Jordan wants to be traded to the Rockets, according to "sources" of Stephen A. Smith.

It's been a very long time since Stephen A. Smith reported something accurately, so we wouldn't read to much into this claim from his anonymous sources, as clicks and headlines tend to take precedence over actual reporting when it comes to Stephen A. The Clippers are currently sitting on the No. 7 seed out West, and as long as they're in the playoff hunt, they'll be much less likely to move Jordan.

DeAndre Jordan (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

He's missed two games in a row and coach Doc Rivers said on Monday that he'd be surprised if Jordan returned before the weekend. Willie Reed has had one strong game and one dud in Jordan's absence, but he'll be in the streaming conversation if DJ sits again.
Jan 16 - 9:06 PM

Tyrone Wallace posted 12 points on a very efficient 5-of-7 shooting across 33 minutes Monday against the Rockets.

Wallace was making another start with C.J. Williams (ankle) on the shelf, and he was able to chip in with three steals, two assists, two rebounds and a blocked shot in addition to 1-of-2 shooting from behind the arc. He has some short-term fantasy appeal as long as Austin Rivers (heel), Danilo Gallinari (glute) and Williams are on the shelf. He is also not a bad low-cost DFS option while starting. However, as the Clips get healthier his fantasy window of usefulness will start closing.
Jan 16 - 2:35 AM

Wes Johnson was good for 11 points, 12 rebounds and four blocked shots over 31 minutes in Monday's victory against the Rockets.

Johnson and Montrezl Harrell did a good job stepping up with DeAndre Jordan (ankle) sidelined, as they combined for six swats and were a Jordan-like 4-of-6 combined from the free-throw line. Johnson is averaging 12.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.7 blocked shots and 1.0 steals over his past three outings, but he'll be back to having minimal fantasy appeal in standard formats once Jordan can make his way back.
Jan 16 - 2:31 AM

Montrezl Harrell posted 10 points with six rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots over 32 minutes in Monday's win against the Rockets, his former team.

Harrell had a chance to exact a little revenge against his old teammates with DeAndre Jordan (ankle) on the shelf and only Willie Reed standing in his way. While Reed started, he was limited to 10 minutes, opening the door for the more gifted offensive player Harrell to shine. He hit 4-of-7 from the field and 2-of-3 from the free-throw line while posting a plus-8 rating. As long as Jordan is sidelined Harrell has some short-term fantasy and DFS appeal.
Jan 16 - 2:28 AM

Lou Williams finished with a game-high 31 points on 12-of-19 shooting in Monday's 113-102 victory against the Rockets.

Williams hit 4-of-8 from behind the 3-point line while chipping in with six rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots over 40 minutes. He is having a ridiculous January, averaging 31.5 points, 5.9 assists and 2.0 rebounds across eight outings. His hot streak has come with Austin Rivers (heel) and Danilo Gallinari (glute) looking on as spectators. He might see a bit of a hit to his fantasy value once those players can return, but he'll remain a must-start fantasy option.
Jan 16 - 2:21 AM

Willie Reed finished with just two points over 10 minutes in Monday's start against the Rockets.

Reed made another start with DeAndre Jordan (ankle) nursing an injury, but it was Montrezl Harrell and Wesley Johnson picking up more of the slack than Reed. He went for 14 points and 13 rebounds last time out to turn the heads of fantasy owners, but this performance is exactly why you need to exercise extreme caution outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Jan 16 - 2:17 AM

Blake Griffin was ejected late during Monday's 113-102 victory, finishing with 29 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and a steal in 35 minutes.

Griffin and Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni were assessed technicals for exchanging words in the fourth quarter, then Griffin was hit with a second tech after jawing with Trevor Ariza. Blake hit 11-of-22 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs, and his point total was his highest since Nov. 25, a span of nine games and a couple of injuries. The buy-low window will slam shut if he is able to replicate these results Wednesday against the visiting Nuggets. We'll see if there is any disciplinary action after his two techs.
Jan 16 - 2:00 AM

DeAndre Jordan (ankle) will not play on Monday vs. the Rockets.

We've been in the dark for a while here with nothing but the game notes to go by, but coach Doc Rivers confirmed that DJ is out tonight and added that he would be surprised if he played on Wednesday vs. the Nuggets. Willie Reed was terrific on Saturday in a fill-in start, putting up 14 points with 13 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals in 26 minutes.
Jan 15 - 8:52 PM

DeAndre Jordan (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against Houston.

We should get another update following Monday morning's shootaround, but Jordan is likely headed for a game-time decision. If he's out, Willie Reed would be in line for another start, and he'd be someone to think about as a streamer after posting a 14-point, 13-board double-double as a starter on Saturday. Montrezl Harrell would also have the opportunity for extended minutes. Stay tuned.
Jan 14 - 6:38 PM

Wes Johnson scored 13 points on 4-of-9 shooting Saturday, to go with three 3-pointers, three rebounds, one steal, one block and zero turnovers in 24 minutes off the bench.

This was the second solid outing in a row for Johnson, but these games do come with a bit of an asterisk as both were against Sacramento's porous defense. Sam Dekker also had a nice game with 13 points, five boards, one assist, one steal and one turnover in 19 minutes, but with how inconsistent these guys have been this season, we'll need to see a repeat before getting behind adding either of them.
Jan 13 - 8:03 PM

Montrezl Harrell netted 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting Saturday, to go with six rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one turnover in 22 minutes off the bench.

Harrell should be flirting with minutes in the mid-20s while DeAndre Jordan (ankle) is on the sidelines, which is enough floor time for him to make a meaningful impact in fantasy hoops. Jordan's ankle injury doesn't seem very serious, but if you picked up Harrell during his recent three-game hot streak, you might as well just keep him until he gives you a reason to send him to the wire.
Jan 13 - 7:59 PM

Tyrone Wallace got another start on Saturday sans C.J. Williams (ankle), finishing with 12 points, three rebounds, one assist, one block and two turnovers in 32 minutes.

It's a very positive sign that Wallace has been able to log significant minutes with Milos Teodosic getting back to the court, and he's played very well since entering the rotation five games ago with averages of 13.2 points, 2.0 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.2 turnovers per game on 48.9% shooting from the field and 79.2% from the line. He'll likely fall off once Austin Rivers (heel) and Danilo Gallinari (glute) get back to the court, but neither of those guys are close, and Wallace has played well enough to warrant a roster spot in most leagues.
Jan 13 - 7:56 PM

Willie Reed was solid in a spot-start for DeAndre Jordan (ankle) on Saturday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-6 shooting to go with 13 boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 26 minutes.

As we saw last season in Miami when Hassan Whiteside was forced to the sidelines for a brief period, Reed is capable of consistently bringing this sort of effort when given the minutes, so he could be someone to consider as a speculative add in deep leagues if you've got someone to cut. Just know that he'll return to being a negligible fantasy option once Jordan returns to the court, so we wouldn't advise cutting anyone with long-term appeal.
Jan 13 - 7:49 PM

Blake Griffin went 3-of-8 from the field and 4-of-4 from the stripe on his way to 11 points, four boards, one 3-pointer, nine assists and five turnovers in 29 minutes on Saturday.

Ugly shooting has been a consistent issue for Griffin this season, who is currently connecting on a career-worst 42.9% of his shot attempts. Some of that has to do with the fact that he's jacking up a career-high 5.7 triples per contest, but the lack of spacing in Los Angeles hasn't done him any favors either. That said, he's still managed to produce top-60 value on the year and there's room for improvement, so he's someone to think about as a buy-low target.
